Hello everyone! I'm a 15-year-old teen, about to start my freshman year at high school. I spend an unhealthy amount of time reading, and I love immersing myself in any imaginary world or story. Besides reading, I binge-watch shows like "The Vampire Diaries," "Arrow," and "Castle," and I play soccer. My bookshelf is more sacred to me than most other things in my life, and I spend an overwhelming amount of my time fangirling. Anything Marvel is an immediate obsession of mine, and I can't wait for the new movies.

Young adult books are my favorite kind, and I love writing anything about books. I hope you enjoy my reviews, and have fun reading!!

Top Five Favorite Books:
1. The Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling
2. The Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan
3. The Shadowhunter Chronicles series by Cassandra Clare
4. The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
5. The Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flannagan
