Hello! I am so excited that you have stumbled upon my love for reading. I am a twenty something Young Adult librarian that wishes I could be a Jedi/slytherin/Shadowhunter and I am slightly...well very addicted to Fan Art. I also am a reviewer for School Library Journal :)
My favorite books are paranormal romances, but I will basically read anything if its good. I read a lot of YA books simply because I am a YA librarian, but I do occasionally read some adult and middle grade fiction. I love anything written by Cassandra Clare, Rebecca Fitzpatrick and Sherrilyn Kenyon. Currently, they are my auto-buy authors.
About Candie Chatham
I am a Graphic Artist for a Library System but I have always had a love for people especially young people! I have a background in Children’s education of almost 12 years some of which was the very challenging Montessori teaching method. I have also worked with high school and college age students through my church for a number of years and have done volunteer work for a local radio station. I now work for a library where I get to do all kinds of fun things like teach classes to all ages and figure out fun things to challenge people with art!
I have always been a reader since I was very young and have had my own library card since I was old enough to have one! My favorite genre is dystopian!!! I just love all the futuristic things author come up with! It amazes me the imagination it takes to bring things to life that don’t even exist! I see things as I read them and that is how I decide whether a book is good or not. If I can see a picture of what I am reading well enough that the story plays out in my head I am in love with that book from the start! This is my favorite reading genre but I read all types of things and basically if it reaches out and grabs me by the end of the first chapter, I am reading it to the end!
Some of my favorite things to do besides reading are painting, sewing, quilting just about any kind of crafting! I don’t sit still very well. I am always doing something. It’s rare that I don’t have a project or two going at one time! Oh, although I don’t get to do it as much as I used to I am a singer as well.
