My reading tastes vary widely! I listen to a lot of books on audio while I’m driving or working out. For audio books I tend to like very light, fast paced reading. Some of my go-to audio book authors are Janet Evanovich, Sophie Kinsella, Harlen Coben, David Sedaris, Chelsea Handler and Jen Lancaster.

Tell us about some of your favorite books and what you’d recommend, and what kind of books we’d find in your “library.”
My YA library is filled with contemporary fiction all stars like Sarah Dessen, Jenny Han, Sarah Mlynowski, Susane Colasanti, Maureen Johnson and E. Lockhart. In this past year, my two favorite YA books I read were both by debut authors. They were BEFORE I FALL by Lauren Oliver and ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by Stephanie Perkins.
My adult fiction library has a little bit of everything. I’m an avid supporter of chick lit or women’s fiction. Some of my favorite authors in this genre are Emily Giffin, Jennifer Weiner, Claire Cook, Allison Winn Scotch and more recently Sarah Pekkanen.
I find it interesting that most of my favorite adult novels all center on a young female protagonists. I think my heart is just drawn to those formative years 🙂 Some of these favorites include: MEMOIRS OF A GEISHA by Arthur Golden; MIDWIVES by Chris Bohjalian; SHE’S COME UNDONE by Wally Lamb; THE CENTER OF EVERYTHING by Laura Moriarity; THE KITE RUNNER by Khaled Hosseini and THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett
