SCPL Teens has gotten a lot of new faces this summer! Over the next few weeks, we'll be featuring them here so you'll know who to look for when you need a recommendation for your next awesome teen read.
Today, meet AJ of the Inman library!
HOMETOWN: Inman, SC
THEN WHAT: I graduated from USC Upstate with a degree in History. I started working as a page in 2009 and have worked my way up.
FAMILY: My Dad is about to retire from Duke Energy and my Mom is a teacher for Spartanburg County. I am an aunt; my older sister has two kids.
HOBBIES: Well of course I love reading! It is one of my absolute favorite things to do. I also enjoy traveling as much as possible.
FAVORITE QUOTE: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.” - Dr. Seuss.
FAVORITE TEEN BOOKS: I have too many favorite teen books to choose from. I love Delirium by Lauren Oliver, Matched by Ally Condie and the Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare. Of course the Harry Potter books are among some of my favorites.
FAVORITE NON-TEEN BOOKS: I love anything by Cathy Lamb. Most of her books are very funny except there is one of her books called Henry’s Sisters that will make you cry. So be careful about that one.
RECENTLY READ: I am almost finished with a book called Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson This book is about Peter Pan but it is from Tinker Bell point of view. The interesting point about Tinker Bell is that she has been following Tiger Lilly around instead of Peter Pan.
