The Library {Living Outside the Stacks}

As a kid, I spent many a day in the library, helping out and talking to the librarian {Hi, Mr. Wolford}. When there was nothing for me to do, I’d grab a Danielle Steel novel {she got me through so much adolescent angst and fueled my desire to become a combat reporter – Message from Nam, anyone?} and head to the girls’ bathroom. Yep, I’d grab my coat and sit on the floor of the girls’ bathroom and read. I was weird. I don’t read nearly as much as I did as a kid {I can’t remember the last time time I picked up anything by Danielle Steel and reading in the girls’ bathroom at work is frowned upon – and disgusting} but when I do read, I like to share my thoughts.

In my reviews, I cover everything from the narrator to the characters to the plot. As a lover of books with a preference for audiobooks, I acknowledge that not all books were meant to be listened to. I also provide trigger warnings because the last thing I want to do is recommend a book and have it cause mental, emotional, or spiritual harm. As you read my reviews, please feel free to let me know if there’s any additional information you’d like for me to share.
