Hi there! My name is Madeline, and for as long as I can remember I’ve been addicted to reading.
I’m currently working on my MLIS. My goal is to work in a public library, preferably in youth services. I love reading, writing about, and studying YA, middle grade, and children’s lit.
In a past life (can you say that when you’re only in your twenties?) I worked at a lesbian nonprofit publishing company. For the time being, I’m working at an academic library and the Cooperative Children’s Book Center while I make my way through grad school. I spend a lot of time journaling/writing, enjoying craft beer, playing with my dog Willow, and reading (duh). I love traveling, running, biking, tea, feminism, queer culture, sad/moody movies, The Office, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and tattoos.
The title of my blog is a tribute to one of my favorite books, Roald Dahl’s Matilda, which inspired me to attempt (and fail) to read the classics at a very young age.
This blog is devoted mostly to book reviews, along with the occasional book-related list or post. On this blog you’ll find a mixture of YA, MG, and adult lit, including fiction, nonfiction, memoir, fantasy, horror, romance, and other genres. I read a wide variety, and especially enjoy books with LGBTQ characters and diverse casts.
Take a look around, and don’t be afraid to leave a comment if you have feelings about a certain book.
Oh, and add me as a friend on Goodreads!
