About meI have a Master's Degree in English Literatureand am currently an English Teacher. My passion for literature runs deep, it is my true calling in this world and I shall remain a literary scholar for life.

About my libraryMy library is quite diverse. My main interest lies in postmodern and more contemporary works, but I am also an avid fan of fantasy and dystopian novels. I read a lot of YA novels to discuss with the kids in my classes, since there is a huge gap between prescribed work at school and what they're actually interested in. I try to catch up on the classics. Basically I'll read anything that grabs my attention.
