Living for the Books was created on July 8, 2012 and it features book reviews, discussion posts, and new releases with the occasional giveaway, interview, and blog tour. We mainly feature young adult books, with some middle grade, new adult, and adult books mixed in.

If you're interested in asking for a review request please read our review policies. If you would like to suggest a topic for discussion send us an email or comment on our Features page. Also don't hesitate to comment on any of the posts. It is always great to hear from our readers and it encourages us to keep blogging. 


I’m just the average book loving college student. I'm studying psychology with an interest in school psych. I've been blogging for awhile now, although it's kind of been off and on due to school. I have a tendency to binge watch entire TV series in a day or week (depending on how many seasons there are) or play video games for hours straight (Breath of the Wild has me addicted. It's problematic). I'm obsessed with makeup, specifically lipsticks. I absolutely love reading and it's one of my only addictions that's stayed with me over the years.

I really love meeting other book nerds, seeing what others are reading, and finding my next favorite book. 


I’m an English Major at Northeastern University, doing my best to manage academic reading with my love of YA! I'm also an International Film and Cultures minor and an East Asian Studies minor. I’m a total fangirl when it comes to books and numerous tv shows and movies (The 100, Star Wars The Clone Wars, and Marvel to name a few). I’m an aspiring publisher and hope that the exposure to books and authors I have now will help me along the way.

I started blogging at Love at First Write in 2013 because the people around me in my little hometown don’t read like I do. Besides, sharing my opinion online means I get to discuss with even more people about the books I’ve read. I've been a contributor to Living for the Books since March 2015 and I’m happy to be here!
