Hi! I’m Laura, I’m 17 and I live just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Reading and writing are two of my greatest passions in life, but I promise there are moments when I’m not curled up with a book or fervently typing away on my laptop. I also love to bake (I have the world’s biggest sweet-tooth), draw, guzzle coffee and smother my two cats with (probably unwanted) attention. I am admittedly somewhat addicted to Netflix, and --- although my TV sees less use during the school year --- I have a weekly Wednesday night date with CBS’s “Survivor” at eight o’clock sharp. I am incredibly thrilled to be a part of the Teen Board for a second year --- I truly believe that what Teenreads has to offer is unparalleled, and it is so rewarding to be a part of this community of YA literature enthusiasts. I hope that my reviews will help other bibliophiles find novels they, too, can highlight and dog-ear twice over and stories in which they find themselves utterly engrossed.
