Who is the Brunette Librarian?

Welcome to my blog!

I am so excited to have you here.

Who am I?
Well, I am a small town Young Adult/Adult Librarian working in the heart of Missouri. I started working at a library when I was 16 after the librarians actually called me at my home to let me know of the opening. I had been in there so much, they thought I was a great addition! 

It's been many years now and I've had many different jobs, but I'm still at my same library. I love being the teen librarian and talking books with reluctant readers. Beyond that, teens who love to read are about the coolest kids out there.

I am also the Adult Librarian which means I do all of the Adult Programming! I orchestrate FIVE (yes five, oye) book clubs throughout four different towns. Each book group is a little different but its always fun and a wee bit wacky.

On a personal note, I am a romanceaholic. I love to read anything romance. I enjoy historical, contemporary and parnormal romance. Anything with teeth I usually like, but I haven't gotten into the zombie thing yet. We'll see though, there is always tomorrow!

So between the five bookclubs, the teen reading, and my personal love of romance books, I consider myself a fairly well read person...or at least trying to be!

I started my blog as a way to keep track of the books I read and what I thought of them. I read 10-20+ books a month, so sometimes its hard to remember which book is about what and why I thought that about it. So this little blog helps me keep track! I'm not the best writer, but I do love sharing the love of books and my favorite books with everyone. I also like to steer people away from bad books, because...Life is WAY WAY too short to read a bad book!
