Hey everyone! This is my second year on the Teen Board and I'm so excited to be back. Picking up the Hunger Games series all the way back in 2011 began my love for reading, specifically my passion for YA books. Since last year I've filled another (smaller) bookshelf of books and have continued to post videos on my BookTube channel, SimplyThoughtfulBooks. I love being a member of the bookish community and sharing my thoughts here on Teenreads. I've grown a lot since I wrote my first bio here (not physically though, I'm still super short) and I'm excited to see where I'll be a year from now! I can't wait to spend my senior year with all of you!

Top Five Favorite Books:
1. TRUTHWITCH by Susan Dennard
2. The Throne of Glass series by Sarah J. Maas
3. The Darkest Minds series by Alexandra Bracken
4. The Mortal Instruments series by Cassandra Clare
5.  KILL THE BOY BAND by Goldy Moldavsky
