|"Books have this remarkable way to change any aspect of your life down to a tiny minute detail. I've been reading for as long as I can remember. Books always gave me a safe space, an adventure, and a TV in my head. Ever since I was sucked into the world of literature, my dream job has been to work at a bookstore, and now my first job is my dream job. My reading tastes stretch far and wide; if a book has a decent page number and killer dialogue, I'm hooked instantly. In particular, I love YA, fantasy, sci-fi, and historical fiction to feed my reading habits."|
