Hello! My name is Naomi and I’m a book reviewer and librarian living in southern Ontario. I’m married to an English teacher and our two young children like stories as much as we do. After the kids go to bed, I can usually be found on the couch with a good book and a cup of tea. I prefer to read literary and well-written contemporary fiction with a strong focus on character development or setting, and I love quirky writing. Favourite authors include Jessica Grant, Penelope Lively, Carol Shields, Helen Simonsen, Miriam Toews, Joanna Trollope and Jane Urquhart. Sometimes I read non-fiction, and when I do, it tends to reflect my interests in words, people, and the world we live in. On Thursdays, I share the best of what I have been reading, and periodically I post about other things, usually relating to home and family. I always welcome comments and will respond within a day or two.
