New Dark Faerie Tales Team Member: Meet Kayla

As you know, we recently had a few of our team members leave.  I just had to put out another call for help.  I’m very pleased to say that we got another round of fantastic responses to our application.

We have been spending some time getting things setup for the new site launch design, as well as getting everyone trained in the different facets of blogging on the WordPress interface.  Our introduction comes today from Kayla.  We’re pretty excited to have Kayla join the team.  She’s our resident high school student with an interesting perspective on young adult fiction.  Kayla is going to do reviews for us.  You can read some of Kayla’s lovely reviews after this post. Please welcome Kayla to the team.

Any sort of free time I have I use for reading. I’ve always loved books (I’ve been called a nerd and bookworm more than once and I take it as a compliment). Huge books, small books, red books, blue books — you get the idea. My obsession with YA has just kicked in this past year or so (my library check out has reached up to 20 in just one week), and my love has kept on growing.

The first book that I read for fun was Mossflower by Brian Jaques. Great book for little kids (has talking animals and all that jazz), and it already had five books out in the series. As soon as I devoured that series, I started the Maximum Ride series that started my love for YA sci-fi and paranormal. Anything with faeries I absolutely adore — Julie Kagawa, Lesley Livingston, and Aprilynne Pike are some of my favorites. Just recently I’ve been reading dystopian and becoming immersed in the completely different worlds and characters. Steampunk is also another genre that’s caught my attention (even better if it has paranormal characteristics too). Really, I’ll read any type of YA that has a hint of paranormal. Just plain romance is so boring!

People ask why I read so much and I usually end up blabbering all about my current read in an erratic sort of way (it usually makes them drop the subject). So I tried writing book reviews on my own blog (after all, my goal is to become a full-fledged journalist). And did that fail. Keeping up a blog is hard work, and with school and home life I didn’t have the time. So when I saw the chance to review books without the upkeep, I jumped (literally) at the chance!
