My name is Devon and I adore young adult Literature. YA has been my go to genre since I was 14 years old; this is due to the fact that YA is a genre that is constantly growing and adapting. This genre plays host to some of the most ambitious and intriguing concepts in modern literature. Some examples include my personal favourite series, A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E.Schwab, Claudia Gray’s Firebird trilogy, and Rick Riordan’s entire collection of mythology inspired stories. One day, I hope to create my own YA novel, one just as ambitious and amazing.
This blog is where I discuss my love of YA, by reviewing recent reads, sharing thoughts on current reads, sharing lists of my most anticipated YA releases yet to come, and much much more. Alongside this, I sometimes discuss life in its many ways; whether it be expressing my utter fascination with a musical movie, – *cough* La La Land – sharing links to topics I have discussed on other sites, or declaring my love of video games – all while struggling to type because of a hand cramp I got from 7 straight hours playing Horizon Zero Dawn.
After over a year of blogging, I am still finding my feet. Every now and then, I like to delve deep, discussing topics of a less light-hearted nature, such as mental health, sexuality, and diversity, both in life and literature.
