Hello. My name is Krys and I love books.
Not just love books… but unhealthily obsess about books.
For the past 4+ years I have worked in an independent bookstore. I work in the Children/Young Adult books as well as the Science Fiction and Manga sections. I grew up an avid reader and it seemed only natural that I would make a good fit in a book store. My primary reading interests are Science Fiction/Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Steampunk, Historical Fiction, Fiction, Classics, Young Adult and Intermediate reading. I do also read Manga and Graphic Novels, just not very much of them lately.
I grew up reading the likes of C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien. I’ve reread the Oz books by Baum so many times I can’t count. I also spent my youth reading (and rereading) Lloyd Alexander’s Chronicles of Prydain.
I did a number of Amazon reviews for several years prior to working at the book store. I also have a Goodreads account and have had reviews published in the Indiebound Kids Next newsletters. This blog is just another step. I’m not a writer, I’m a gusher. I can gush with the best of them about what I know and love… and I know and love books. I like to talk about them to anyone who will listen to me.
This blog is for me, but those of you who want to come along for the ride are most welcome.
