FAQ



How old are you?
I’m a very sad 25yo. My birthday is on June 13th, so every now and again, it falls on a Friday the 13th, which is rather unfortunate.

How long have you been blogging?
The Queen of Teen Fiction was started in January 2011, so I’ve been typing away here for almost five 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?
I’M HIGHLY INDECISIVE. LEAVE ME BE.


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 so 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'd wanted to make videos for a very long time before I started, but good old Anxiety™ always held me back. After a pretty awful panic attack a few years ago, I became determined to try and tackle at least one of the things that my anxiety kept me from achieving, and finally I filmed a booktube video. It was terrible and I had to pause every two minutes because I wanted to cry, but I got there in the end. I've been making my videos for over two years now and I'm super proud of how far I've come!

Your reviews aren’t always very formal, why?
I’m 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, I wouldn't be as excited 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 take your own blog pictures?
Since falling in love with photography, I always try to take my own pictures to be used on my blog. Unless stated otherwise, it's usually my own image.

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

What's your Hogwarts house?
Hufflepuff. I was a Ravenclaw until Pottermore decided it'd be a fun idea to let us take the quiz again and give us an identity crisis.


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 Mediator Series by Meg Cabot
The Raven Cycle series by Maggie Stiefvater
The Mortal Instruments/Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare
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 & Carry On by Rainbow Rowell

Why do you like so much KPOP?
I JUST DO, OKAY.

Are you an actual Queen?
Obviously.

If you have any questions that haven’t been answered here, please ask away! You can contact me by email here: queenofteenfiction@hotmail.co.uk or simply drop me a tweet
