Book worm

I have been a reader all my life. The world can churn around me but when I’m inside a good book I hardly notice. I’ve always felt like this photo depicts me perfectly! I love my laptop and can spend hours down Internet rabbit holes, but everything in my life is framed around books.

Whats your favorite genre? When I was a girl I loved mysteries. Today I’m drawn to memoirs and historical fiction.

One of my favorite books, though, is Out Of The Dust by Karen Hesse – a book about a young girl’s struggles during the Dust Bowl – and it is written as a long form poem. Written as a Young Adult book, it’s an easy read. You can finish it in just a few hours. Haunting. Real. Desperate.

What’s a book that has stuck in your head long after you’ve finished it?
