Hi, I’m Melissa. Welcome to my favorite place to discuss books!
I’m an Alabama native living in North Carolina. By day, I’m a children’s librarian, and the rest of my free time is filled with yoga, cooking, reading, and the eternal campaign against the dirty dishes. I’m married to a business guy who loves all things ice hockey and Jason Bourne.
I want Big Dipper Books to be a resource on your book journey.
We’re all busy, and let’s be honest: who really wants to slog through another boring, lackluster book? I’ve got your back. This blog is primarily focused on backlist books rather than hot, upcoming titles. I’ve tried doing the Advanced Reader’s Copy thing, and I just don’t enjoy it—I don’t like the pressure of reading quickly and writing a big review. I’ll help you find great books that don’t have a long waitlist list at the library. Be prepared: I may occasionally detour into children’s librarian land.
So grab a cozy blanket, pour yourself some tea, and and let’s talk books.
Disclaimer: In my posts, you will find links to books and other bookish items I recommend. These may contain affiliate links. That means that if you purchase an item using the link from my website, I get a small commission. Thanks in advance for supporting the review work I’m doing here!
If you want to reach out, just say hello! I’d love to chat.
My faith is the fabric of who I am. It influences everything I do—especially reading.
