Staff Picks - Joseline

   
Born and raised in the Bay Area, I have been a reader for as long as I can remember. If you want to see my face light up then ask me about my favorite books.
 
My favorite genres include but are not limited to Young Adult, Literary Fiction, Fantasy, Science Fiction, Romance, and Graphic Novels. I am always willing to read something new and different.
 
Besides a love of books, I also have a love of hockey. While I can’t skate, I do watch a lot of games, and you can always catch me reading during commercials breaks.

Being Mexican-American, this book is very special to me. I finally felt seen and heard through Sanchez’s voice. It is a book about finding your identity when you come from two different worlds and you feel like you don’t belong in either. --Joseline

Moshfegh writes honest, yet disturbing depictions of people at their worst. These stories get uncomfortable, the characters are unlikable and delusional, but each story is utterly fascinating and relatable. --Joseline
