Hello all! My name is Emily and I am 17-years-old. My passion for books started when I was in middle school and since then they have been a major part of my life. Any one of my friends and family will tell you they always see me with a book in my hand. When I am not obsessing over fictional characters (especially Will Herondale), I like to hang out with friends and watch my favorite shows on Netflix. 

Top Five Favorite Books:
1. The Infernal Devices trilogy by Cassandra Clare
2. The A Court of Thorns and Roses trilogy by Sarah J. Maas
3. THE GREAT GATSBY by F. Scott Fitzgerald
4. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
5. WE WERE LIARS by E. Lockhart
