Welcome to my little book haven

I guess this should be my introductory post, which sounds so incredibly boring...but here goes.  I LOVE books!!  Really that's all you need to know.  Well...maybe I should elaborate a little bit.  I used to lead a book club that I absolutely adored.  A "wine and words" book know, the kind where your husband jokes that you don't actually READ the books, it's just an excuse to sit around with your girlfriends, drink copious amounts of vodka enhanced libations, and bullshit about what's going on in your life. And we really lived up to that reputation...BUT in between the laughter and alcohol, we actually DID discuss what we were reading.  The conversations we had about our selections were varied, nuanced and full of the life experiences that came to mind during our evenings spent flipping pages when we should've been sleeping.  Unfortunately most of my girls have since moved out of the of those parts of military life that you never quite get used to.  So, here I am.  Wine and words is too high brow for me, really.  Tomes and Tequila is a little more my style.  My plan (if you can call it that) is to review books as I read them, and hopefully have some dialogue with like-minded bibliophiles.  I warn you...I am no writer.  I can't even text without at least 3 exclamation points and an emoji...but I do have a lot of info floating around in my brain.  I find my retention blows, so I'm hopeful that in writing about the books I'm reading, I'll remember things a bit better...if for nothing other than having more recommendations at my disposal during my "Library Job".  Oh yeah, I work at a library.  No masters degree here, but I am asked daily "so, what should I read?".  And please don't be scared away if I throw a kids book in the mix every now and again.  I lead a preschool Story Time 2-3 times a month...and every once in awhile one of those books just blows my mind.  I once spent at least 45 minutes telling my friends about the book Burger Boy (it's by Alan Durant.  If you haven't read it, and you still have little ones at home, check it out!!!).  I'll try my best to post often...and to not bore you to death.  I want this to be a fun place. And who am I kidding, if you're reading this chances are we have shared a drink together. 
So once again, welcome to my little book haven.  I hope if we're not friends yet, we get to be.  And if you have a book you want me to check out, shoot me a line!
