Hi friends, my name is Quinn! You may know me as @theromanticace on the good ol’ Bookstagram (or FKA @qsreads), or maybe not at all, but I’m happy you’re here!

I started this lil’ blog because I love to talk about books- so much so, I’m a Teen Services and Adult Fiction Librarian (and yes, before you ask, it really is a dream job). And because I don’t talk about books enough on the clock, I decided to add another bookish hobby to my retinue!

Just other duties as assigned, NBD. Is it clear enough that I love what I do???

By my username, you might guess that yes, I’m asexual and yes, I love romance. Part of my mission in both my blog and my bookstagram is to spread awareness about what asexuality is and isn’t (at least in my experience), but also to gush about romance and HEAs. You’ll see a lot of romance here, but you’ll also see A LOT of young adult fiction and graphic novels/manga – both of which I purchase for in my library.

I love receiving and reviewing advanced reader copies (e-copies and physical copies), and love promoting books through promos and tours. I have been a part of the #bookstagram community since January 2019 and I am very active there, and of course I love talking up books through word of mouth at the library. If you are interested in sending ARCs or would like help with promoting an upcoming book, please reach out to me on my Instagram or by emailing me here.
