Hi, I’m Melat! I’m 16-years-old and I love writing almost as much as I love reading. Some random facts about me include my love of Sour Patch Kids and my love of history and mythology. While I review books on YouTube, I also write political pieces for several independent outlets. I love fantasy novels with diverse casts, in fact, I love all books with diverse casts. As a woman of color, I analyze books through a specific lense, so watch for that in my reviews!

Top Five Favorite Books:
1. PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by Jane Austen
2. THE FINAL EMPIRE (Mistborn, #1) by Brandon Sanderson
3. SIX OF CROWS (Six of Crows, #1) by Leigh Bardugo
4. A GATHERING OF SHADOWS (Shades of Magic, #2) by V.E. Schwab
5. THE LIGHTNING THIEF (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, #1) by Rick Riordan

After battling a supernatural sleeping sickness that early claimed two of their own, the Diviners have had enough of lies. They're more determined than ever to uncover the mystery behind their extraordinary powers, even as they face off against an all-new terror. Out on Ward's Island, far from the city's bustle, sits a mental hospital haunted by the lost souls of people long forgotten --- ghosts who have unusual and dangerous ties to the man in the stovepipe hat, also known as the King of Crows.
