I read for pleasure and that is the moment I learn the most.
—Margaret Atwood

It is true that a big perk of working in a library is that I am surrounded by books and fellow lovers of reading. However, what I have truly enjoyed and what interested me initially in librarianship is the opportunity to wear different hats. Organization, curiosity, reading, and the excitement of never knowing what my day will turn out to be are only a few things that made me realize that being a librarian was my calling. Not only do I have a love for books but also for video games (ask me what I’m currently playing!), film & television shows, research, and helping people. As for my genre tastes, I tend to “read with the seasons,” is what I call it. In winter months you’ll find me reading dark fantasy, adventure, dystopian and various YA novels and series including works by Sarah J Maas, Jennifer Armentrout and Sabaa Tahir. Fall is reserved for Thriller and Suspense (with a sprinkling of Horror) like Alex Michaelides and Stephen King. Spring and Summer I tend to start my rom-com and more beachy type reads, reaching for novels by Emily Henry and Ali Hazelwood. At the end of the day though, when walking through the stacks, I may never know what I will be inspired to read next.
