meI’m just a girl who loves books, believes libraries are gateways to other universes, and wants to find a place in this world doing what she loves: reading. I’m 29 and married to the most amazing guy in the universe. We have an adorable son who fills our lives with so much joy each day. :]

The name of this blog comes from a line from the book A Great and Terrible Beauty by Libba Bray. “Everyone had fallen into a twilight sleep. Everyone except me.” I don’t know what it was about the line (I mean, Gemma was describing the atmosphere of the carriage ride home after an afternoon out for the girls), but for some reason it struck something deep inside me when I read it. I immediately knew it was the perfect name for a website…so I registered it. And we’ve lived happily ever after ever since. :D

When I step into this library, I cannot understand why I ever step out of it.

Behind the Curtain

Hi. My name is Shannon and I like books. And photography. And video games. I use this space to talk about books and particpate in badassery. You can read a bit more about my awesomeness and how Twilight Sleep came to be (the name has absolutely NOTHING to do with the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer, contrary to popular belief) on the about page. :]
