This journal will contain books recommended by dawnrune, a Children's Librarian who sometimes finds herself unable to resist checking out a book or three after a long day of shelving. Wanting to convey the joy of the books I read in some way, I have created this journal to blather about awesome reads and maybe, just maybe, convince you that they are worth your time as well.

Thus readableshey. Whoo!

WHAT KIND OF BOOKS WILL I BE RECCING?

MOST OF THE TIME:

-- Children's fiction, usually the kinds of things fit for 9+ year olds.
-- Young Adult fiction, not as much of this, but if I find good stuff (and I sometimes do) then I will.
-- Self-Help/Health non-fiction, because I find these kinds of books fascinating and uplifting.
-- Manga/Graphic Novels, if it weren't for this stuff I wouldn't be so into books in the first place.

SOME OF THE TIME:

-- Adult fiction, which I sometimes take a gander into. I generally don't find these to be as enjoyable as children's books, but sometimes I find a diamond in the rough.
-- Parenting/Teaching non-fiction, where I'm not yet a parent, nor teacher, I find that it's never too early to start my research. I've learned a lot from these nifty little books.
-- Picture books/easy readers, things for little, little ones. I have a few adorable ones I'd be willing to share.
-- Children's/Young Adult Non-fiction, because there's nothing like non-fiction that puts things in simple words, as opposed to the pages of worthless drivel you may encounter in an encyclopedia. Then there's plenty of other cool stuff you'd never think to find in non-fiction!

RARELY

-- Magazines
-- Reference materials (they don't circulate in the library. At least no library I've ever been to.)
-- Poetry
-- Fanfiction, I will create one master post for fanfiction recs and update it every so often. The reason I'm sticking fanfiction in here at all is because I think it's also a valid, terrific goldmine of readables, granted you know how to find the good stuff. Best way to find good stuff is via rec posts. ;D

GENRES!! WHAT GENRES DO YOU READ?!

-- I'm big on Fantasy! Especially love me some mermaids, and magicians.
-- I love action/adventure.
-- I REALLY love time travel stories, and stuff with aliens/robots/etc. Sci-fi!
-- Spiritual things are pretty nifty, as long as they aren't preachy.
-- Books on teen romance, and sexuality can be interesting.
-- I love cute things. I cannot tell a lie.
-- Sometimes I can dig a horror. Steven King FTW!
-- Classic literature.
-- Anything concerning good health.
-- Friendship.
-- Romance is OK, granted the characters aren't cardboard cutouts of others you see in 75486928345762894756982754682475692843756829347651 other romance novels.
-- Books on writing.

The list will grow as my horizons broaden.
