What I’m reading and what I’ve read…

As Stephen King says in his book On Writing:

If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others:
Read a lot and write a lot.

Being an avid reader, my virtual and actual to-read bookshelves are always piled high, so there’s plenty to keep me going.

Most of my book reviews appear on the Blog on my main website, but over here I’ll be reviewing only books for middlegrade, teen and YA readers.

If you’re an author or publisher interested in requesting a review, check out my submissions procedure, though bear in mind I’m not adding any new books to my reviewing list for the foreseeable future.

Below, you’ll find the books I’ll be reading shortly, as well as those I’ve read and reviewed. If I didn’t like them, or they were poorly written, then no review.
