Our Reviewers

Hello fellow readers! My name is Maryam and I’m 16 and I am literally addicted to reading. I read mainly YA books and I am trying to read more poetry as well. My favourite genres would be contemporary, fantasy and dystopian. And my favourite author would have to be Cassandra Clare, the infernal devices is my favourite trilogy ever. I have read John Green’s books countless times and I am just in love with his writing, if I can be half as good as him, I will be content. 

I don’t have a blog at the moment (planning to start one after my exams), but if you ever want to chat about books, hit me up on my twitter @marylovesbookss.

I have many favourite books which include Fangirl, The Infernal Devices trilogy, Harry Potter (of course), Throne of Glass series and many many more. If I was to name them all, it would take a while.

I'm Priya :) My life basically revolves around books and musical theatre!

I'm a big John Green fan (DFTBA) and my favourite book is definitely The Fault in Our Stars! However I also love dystopian novels (such as Divergent, Throne of Glass and The Selection) contemporary novels, historical novels and a wide variety of other genres!

I am Makayla and I'm 15 years old. I evidently enjoy reading otherwise I wouldn't be blogging for YA Birmingham. I don't really have a favourite genre or author particularly because I have lots of favourites that would take me a long time to name. However if I absolutely had to narrow it down, I would have to say Cassandra Clare, JK Rowling, John Green and Rainbow Rowell (at the moment- Sarah J Maas may just be adding herself to the abbreviated list). I also love doing sports (once I can be bothered to get up to do them!) and listening and playing music.

If you would like to read my reviews then go to or talk to me on twitter go to @Kayzaria.
