|Me being the geek that I am :)|
I am passionate about YA literature and read anything and everything I can get my hands on. I enjoy most genres. My top three (in no particular order) are historical fiction, realistic fiction, and paranormal fiction. My favorite authors include John Green, Holly Black, Jane Austen, Sarah Rees Brennan, Neil Gaiman, Tamora Pierce, Ally Carter, Suzanne Collins, Kristen Cashore and many, many more.
I have my teaching degree from a University of Wisconsin school (not Madison) and am certified to teach grades one through eight. My minor was in Library Media studies. I am working on my masters and professional license in this. I started a book blog because I love young adult literature and I want to promote the authors who write it and their books. I think that they are an amazing group of people who do amazing things. Many of my favorite authors are not exactly at the middle school level. I wanted a broader audience to share my love for ya lit and to discuss it :) I'm happy to hear from you. Email me at heidi at yabibliophile dot com or find me on twitter @hmz1505!
