About Amanda

I am a bibliophile, MLIS student, library paraprofessional, mother, and wife from Northeast Georgia.

I’ve blogged for many years on many things bookish and not. Last year I decided to end blogging because of time constraints and upheaval in my personal life. I’ve missed blogging about my reading and decided to resurrect Fig and Thistle to function as a book blog.

Here is what you will find at Fig and Thistle:

  • ravings over poetry
  • book reviews
  • bookish hauls
  • pictures of books
  • generally bookish chatter

I’m a mom, a full-time employee, and in graduate school. There may be chunks of time where I am missing in action, but I am happy to have a place to gather with my fellow book lovers.
