About meI think I began to slip during that space of time between the end of elementary school and the beginning of junior high. Books like the Harry Potter series, Holes, the Dear America books, the works of Betty Ren Wright, and the indispensable How I Survived Being a Girl were capturing me attention, forcing me to put down the gameboy or skip a couple re-runs of afternoon television. Then darker voices like Lemony Snicket, the Brothers Grimm, Stephen King, and Gregory Maguire followed. And then, that merciless witch Shirley Jackson sunk her claws into my imagination, and I was lost to the world of literature forever.
About my libraryAt last, I've paid for a lifetime account, and that means every single book I've ever touched winds up...HERE. Here's to my fabulous collection of horror, fantasy, and sub-par YA fiction. Boo-yah.
