I'm a culture junkie who works at a bookstore. Pop, high-brow, junk -- it's all good. I try and consume it all. I read tons, especially young adult fiction. I also love quirky, offbeat novels; cultural analysis; mythology; girly fiction; fantasy; screwball romantic comedies; books with extremely flawed characters, yet somehow you really empathize with them; nonlinear narratives and language play.

Starcrossed - Josephine Angelini I really enjoyed this. I'm a sucker for Greek mythology and re-tellings, but I'm surprised at how drawn to the 'starcrossed' romance I was, which is not something I usually find done well, but I liked it.Definitely recommend it. Can't wait for the next book.
