When she isn’t doing historical research in Greece, Alexandra hunts for dragons, the long lost unicorn, and dreams of Belle’s Library. She writes on Wattpad and her PNR YA trilogy “Three Ghosts for Anastasia” has been published on the Tapas app. She loves characters who have to face high stakes, fantasy that can sweep you off your feet, magical creatures of all kinds and of romance that makes her swoon and beg for the real-life version of it. Since 2013 she owns Milky Way of Books. She is a proud Hufflepuff, loves chocolate and raving about mythology. Some of her favorite authors include Jennifer Armentrout, Sarah J. Maas, Karina Halle, and Margaret Rogerson.
Current college student who is an English literature major (dying over the amount of essays I have to write but we love it). Colorado native who loves to explore the world in and outside of books, also loves to fangirl over t.v. shows and book characters on the daily.
Hi everyone !!! I am JoJo ( virtual hugs), I am so excited to post about all the things. But before I start to babble, I love books, blogging, fictional boyfriends lol, crafting, the colour pink and a very long list of other things lol. I am so pumped to share all my thoughts with you all.
Hi! I’m Diana and I’m a proud Filipina! I’ve been reading since I was twelve and I’d probably.. oh who am I kidding? I’ll most assuredly still be reading when I’m 90. (Fingers crossed for good eyesight) I have a Bachelor’s that has nothing to do with reading, blogging or fangirling. Reading changed my life and I’m so happy to be a part of this wonderful community.
My name’s Ava, and I’m an avid reader. YA is my sweet spot, but I’ll never pass up the opportunity to devour a good book. Reading aside, I can be found purchasing more coffee mugs than any human being has the right to own, drinking more coffee than is socially acceptable (in said mugs), rewatching 30 Rock, and writing – sometimes reviews, sometimes novels, sometimes essays, and sometimes rant posts about my favorite ships (it’s been eight years and I’ll still never be over the potential Klaroline had). I’m currently a student seeking an English degree, and after that I’m not really sure where I’ll end up, but I’m sure I’ll be happy as long as there are books. And coffee.
Hey, I’m Skye! Currently, I’m a full-time college student with a slight obsession with books 😉 I’m fluent in the language of sarcasm, so my kryptonite in any book is great witty banter. I’m also a certified fangirl and avid Netflix watcher.
She/Her. I am a writer from Chicago. When I’m not reading romance books, I’m imagining the day I’ll have one of my own published. I have way too many interests to keep you entertained enough to finish this bio. But just for fun, I like hiking and watching way too much tv. Also (because it wouldn’t be a true bio without this): Ravenclaw.
“Asis is a Mexican girl whose life changed at the age of six when her father read her the first chapter of Harry Potter. Ever since that night, the book world sucked her in and she’s never been seen amongst mortals again.” I am a Translator-Interpreter, with a passion for languages and an imagination that works 24/7. I’m a romantic at heart, and my favorite genre is fantasy. I’m incredibly obsessive towards anything I like, I can’t just “like” something, I always end up obsessed with it. I love to play the piano and sing and one day I’ll get over my hypersensitivity to cold and live in Scotland. Stories are a refuge for me and they’ve always been, they’ve been a huge help with my anxiety disorder and they are also the one thing that makes me feel, that makes me interact and REALLY live. Stories can change everything.
Hi there! My name is Victoria, and I am a 25-year-old Ravenclaw from the Phoenix, AZ area! For as long as I can remember, I’ve always lost myself in the imaginative worlds that books have offered me, and I have delighted in dragging friends and family members along for the ride! I cannot wait to share my thoughts and opinions with everyone, and I look forward to engaging with you all, doing what I’m sure we all love to do best – reading and discussing books!
Katie is a publishing professional whose introduction to the industry came from blogging about young adult and romance books in 2013. She has is on the quest to find the perfect donut. Books in the morning, books in the evening, books at supper time.
Rachel (@sunflowerreads) can usually found stuffing at least one book into her bag and asking “but we’re getting food after this, right?” Future NYT Bestselling Author or at the very least her mom will like it. Lover of sunflowers, traveling and one very demanding orange cat named Hamilton.
