Author has written 5 stories for Sherlock.
I'm 25 and happily married. I love dogs and am allergic to cats. I love to read, mainly British period pieces. (Jane Austen or Sherlock Holmes, anyone?)
I run the library at an elementary school and sometimes I think I could live in one (a library - not an elementary school!).
I am a Christian and I believe that everything happens for a reason and that all things work together for good for those who love God, and that sometimes, it's not for our own personal good - it's for the good of the bigger picture.
I'm a hopeless romantic.
I love kids.
I've lurked here for a while and decided to try my hand at it all.
Books I've Loved (and would recommend to anyone):
1. The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater (This is number one for a reason - please, please read this, and if you do, PM me so we can talk about it. Because I love it.)
2. The Help by Kathryn Stockett
3. The Book Thief by Markus Zusak (I cried for two days after this one, I think...)
4. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
5. Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte
6. The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner
7. Princess Academy and Palace of Stone by Shannon Hale (Don't let the cheesy title dissuade you - it's a beautifully written story)
8. The Mysterious Benedict Society trilogy by Trenton Lee Stewart
9. Lily's Crossing by Patricia Reilly Giff
10. Les Miserables by Victor Hugo
11. Matilda by Roald Dahl
12. Anything else by Roald Dahl
13. Belle Prater's Boy and The Search for Belle Prater by Ruth White
14. Summer of My German Soldier by Bette Greene
15. This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen (It's a children's picture book, but it's funny and fabulous. The 4th graders at my school turned it into a play. On their own time. It's that awesome.)
And of course there are many more awesome books in the world, too many to count. If you have any book recommendations, especially WWII historical fiction, or British period pieces, or quirky children's stories, I'd love to hear them. :)
