About meI will read just about anything, but my Books Wheelhouse is made up of short story collections (especially with a feminist/fairy tale retelling bent), poetry, memoirs, and literary fiction. I love audiobooks, especially for how they accompany me (like a good friend) on long travels or during mundane tasks.

About my libraryI'm striving to increase the diversity of my books - clearing out some of the "dead white guys" and making room for more people of color, feminism, works in translation, LGBTQ, and other marginalized voices in literature.
