My Librarian Mallory

I think books are like people, in the sense that they’ll turn up in your life when you most need them. 

—Emma Thompson 

Becoming a Librarian seemed like a no brainer to everyone but me. All the typical signs were there (loves reading, long TBR list, always carries a book), but it seemed too good to be true. I am so happy that I went down this path because I love my job. Besides recommending and reviewing books, I love helping people and being creative. To this day, I don’t people watch, but I book watch. I enjoy seeing what people are reading and talking to them about it. I will read anything (horror and science fiction is iffy unless it is really recommended and not too scary). You can find me lost in a meaty historical fiction, a swoon worthy romance, a literary classic, or a new/popular fiction novel. I am fortunate to have a mom who loves reading and this love flows through me. Now that I have a son, I am instilling my love of reading onto him and is there anything better than that?
