Me & MTM are tight like that

Hi, I’m Stacey.

If you’re looking for bookish enthusiasm, delivered by your friendly neighborhood book geek, you’ve landed at the right place.

I’ll tell you what books I like and why I like them—in a way that’ll help you decide pretty fast if you’d like them, too.

I’m pretty sure my mom had told me to go outside and play… so I did.

Despite all this reading—and in spite of my early book-cataloging tendencies (when I was 10, I typed Author, Title, and Series catalog cards for all of my books)—it took me another 11 years to realize I was librarian material.

When I’m not reading or librarian-ing, I can be found…

If you’re just aching to know more, here are 3 things you don’t know about me…

  • I’m pigeon-toed and wicked clumsy
