Bookfairs Manager

  • Children's Fiction
  • Fiction
  • Young Adult

I love variety and do not like being bored. Kids & YA make up most of my reading diet, but I will foray into adult for a change of pace. Fiction, nonfiction, it doesn't matter. Looking for books that entertain, challenge, inform, or preferably, all of the above.

  • Character-Driven Fiction
  • LGBTQ+
  • Magic

I'll love any genre, fiction or non fiction, if I finish the book and feel inspired. Seeing characters learn, grow, and change for the better is more important to me than how realistic the plot is. When an author really focuses in on the emotional journeys of their characters, I'm sold.

I am drawn to the strange, whether it is David Foster Wallace’s ADD driven multi-plots, epistolary works like Ella Minnow Pea, experiments like House of Leaves, hardcore nonfiction on obscure topics, or almost any graphic novel, I ain’t afraid o’ no book!

Floor Manager

  • Fantasy
  • Literary Fiction
  • Young Adult Fantasy

When I open a book I want to be transported into another world. I use reading as an escape from the hectic world around us. I don't necessarily mean that the book has to be happy go lucky, but I want to experience another version of this life.

  • Character-Driven Fiction
  • Fantasy
  • Memoir
  • Young Adult

I love reading anything character driven, or where the characters and their development are the center of the book. I have ALWAYS loved young adult fiction and fantasy, and that love will never die. Big fan of memoir, fantasy, and general fiction - but mostly anything that makes me ~feel~.
