I'm a youth services librarian who loves rainy days spent curled up with a good book. I enjoy reading all genres, but my favorites are historical fiction and fantasy. I also love reading fan fiction! When I am not reading, I can be found binging TV shows, going for nature walks and brewing lots and lots of coffee.
