Books + bikes = my awesome nerdy librarian life!
You guys, I'm in the midst of reading such a great book. I can't write much here b/c I have to get back to reading it ASAP. It's Faithful Place by Tana French, which is this really complex Irish murder mystery. Totally unlike what I usually read, which is maybe why I'm compulsively reading it every chance I get. It's like a really good Irish episode of Law & Order.
(*Note: if you want to see what I usually read, friend me on Goodreads! Also check out my book podcast)
Anyway, here are some links you guys can read until such time as you can borrow a copy of this book from your local library (or buy a copy from your local independent bookseller!!)
