Amanda enjoys reading young adult novels with fiercely independent and whip-smart heroines. The best fantasy novel she has read in years is _[Uprooted](/catalog/work/60172 "Uprooted")_ by Naomi Novik. Otherwise, she likes to read non-fiction titles and pretend to read productivity books cover to cover. She's also one of our romance readers (Regency era only, please).
I dabble here and there, but you can usually find me buried in business or cultural non-fiction. Power Women as protagonists keeps me turning pages and I usually read a graphic novel or something YA in between the heavy-hitters. Hand me anything set in Korea and I’m a happy gal.
I enjoy novels that have strong character development with good plots, as well as non-fiction books-history,cooking/baking/self-help and memoirs. I always like to read in the evening before bed, as well as listen to audio books throughout the day as I drive and walk around town!
