Natalia

Natalia (she/they) has been selling books at The American Book Center since 2018. She’s the buyer for the Fiction and Romance section, and on occasion you can find her at the Special Orders department, processing web orders. She’s an avid reader of mostly speculative fiction, young adult and contemporary romance novels; especially if they’re LGBTQIA+ – themed.  Besides having her nose in a book, she loves to cook, watch movies, learn a new language, or practice a hip-hop routine. She loves reading because books are a source of inspiration, recognition, and escapism for her; giving her the ability to travel through worlds far different from her own.