I have been pulling all-nighters to read since I was in middle school, and nothing has changed since. My love of reading turned into a love for writing and I now have my dream job — being a writer. I also get to wear pajamas to work, which is a pretty nice perk. I love Starbuck’s tea, organizing, the ocean, and buying too many purses and books. Is there such a thing as too many purses or books? I have two energetic toddlers at home so I mostly read to stay sane. While I genuinely enjoy a variety of genres, I enjoy getting lost in the paranormal and fantasy world and nothing can melt my heart faster than a small-town romance.
Books are such a magical experience for me, and I adore curling up with them on any given day— especially rainy days. I am married with one little boy, Jax. My husband is a farmer, so life can be incredibly unpredictable for us, just like in the books ♥️
Sita never knows what to say for these things, and would rather talk books than about herself. She’s fairly boring and can usually be found camped out on the couch with a book, a pot of tea, and Netflix on in the background. Sita likes to read books that are swoony, and sweet. And it doesn’t matter the genre, if there are threads of humour through it she’ll love it. She’s loving the growth of strong diverse characters and is looking forward to reading more of them. Preferred Genres: LGBTQ+ Paranormal Sports . . . especially Ice Hockey. It’s my jam. Science Fiction and Fantasy. Contemporary Any sort of Romance really . . . I’ll even dabble in the unconventional, taboo realm too.
Hi! I’m Lisa. I’m twenty-two, a college student and a book lover. I spend every free minute, and most of my lectures, reading all kinds of books, which is how I ended up here. While I particularly enjoy books of the young and new adult variety, I also love historical fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, paranormal, all things romance, and one or the other classic as well. If I’m not reading, I’m either working, sleeping, binge-watching my newest obsession on Netflix, or on my way to Starbucks, to satisfy my slight caffeine addiction.

Marie loves finding strangers reading her favorite books, it truly seems like the books are recommending people as potential friends. By day she works in healthcare technology product marketing, but can always be found amongst the streets of Boston with a book or her Kindle in hand. Reading is one of her greatest passions and she has an appreciation for all genres – favorites include business non-fiction, contemporary, historical fiction, fantasy, and science fiction. Since most strangers frown upon being interrupted reading their book, and if it’s one of Marie’s favorites they’re probably super absorbed into it, she enjoys supporting her local bookish community and writing reviews and making recommendations to those who are looking to explore books that might be a bit out of their comfort zone.
As a motocross and corporate event photographer Stephanie started a photography project to find her creative eye again. As an avid reader she stumbled across the wonderful community of bookstagram and in 2016 The.Bookish.Photog was born from a passion of taking pictures and a love of reading. Working in the fast-paced corporate world doesn’t leave much time to sit and relax with a book so she is always on the go with an audiobook and her camera. Steph enjoys getting out of the real world and losing herself in anything fantasy, she is also a lover of historical fiction and a good hate-to-love trope. Collector of Book Beaus and lover of Harry Potter, Outlander and anything by Jay Kristoff or Leigh Bardugo.

I’m a 30-something coffee addict, I mean Math Instructor/Assistant who spends every spare moment reading books, talking about books, and photographing books (see my Instagram)! If I’m not reading, I’m probably cuddling or playing with my furbabies, who often make goofy appearances in my IG stories (Boxers are the biggest goons).
I struggled with pretty severe dyslexia growing up, so I didn’t really start to enjoy reading until well into my twenties. Once I found my groove and more than just a handful of authors that I was willing to try, I started devouring books and haven’t stopped. If you had asked me 10 years ago if I would love reading as much as I do now, I would probably have laughed in your face. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would (or even could) read over 100 books a year or become a book blogger/reviewer.
My all-time favorite Fandom is Harry Potter and it’s the series that sparked my love of reading. Some of my other favorites include: Throne of Glass series, The Grishaverse, The Vampire Academy/Bloodlines series, The Illuminate Files, The World of Caraval, Air Awakens, The Falling Kingdom series, Furyborn, … Okay, I’ll stop now, but YA Fantasy is my jam!
