I love working at a bookstore and being able to talk books. I love a variety of genres but right now I am in my Young Adult paranormal/odd love stories phase. I'll read just about anything paranormal, but I can't seem to get into the zombies and mermaids so don't expect to see any reviewed by me. I am really into the ever evolving angel genre as well as anything dystopian, and of course vampires. None of this, of course, has anything to do with my degrees. I have a BA in Art History and European History and a Masters in Public History with an art history focus. When I am not working at the bookstore or reading, I am teaching art history. I grew up in a small town and moved to Albany eight years ago and I am currently planning my wedding (which has a book themed reception). I am an odd girl with odd interests but hey it seems to work!
