Kealey, what's your role here at Maria's Bookshop? 

I've been a Bookseller since August 2023!

What's your favorite thing about being a Bookseller?

My favorite thing about my role is getting to interact with people who share my love of books and getting to talk book recommendations. And of course, all of the puppies/nuggets!

What’re your go-to genres? 

Fiction. Horror. True Crime.

What’re you reading right now?

Right now I'm reading Lessons in Chemistry by Bonnie Garmus.

What do you eat when you read? 

I believe Cheez-its are the only acceptable food to eat while reading (not sponsored).

Best Drink to Sip While Reading: 

Definitely tea or apple cider.

Describe your ideal place to read: 

In a hammock, very deep in the woods.

Who's someone you've read about with whom you want to be best buds? 

Lucy from The House in the Cerulean Sea by TJ Klune.

What was your favorite book from childhood? 

Savvy by Ingrid Law.

What's the best book recommendation you've received?
