About my libraryThe library is an ecclectic mix of interests, running from classic literature to true crime to political history to science fiction. I am currently working my way through about four different 100 best lists, catching up on all of the great literature I refused to read as a rebellious English student.

TBR Stack - 2016 remainders:
I'm starting the new year with some choices that will either fuel what I'm writing or will help with some technique within the writing I'm doing - voice, structure, etc. There are also more non-fiction titles in this stack, as those were a little lacking last year.
