(Updated September 2016. You can read my old About Me, written in 2009, here. Much of the information is outdated, but some of it is still fun to read.)
Hi. (I feel like this should start with hi, for some reason.) I'm Laina. I'm twenty-three currently as of writing this. My birthday is in December (you should know this so you can send me presents and cake and fun stuff). I live in Canada. Where I live. In Canada. I've been blogging since October 2008, but I had about a year's hiatus from mid-2012 to mid-2013 due to personal reasons. I largely read YA and you can read more about that in my review policy.
In my personal life, I baby-sit two awesome kids, and do Storytime at my local library, which is one hour a week for 3 year olds and up so I talk about kid crafts and picture books a lot on Twitter. I read a ton of picture books a year, and you can find my catalogue on LibraryThing. The views and opinions of this blog in no way reflect my employers.
In my spare time (of which I have much less than when I named this blog when I was fifteen), I am a writer, I like to cook, and I play a few video games. And I spend way too much time on Twitter.
