Hi! I’m Mikala. I’m an avid reader and movie (and sometimes tv show) watcher. I tend to read young adult or children’s books and love anything that involves a badass lady (or multiple — I’ll take what I can get). I’m also a bookseller, so I’m all about recommending books to fellow readers, old and young alike. I have a BA in English Literature and Spanish language and an MA in Children’s Literature and have written two theses involving feminism in children’s literature so I like to think I know my stuff.
