About Me

Me with Maggie Stiefvater during BEA 2011
About Casey:

I'm a 20-something English major trying to figure out life after graduation, and would love to work with books in some form or fashion. I don’t really remember how my love of reading started, but it's been a defining part of my personality for as long as I can remember. I'll try almost any genre, but I'm particularly fond of young adult (both speculative fiction and contemporary), and some middle grade and children's books (Percy Jackson, Harry Potter, The Giver, etc). You can see some of my favorite books here and books I particularly recommend here.

Aside from the book-related details, I like alternative, rock and British pop, but I'll listen to almost anything (except country). I'm a fan of British television (Doctor Who, Sherlock, Merlin) and the CW (TVD, Supernatural). I have a love/hate relationship with Glee. I have an adorable puppy that I love more than anything. I wish I could live at the beach. I'm a coffee addict. I like sleep, but I don't get much of it. I use a lot of sarcasm. My favorite color is green and I really like sunflowers. I think that's me in a nutshell.

About Brittany:

My name's Brittany and I'm currently searching for a way to get paid to read books after graduation. I'm majoring in English and really hoping I can trick some poor soul into giving me a job sometime after May 13th. My book obsession began when I was eight and I picked up my sister's copy of The Hobbit. As my mother likes to say, "a whole new world opened up" before me and I never looked back. I'll read just about anything that qualifies as "fiction," but I prefer scifi, or just fantasy in general. My favorite books are The Hobbit, Catch-22, and the Sword of Truth series.

Other fun facts: I'll listen to pretty much any type of music, but my favorite bands are Fall Out Boy and All Time Low. I love animals so much that I somehow managed to adopt an entire family of feral cats for my parents, and they're pretty much all we talk about. I have an addiction to reality television (particularly Wife Swap and Sister Wives, although Dance Moms Miami is quickly moving up the list). I like hearing other people's perspectives on life (hence the reality t.v. addiction). I also like staying up late, drinking frappuccinos, vigilantes, Mexican food, everything Irish, snow, going barefoot, Christmas lights, anddd adding letters to the ends of words. If you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them!!
