About This Blog

Hello there, fellow book lovers! I'm Katie, and as you've probably guessed, I love to read. I'll read just about anything, but Young Adult books are my passion.

I used to despise reading when I was younger. No, really, I did. It was only when I was introduced to Harry Potter that I fell in love with reading. When I hit my mid-teens, I discovered the fabulous Meg Cabot, and that’s when I really fell into the world of YA.
When I was younger, none of my friends enjoyed reading as I did, so I went looking for other ways to share my book-related thoughts. I started this blog in January 2011 after doing a review for a teen magazine. Setting up The Queen of Teen Fiction has helped me to share my book love with other fiction fanatics, and meet some amazing new people!

I am a recent university graduate with a degree in media, focusing on journalism, marketing, and film production. Aside from my reading obsession, I have a huge amount of love for photography and I can often be found outdoors with my camera. I'm pretty sure the squirrels at my local park are fed up of me prying into their privates lives with a lens.

As well as reading stories, I also enjoy writing them! I take part in NaNoWriMo each year and have won four times in total, two of them during Camp NaNoWriMo. Two of my short stories have been published in an anthology featuring poems, scripts, and stories from new writers, which can be found on Amazon (shameless self-promotion). I also can’t escape writing listicles. Seriously, who doesn’t like lists? I research and write about obscure facts at Listverse and TopTenz.

I'm a huge fan of movies and way, way, too many TV shows. Renewal and cancellation season is probably the worst time of year for me. Whether it's on screen or on the page, you can usually find me getting emotional over my favourite fictional characters.
I love to chat to authors, bloggers, and just book lovers in general, so please feel free to contact me via email or drop me a tweet! If you have any questions, or you’d like to find out any more facts about me and the blog, you can check out the FAQ page here.
