Katherine - Assistant Book Buyer
Katherine is well versed in a range of book genres, having grown up visiting her local bookstore as a child. When she was young, she adored Frog Goes to Dinner by Mercer Mayer, and the Harry Potter series as she matured. Having revealed that, if Katherine were a book genre, she'd be young adult fantasy.
In her own fantasy world, Katherine would spend her reading time in London with toast and a cup of coffee. She'd daydream of what her life would be like if she were Kelady of Mindelan from Tamora Pierce's Protector of the Small series, or Katsa from Kristin Cashore's Graceling Realm books.
Along with reading, Katherine enjoys movies, playing games, and a walk or hike.
