I'm a public librarian in Massachusetts who loves to give reading suggestions, whether asked or not, a specialty known in the library world as "reader's advisory". I read a lot -- mostly literary, genre, and young adult fiction, but also short stories and memoirs -- and listen to audiobooks. Newer favorites include Jennifer Egan, Laurie R. King, Lionel Shriver, Carolyn Parkhurst, Penny Vincenzi, Michael Connelly, Alexander McCall Smith, Orson Scott Card, Patrick Rothfuss, and Cassandra Clare. Older favorites are Lorrie Moore, Anne Tyler, Ian McEwan, Susan Howatch, Joanna Trollope, and Connie Willis.
