About Me and My Blog

Hi there!!!

I’m May, a teen book lover and blogger, and writer! I’m passionate about books, social issues, and food. On my blog you should expect lots of screaming about books, diversity, writing, and food (namely mangoes).


  • I’m Thai (born and live in the US), and I refuse to believe that Thai food is not the best food to exist.
  • I’m an avid reader of Young Adult books, and I try to read solely diverse books!
  • I love to write, though you’ll likely find me NOT writing rather than actually doing it. I usually write in the fantasy genre, and also try to write some poetry.
  • I’m very introverted and use humor as a shield a little too often!!
  • I’m queer and use she/her pronouns!


  • On my blog, you can find book lists, book reviews, discussions, helpful guides, and more!
  • I’ve been blogging since January 2017, and I’ve loved it ever since! (Please do NOT try to look back at my old posts, or you’ll hear me crying in the distance.)
  • You may know me for my love of mangoes, or my overuse of parentheses, or hosting the Book Blogger Awards!
  • I’m open to working with authors and publishers: contact me here.


  • Hobbies: reading, writing, dance, eating
  • Genres: YA (fantasy & contemporary)
  • Authors: Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Victoria Schwab, Anna-Marie McLemore, Rick Riordan
  • Shows: One Day at a Time, Queer Eye, The Good Place

I just came across your blog and I we seem a lot alike, honestly.☺️ I’m a fellow teen blogger and love love love reading/writing, though I don’t blog about it much, every once in a while I do.

Keep up the good work, lovely, you’re doing great!💗

  2. Hi May! I just discovered your blog and we really do have a lot in common! I’m Asian (Indian), I think Thai food’s the BEST, reading is huge in my life, I love Rick Riordan, and I’m also going through some tough times 🙂
    Your blog made my day. I hope you liked my (newbie) blog just as much as I like yours!


  3. Hi, May! I just came across your blog and LOVE it! Your post writing style is so awesome and the design is gorgeous! It’s sooooo nice to meet another mango lover (they’re the absolute best 😀 ), and I really like YA contemporary as well. And I can definitely relate…I love writing but most of the time you can find me *not* writing and basically procrastinating everything.

    Anyways, I’m totally looking forward to more posts from you! 💛💛
