Hi! I’m Emily, and I’ve been the blogger behind Forever Literary since May 2012. 

I write recommendation lists, discussion posts, and book reviews that sometimes seem to think they’re essays for English class. Mostly, I read contemporary and historical fiction, with a particular focus on diverse books, so if that’s your thing, stick around! 

Here are a few of my favorite posts, just to give you a taste of what my blog is like:

In addition to Forever Literary, you can find me on A Novel Chat (the podcast I co-host) and in Stay Bookish Zine (an e-zine about all things YA).

If I’m not reading or talking about books, I’m probably studying for my next exam, learning something new just for fun (tell me something I don’t know about physics or psychology and we’ll be friends for life), planning tomorrow’s to-do list, or dreaming about international adventures. 

Interested in working with me? Check out my review policy or shoot me an email at foreverliterary [at] gmail [dot] com. Interested in saying hi? (Please do—I love meeting new bookish friends!) Follow me on Twitter or add me on Goodreads

Thanks for stopping by—I hope to see you back soon
