Jennie Minor

Metadata Librarian I

Jennie catalogs children’s and teen fiction, nonfiction, and audiobooks, as well as books by Canadian authors. She also adds author’s websites and juvenile book awards to NoveList, writes title read-alike recommendations for popular books, and updates the audiobook landing page every month to highlight forthcoming and award-winning audiobooks as well as create an interesting themed list of audiobooks to check out. 

Jennie has been a reader even before she could read -- her favorite pastime as a young child being creating her own stories to go with the wordless picture book, The Grey Lady and the Strawberry Snatcher, and she fell in love with the library the summer she checked out and read every single Agatha Christie novel they owned. She loves mysteries, psychological suspense, magical realism, food writing, and feminist literature, and dabbles in literary fiction, fantasy, horror stories, folklore, and fairy tales.  Jennie’s favorite characters are usually twisted, flawed, and unreliable, while her favorite novels often have a darkly humorous or deliciously disturbing tone. When she’s not reading, she’s picking up books that were knocked off bookshelves by her four cats (Murakami, Molière, Beatrice, and Oliver), cooking vegan food, running and practicing yoga, trying to find people to speak with in French or Dutch, and watching Portlandia.
