Book tastes

I tend to read mostly literary fiction and classics, but also enjoy contemporary fiction. I’m *always* up for trying something new.

Don't get this!

I’m generally not a fan of memoirs (unless it's by a particularly badass female) and romance (except for historically when I've been pregnant, which I'm currently not.)

Other notes

All the books listed in "My Library" are ones I own; my "Wishlist" category is relatively up-to-date. I tend to stack a lot of random things on Litsy and don't really use the app to track my TBR.
