Hi! I'm Emily Rasmussen, the blogger behind the magic (or the hopefully-coherent jumble of thoughts—however you prefer to look at it) that is Forever Literary. I started this site in May of 2012 as an outlet for my passion for YA books and have loved every minute of the experience (except for the bouts of intense reviewer's block and hours spent trying to get Blogger's formatting tools to cooperate with me). 

Today, Forever Literary still exists as a place for me to share my thoughts on YA of all kinds, but particularly my two favorite genres, contemporary and historical fiction. And in addition to my bookish posts here on my blog, I also co-host A Novel Chat, a weekly podcast about all things YA, with my blogging friends Aneeqah and Willa

When I am not reading or talking about books, I can be found preparing for my next test (I'm a business student studying in downtown Indianapolis), talking like a Londoner, 
eating weird health foods that no one else likes, and dreaming up extravagant international adventures. 

Want to know more? Feel free to Tweet at me or leave a comment on the blog. I hope to talk to you soon!
