Book Match: Nissa N.

Nissa N.

Nissa’s reading tastes run from nonfiction adventures and history to historical fiction, mystery, and what she likes to call “slice of life” fiction.  The occasional gothic novel or natural history keeps life interesting!  A fan of tales both old and new, Nissa likes nothing better than diving into a book featuring strong, central characters and a narrative that keeps the pages turning. If the adventure is true or has a basis in fact, so much the better.  Many of her recommended reads are available in audio as well as print and electronic formats. Click on the images below to see some of her favorites.
