I love getting to know and rooting for flawed, complex and likeable characters. I enjoy humour, like Terry Fallis’s writing, as well as a strong sense of place, like Louise Penny’s Three Pines. Fantasy, science fiction, contemporary romance and contemporary literature are my current favourites, and every once in a while I like mystery or historical fiction. While I mostly read fiction, I do pick up the occasional memoir or book about ecology or animals. During the pandemic I’ve gotten hooked on audiobooks and I love to listen while I walk my dog.
I’m also fan of picture books. There are so many charming, ingenious and gorgeous picture books! I especially like funny ones with expressive illustrations.
