I’m rubbish at writing about myself but I’ll try.
I’m Alahna and welcome to my blog! I’m 25 years old and I live in Baltimore, MD (hence the “Charmed” in the blog title. It is Charm City after all!)
I majored in history and then went on the receive my Masters in Library Science. While there is so much more to librarianship than a love of books and reading that is what originally led to my decision when choosing a masters program. I’m still searching for a job but I’m filling my time by reading, reading, and more reading.
I read mostly YA. The few times I delve into adult literature it is usually a fantasy/sci-fi/supernatural type book. I tend to stay away from Contemporary/Realistic fiction, sometimes in YA but especially in adult books because I often find them a tad depressing. I do try to read a few middle grade novels each year because I truly believe that the tween years are extremely important in building an army of life long readers.
Beyond that I am usually up for any genre except for non-fiction. After four (ok 5, but I spent the last year writing my thesis) years of studying history I am over non-fiction.
When I’m not reading I can be found watching too much TV, practicing yoga, spending time with my two cats (or maybe my boyfriend but probably the cats), in a book store buying more books to add to my TBR list or at the grocery store. I swear, I enjoy shopping for the food more than I do cooking it.
