What do you get up to when not reading?
I am a HUGE West Wing fan! I am currently working my way through series 5! And from this I have a newly fuelled interest in American Politics, Obama for 2012!
I love going to gigs! I am obsessed with Florence and the Machine and will be going to see her in March! EXCITED!
What made you want to start reviewing YA books?
Like Bungle and Sally I read a lot of books with a wide variety of genres; however I always seem to gravitate back to YA books. For me they are escapism, I was a shy teenager and I found, and still find I can relate to Characters in this genre. I wanted to start reviewing because when in discussion with my friends about the books we have all read I discovered I had a voice, and that I wanted it to be heard. If I read one amazing book and influence one person to read that book I will be happy, because like Walt Disney said “There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island.” :)
Helen's first review will be posted today!
