About

About Me:

Hello! I am 1st year Publishing Grad student, marching forward toward a career in Children’s Literature. In what capacity, I am as yet undecided although I am leaning towards Editorial. I have no money, I am a writer, and as you can imagine…I am starving. I read a lot of adult and YA fantasy, though I am attempting to branch out in my interests through this blog. I just don’t know where to start. That is where you guys come in. See that tab up top. The one that says recommend a book. I want you click that, and then I want you to post. Come on, it will be fun. I’ll sing your praises all over this blog if I like your recommendation. I may just sing your praises all over this blog if I like your personality.

My favorite authors on the adult side include: Robert Jordan, Sara Douglass, L.E. Modesit, Jennifer Fallon, Annie Dillard, and Michael Chabon. As for YA they are: Diane Wynne Jones, Tamora Pierce, and Jean Craighead George.

I also sound really boring according this. I’m not! I promise! I had a Star Wars Christmas tree once! That’s got to count for something, right?

About The Blog:

This is primarily a YA review blog. I’ll also be posting news and goodies from the book world that I feel are just too awesome for you all to not know about. You’ll have to bare with me for a little while. I have no money and a backlog of books on my shelf that I’ve neglected. You will have probably heard or read a lot of them, but if you haven’t then perhaps I will be a champion of the backlist. In a few months my financial situation will have changed. I’m so busy now adjusting to life in NYC, having only recently moved. I moved from Georgia, mind you. If I dissapear for a week it is likely because I have frozen to death. I’m not kidding.

I will be reviewing teen fiction for the most part; however, I’m not going to forget about picture books. After all, today’s rugrat is tomorrow’s teen reader. I plan on devoting a couple of weeks each publishing season to reviewing new picture books. Also in the later end of November I’ll be pushing a few picture books for the holidays.

November is almost here, and perhaps a few of you know about NaNoWriMo. For those of you that don’t, November is National Novel Writing Month. I’ll be posting a lot about that this coming month, and possibly even featuring some excerpts of other YA novelists.
