Have you ever wondered what librarians do when they aren’t working? The answer may not surprise you; they read books. Loads of them. Piles. Stacks as big as an elephant. I’ve recently had the pleasure of collaborating with two such voracious librarians at The Library Ladies.
Kate also has some interesting insight into some psychological studies. She says,
“During my time studying psychology in my high school and college careers, there were a number of case studies that freaked me out. Be it because of ethical problems (The Milgram Experiment), animal cruelty (Harlow Monkey Experiment), or just flat out human terribleness (The Stanford Prison Experiment), many studies have told us a lot, but have ridiculous messed up connotations. But one that seems perfect for a horror story is the Rosenhan Experiment, where non-mentally ill people faked symptoms to get inside mental institutions… and then found it pretty near impossible to get out, even when they stopped reporting symptoms.”
And knowing info like that makes her a great reviewer.
You should pop over and check out their site. They write really nuanced reviews about young adult fiction, thrillers, graphic novels, and more! (And they aren’t afraid to tell you when a book is terrible, which I respect.)
