About Me

 

“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.” – Mark Twain

 
 
 
 
 
 

Welcome! A quick idea of who I am:

Let me ‘splain, no there is too much. Let me sum up. Librarian, Slytherin, Mother of Dragons, defender of Hyrule, villain lover, cat whisperer, and lover of the macabre. I read, I blog, and travel by Babylon candle.

A longer version: My name is Alyssa and I am a self-proclaimed bibliophile. I love books of all shapes, sizes and smells. I don’t think that I could choose just one favorite book if you asked, but I can say that it would probably be written by Neil Gaiman or Juliet Marillier. 

I have my Master’s in Library Science and tend to work as a Reference and Teen Librarian when it suits my fancy, I sometimes even work in the Children’s Department – I am a gal of all trades!

When I am not reading, I am baking, writing, hiking, playing video games (Zelda for always, Fable and The Witcher, currently!),  binge watching Sherlock, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who, The Mindy Project, or whatever else I am obsessing over at the moment! I also love naps, tea, coffee, and cats.

Specifically, my two beloved felines:
 
Celia…
 
 
 
…and Cordelia
 
 
That’s it for now, but I am pretty active and open on Twitter so feel free to drop by and say hello!

  1. Awww your cats are very cute. Books are great! I ❤ them too! 🙂 haha. And hiking. I've fallen into reading more YA again and paranormal-romance is my favourite genre!

  2. Hi from us here at http://LibraryLionsRoar.blogspot.com I was happy to find you on Twitter today then popped into Books Take You Places. Terrific blog. We interview librarians on Library Lions. Our mission: to Roar for Libraries, showcase youth librarians and their innovative programs. I’d love to schedule an interview with you if you’d like. It’s easy, we just send you a questionnaire to fill out. email jlcarey@hotmail.com if you’re interested.
    Best in books, Janet Lee Carey Author and Library Lioness
