About my libraryI want to keep track of everything I've ever read. Unfortunately, I only found LibraryThing as an adult. If only I had started at age five!

I am a social scientist by day and superreader by night. I read pretty widely and don't mince words (ratings?) on books that fall short of what they should be. I have a soft spot for family secrets in creepy old houses, unreliable narrators, insular communities both fact and fiction, inadvertent comedy, references to Greek and Slavic mythology, meaningful YA and the rare plot twist I didn't see coming. I don't particularly care for romance that comes without any other plotline, pretentious narrative written solely for the sake of being pretentious, Mary Sues, unfunny alcoholic cops or general sappiness. I have eclectic tastes and I'm always up to try something new.
