Hello there! I'm Olivia, I am 17-years-old and I obviously love to read. I've had an extreme love for reading for as long as I can remember. Just being in the presence of a book automatically brightens my mood! When I'm not reading I can usually be found re-watching some of my all-time favorite movies,(Dazed and Confused, Stuck in Love, Pump Up the Volume, Me and Earl and The Dying Girl...the list is seemingly endless --- like my TBR!), listening to music or begging someone to drive me 25 minutes into town just so I can have a milkshake. I'm so excited to be able to help contribute to Teenreads and hopefully write reviews that you will find both informative and fun!

Top Five Favorite Books:
1. THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER by Stephen Chbosky
2. ELEANOR & PARK by Rainbow Rowell
3. THE BELL JAR by Sylvia Plath
4. LITTLE WOMEN by Louisa May Alcott
5. ME AND EARL AND THE DYING GIRL by Jesse Andrews

Legend is correct that Mary Shelley began penning FRANKENSTIEN in answer to a dare to write a ghost story. What most people don't know, however, is that by age 19, she had been disowned by her family, was living in scandal with a married man, and had lost her baby. Mary poured her grief, pain and passion into the powerful book still revered two hundred years later, and in MARY'S MONSTER, author/illustrator Lita Judge has poured her own passion into a gorgeous book that pays tribute to the life of this incredible author.

Trudchen grew up hearing Odette’s stories of their monster-slaying mother and a magician’s curse. But now that Tru’s older, she’s starting to wonder if her older sister’s tales were just comforting lies, especially because there’s nothing fantastic about her own life --- permanently disabled and in constant pain from childhood polio. In 1909, after a two-year absence, Od reappears with a suitcase supposedly full of weapons and a promise to rescue Tru from the monsters on their way to attack her. But it’s Od who seems haunted by something.
