"When I’m not at the library I furiously debate Game of Thrones theories with my friends and family and stay up way past my bedtime reading."

What I do when I’m not at the library: Explore yummy restaurants about town, cultivate my collection of horror films, plan exotic and not-so-exotic travels, furiously debate Game of Thrones theories with my friends and family, and stay up way past my bedtime reading.  

Something unique about me: I was scratched by a baby tiger, after only agreeing to hold said baby tiger when I was told that baby tigers don’t have their claws yet.

If I wrote an autobiography, its title would be: Where’s My Hogwarts Letter?: Reflections From a Magical Muggle Life

The last thing I read: Bellweather Rhapsody by Kate Racculia

What I’m reading now: The Inquisitor's Tale, or, The Three Magical Children and Their Holy Dog by Adam Gidwitz

The worst book I’ve ever read: Twilight by Stephenie Meyer. Team Edward? Team Jacob? Team I Don’t Care.
