So I guess you're interested in learning some more about me and this blog, huh? Okay, if you insist. ;P

I go by the name Rachel and I am 16 years young. I speak more sarcasm than I do English and pride myself on being extremely weird. I live in the part of the UK famous for Irn Bru, haggis and ginger hair. Aye, you guessed it, Scotland. Although I neither like Irn Bru or haggis and do not possess ginger hair - I am, instead, stuck with a colour that can't decide whether it wants to be dirty blonde or light brown. I'm proud to be Scottish though. My favourite colour is turquoise and I adore animals. Apart from reading, I enjoy horse riding and generally fangirling with people on twitter. You need to be one of those people, tweet me now! @BooktasticR ;)

As for this blog, it has been running for over three years now and I could not be more proud of it. I basically just fangirl and ramble on about everything YA related! I write book reviews, discussion posts, host giveaways, interview authors, fangirl about book-to-movie adaptations... Everything under the sun! If you're looking to get your book reviewed, check out my 'Review Policy' page where you will find my conditions and my email address! Even if you're not an author/publisher, feel free to shoot me an email - even if it's just for a chat! :P
