About

Hi, I’m Madeline (or Miss Maddie, if you’re under age ten). I’m a librarian who specializes in books for children and teens. I can usually be found reading (on the couch, while on a run, while at a hockey game) or poring over picture book illustrations. It is my opinion that YA fiction is far superior to adult fiction. It is also my opinion that at least one picture book should be read aloud at any adult gathering.

Other things I love, besides books: my partner H, my pit bull Willow, my queer family, running, biking, inline skating, traveling, talk therapy, miniature food, cross stitch, tea, craft beer, the Midwest, sad/moody movies,Β The Office, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and tattoos.

This is my arm.

Oh, and if you like, you can follow me on Goodreads.Β I read a lot more than I review.

  1. Love your about page! I saw the film for Matilda when I was younger and loved it, I remember her going on about Moby Dick quite a lot lol. Shaming bookworms everywhere I have yet to read the book though! Is it very similar to the film?

    Thanks for following my blog. πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks! Yes, the book is similar to the movie. Both are fantastic, in my opinion. πŸ™‚ I love in the movie when Matilda’s dad says, “What is this crap?” And Matilda says, “It’s not crap, Daddy. It’s lovely. It’s called Moby Dick by Herman Melville.” And her dad says, “Moby what?!”

      1. Ohh yeah I’d forgotten all about that! I think I need to re-watch it actually, although I’m sure that scene with the cake will still make me shiver. :S

  2. Hi Madeline. I found you via a comment on Naz’s blog and it looks like we read some of the same categories and also that you are a Wisconsin librarian too! I review a lot of children’s and middle grade books as well as some YA and adult books and am looking forward to reading your reviews.
