Hello! My name is Taylor, I am 16-years-old, and have a huge passion for all things book-related. When I’m not reading, obsessing over fictional guys or uploading videos on my YouTube channel, taylortalksbooks, I am most likely jamming out to some of my favorite tunes, watching '90s films, or endlessly rapping Guns and Ships. I am so thrilled to fangirl over some amazing books and share all of my feels with everyone in the Teenreads community!
