I’m May (she/her), a Thai teen book blogger and reviewer, and I love reading to escape the prison of existence! I’m an enthusiast for QPOC, sapphics, and morally grey girls in books, but beyond reading, I enjoy writing, dance, language, and music. On my blog you should expect to see me talking about books, diversity & representation, and, every once in a while, my writing!
- I’m Thai (born and live in the US), and if you hate Thai food, you’re wrong.
- I’m bisexual/queer and use she/her pronouns!
- I’m an avid reader of Young Adult books, though I do read from Middle Grade and Adult, and I read mainly diverse books.
- I love to write, though you’ll probably find me not writing, unfortunately. I usually write in the fantasy genre, and also make an attempt at poetry!
- I play the piano and the drums, and I’m learning French, Spanish, and Thai. Yes, I am sadly a nerd!
- I’m currently a high school student, so you can accurately assume that at any given moment I am stressed out.
- I’m very introverted and use humor as a shield a little too often!!
ABOUT MY BLOG
- On my blog, you can find book lists, book reviews, discussions, helpful guides, and more!!
- I mainly focus on Young Adult books, as well as diverse books, because they make up most of what I read.
- I’ve been blogging since January 2017, and I’ve loved it ever since! (Most of my 2017 posts are privated now, because I cannot handle the idea of anyone looking back and seeing how embarrassing I was.)
- You may know me for my love for mangoes, my overuse of parentheses, my passion for Asian books, or hosting the Book Blogger Awards!
- When you see “the Mango Queen demands your opinions” as the comment prompt… look away. I regret every single thing 2017 me did on this blog, and the option to change it has disappeared. This is my one shame.
- I’m open to working with authors and publishers: You can contact me here.
