About Me

Marisa Lee

When I started this blog, I was fourteen and had no idea what I was doing. Now, I'm 21 and still don't really know what I'm doing. What I do know is that I love YA, both reading it and writing it, and that's what this blog is going to be all about. There will be book reviews, top ten lists, writing posts, and pretty much anything and everything YA related. Expect giveaways too!

When I started this blog, I was living in a small town in Massachusetts. Today, I'm a student at NYU, where I am studying media & communications with a double minor in entertainment business and creative writing. Living in NYC is so inspiring, and I'm so thankful that I am studying something that I am passionate about and living my dream. Since moving here I have met Bradley Cooper, Gayle Forman, have been to a taping of Jimmy Fallon, and received a random act of kindness. So while this blog is mainly going to stick to the books, I also might include snip its of NYC and any moments that are particularly memorable to me.
