Teen Board Member

Woodstock, Georgia

I am a high school junior and enthusiastic reader. I devote time to reading and reviewing on Teenreads because I would not want to do anything else. I enjoy analyzing and offering my opinion of books to other readers. I read, write, meet authors and interact with the reading community in my spare time. When not reading, I can be found studying, volunteering at my library or playing my flute.

Top Five Favorite Books:

  1. A COURT OF MIST AND FURY by Sarah J. Maas
  2. THE UPSIDE OF UNREQUITED by Becky Albertalli
  3. THE WRATH AND THE DAWN by Renee Ahdieh
  4. AND I DARKEN by Kiersten White
  5. MY LADY JANE by Cynthia Hand and Brody Ashton
