I’m someone who reads across genres and whose one requirement is that a book is well written. I might skew toward literary fiction, nature and science nonfiction, international settings, and young adult books, but I’ll also read romance, graphic novels, and more. Give me vivid settings, gorgeous language, well-developed characters and I’m a happy reader. Plot? That’s not always necessary for me to enjoy something. I like funny books that make me cry, and sad books that make me laugh, and I actively seek out authors from diverse backgrounds.

Some of my go-to authors are Melina Marchetta, Kristin Cashore, Jason Reynolds, and Louise Erdrich. Recent titles that I loved are Home Fire by Kamila Shamsie, The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui, and N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth series.

And, I’m an audiobook fanatic – you’ll hardly ever find me without one downloaded to my phone. Over the years I’ve listened to over 260 books while driving, cleaning, cooking, or gardening, so I’m ready with some suggestions for you if audio titles are what you’re looking for.
