How old are you?
I’m an in-denial 25yo. My birthday is on June 13th so every now and then it falls on a Friday, which is rather unfortunate.

How long have you been blogging?
I first set up The Queen of Teen Fiction in January 2011, so I’ve been typing away here for almost seven years. It’s my longest and most stable relationship. And the most fulfilling.

Will you review my book?
I am always open to requests from authors and publishers, but please read my Review Policy first, to see if your book is what I’m looking out for at the moment.

Who designed your blog?
I did! Instead of buying a professional design, I’m too broke to buy one I decided to attempt designing it myself. The style of the blog has changed several times of the years, and there have been more than a fair share of graphic disasters, but hey, I’m learning!

Why do you change your design so much?

Your reviews aren’t always very formal, why?
I am by no means a professional book reviewer, so why act like one? I’m not paid to share my opinions on the books I read, so I like to do things in my own way. My blog is fun for me. If I felt like I had to be formal and strict all the time, it would be downer to write posts. Also, let’s not hide the fact that my grammar is terrible and I make way too many mistakes to pretend to be a high quality reviewer.

Do you review independently published books?
When I first started blogging, the only review requests I ever received were from self-published authors. Since then, I’ve read and adored many independently published stories that are just as good as, if not better than some, traditionally published works. Although I have to limit the amount of requests I accept (because there are just too many, and there’s just too little time), if I like the sound of a story, I will read it, no matter what the publishing method.

Do you make YouTube videos for your blog?
I do! I’m pathetically nervous and awkward in front of the camera, but I was determined to give it a try. You can check out my channel here.

Can I share your review or quote you?
As long as you give credit, sure.

What is your favourite book?
You can’t ask me to choose a favourite child, how rude of you.

Give me a list of potential favourites, then?
Okay, if you insist. Some of my favourites include:
Harry Potter by J. K. Rowling (obviously)
The Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
The Raven Cycle Series by Maggie Stiefvater  
The Mediator Series by Meg Cabot
Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys (this was the book that actually inspired me to set up this blog, so it’s pretty special to me)
Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell
Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Are you an actual Queen?
