Hi there!

Since a young age I have been hooked on storytelling, I love to tell enticing, funny and haunting stories. I enjoy reading everything from fantasy, romance, horror, science-fiction, dystopian, myth, feminism and mystery. Although, I have a particular interest in young adult (and new adult) books in the genre of fantasy, feminism and dystopian.

I’m an alumna of National University of Ireland, Galway. I studied English, literature and publishing as I wanted a career that surrounded literature, namely, researching, reading, writing and editing. When I started college I had a burning desire to write – anything and everything – and what’s a better way to write than blogging about what you love? That’s why I decided to blog about books.

My posts will mainly feature young adult book reviews, both new releases and older titles. I also have a “blog” section where I plan to writing about all things YA, books, authors, reading and more.

I hope you enjoy reading my blog as much as I have enjoyed creating it!
