Introduction I'm Emily and I started this blog to share my love of children's and young adult fiction with my community. I try to provide my readers with recommendations for books that they will enjoy and expand horizons. This blog is done in my spare time. I have been married since December 2007 to my handsome husband. Our daughter Abigail was born in March 2010. We also have a beagle named Tonks. Please feel free to contact me at anytime with recommendations and comments.
