Cricket here, I am a Librarian, photographer and some of you may know me as the Little Library Muse. I have a Bachelors in Journalism with a minor in Studio Art and my MLIS in 2010. I have worked in libraries for about 10 years now and eventually that's when I decided to get my degree to become a librarian. I'm still trying to figure out my path as library professional, though some of my friends already feel I'm on it. I have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. I was one of those children that always asked for a pass to the library and actually went to check out books. At that time they were using cards and believe me they knew me by name. I read so many different things and wish that Goodreads was around when I was younger because my reading list would be massive. I used to read a lot of Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High, V.C. Andrews and R.L. Stine(until I got scared one night, no more). My reading tastes are still diverse as ever, now I read Eric Jerome Dickey, Iris Johansen, Karin Slaughter, Chelsea Cain, Allison Pittman, Beverly Jenkins, Cassandra Clare, Aimee Carter and it goes on and on. Though, primarily I read YA fiction, I also read historical romance, paranormal, fantasy, mystery, middle grade, and some other things. My main interests are music, photography, reading, music, movies, baking and singing. I love being able to take a journey every time I open a book, so that said...where should I go next?
I live in Alabama with my daughter. I am a Licensed Social Worker, although I’m not currently practicing. I began working at in the University Library as a broke college student because I thought a library job would give me time to study. I learned quickly that there was not much time to study while working in circulation services. I found that I worked with some of the best people in the world who encouraged my reading endeavors. I have continued working for the library ever since. My current position gives my time to read, when I can get myself to focus. As of yet, I have not considered returning to school to get my MLIS. My interests include reading, music, photography, movies and TV.
I became a part of this blog because I work with Cricket and I was always saying I would guest post on her blog sometime and that we needed to have a group blog. Sometimes I think she got this blog started just to get me to shut up and do it. I love reading and having this opportunity to share my thoughts with others.
