Hi, I'm Melissa. You can usually find me poking around the YA section of Borders, you'd probably just mistake me for one of the 15 year olds lol but infact, I am an ALA Card carrying Librarian working with K-5 students.
I have a soft spot for YA Lit, fairy tale retellings (especially versions where the Princess kicks butt, and fractured fairy tales ) and anything inspired by folklore...as well as books with fantasy elements, mysteries, and anything creepy or supernatural. I grew up loving ghost stories and mysteries, and it still holds true.
I'm Newbie to the book blogger field, I had an mostly unused domain name, and have been following some awesome book bloggers on twitter and decided to try and post more regularly about the books I've read. wheee!
You may not know me or my work but I am the author of six critically acclaimed, award winning novels and I have been nominated twice for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction. On Jan 9th 2010 my debut novel SUGAR will celebrate it’s 10th anniversary and I hope you will buy a copy or to help commemorate this milestone. And yes, Kindle purchases count!
