Hello there!

I love books, and I hope you do too! I have a BA in English and Creative Writing. I own too many books – and not enough bookshelves to hold them. In my spare time, I maintain this website as an independent blog! My reviews contain my honest, personal opinions.

I mostly review YA novels on this site. A variety of genres is included: YA fantasy, YA adventure, YA contemporary fiction, YA dystopian, etc. Some of my favorite authors are: Sabaa Tahir, Marie Lu, Meagan Spooner, Amie Kaufman, A. G. Howard, Alwyn Hamilton, Renee Ahdieh, Stephanie Garber, and Kasie West.

Feel free to leave considerate opinions in the comment sections. I’d be happy to hear other people’s thoughts about the books. I want all book-lovers to feel included in the reading community. Now, browse around and enjoy!
