Hi. My name is Madison. Welcome to my library.
Madison's Library is where I share my thoughts about books I've read and my experiences as a librarian.
I am a teacher librarian who loves reading. I am fortunate to have worked in many school libraries as a teacher librarian, library assistant, and book hire coordinator. I am currently the Information Services Teacher Librarian at a secondary library in a P-12 school. I believe that reading is vital for learning and expanding our worldview, but I believe that, most importantly, reading is for enjoyment. Promoting books, face-to-face, through displays or via online marketing, is one of my favourite parts of librarianship - though hanging out with all those books is pretty cool too.

I predominately read young adult fiction. I love books with strong characters and heartfelt stories. Contemporary, fantasy, sci-fi and mystery-thrillers are my main genres of choice. I also love reading Christian fiction, again contemporary romance, historical and mystery-thrillers. In addition to these two main areas I enjoy a variety of children's books, picture books, new adult fiction, adult fiction and non-fiction. I love being able to read fantastic books and share my thoughts with other readers. I hope my book reviews and lists will help you find your next great read.
You can find more information about my reviews under Book Reviews.

I do consider unsolicited review requests, however to accept a review copy I must always ensure that I am a good fit for the book and that I have sufficient time to devote to both reading and reviewing the title. In most cases, if I am unable to accept the review copy it is because I am unable to fulfil those two criteria.
I am extremely grateful to authors and publishers who make available their precious works for professionals such as myself to review. This is why I am careful to only review books that suit my preferences to ensure that I am giving a fair and honest review.
