About meI am that girl who carried a book with her no matter where she went: a restaurant, a movie theater, a party. Saying I love to read is like saying need to breathe. As my family would say "Way to state the _obvious_".
About my libraryI love fantasy, science fiction (anything to do with space, time travel, aliens, supernatural, etc), historical fiction, crime (my favorites are by authors like Don Winslow or Ken Bruen, who write from the POV of the criminal a lot of the time. Bruen's books are poetry of violence and crime), crime thrillers, mystery, psychological thrillers, and I enjoy a good dystopian book. I recently got into horror. I watch that genre, but I just started to find that I like to read it too. I really like post-apocalyptic books. Not only because of the entertainment factor, but the symbolism in a lot of them. I think that you can have an intellectual discussion as long and deep about one as an old stuffy literature book.
