About the Reviewer

Amara's Eden has one reviewer--me, Amara Tanith. I'm a female Millennial from the United States who's loved reading since toddlerhood. After being the weird girl who read all the time in elementary and middle school, I went through a reading slump in high school before the returning to the hobby after discovering Goodreads, where I became a Superlibrarian and founded the Read by Theme book club.

I started reviewing at Goodreads before starting up Amara's Eden on October 24, 2012; it was for some time co-hosted at Blogspot and BookLikes before moving wholly to BookLikes in February 2015. I also review at Leafmarks, but I no longer review at Goodreads because of their 2013 policy change.

I'm a fan of fantasy and horror, and I have a fondness for children's books--from MG to picture books. Most of my books come from libraries and thrift stores, but I am also receive review copies via NetgalleyEdelweiss, and occasionally Shelf Awareness.

I also enjoy writing and completed NaNoWriMo in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014; I've completed Camp NaNoWriMo in June 2012, August 2012, and April 2014.
