Creative Writing & English Education student. Books, writing, education, and kidlit abound.

Hi there!

Welcome to Books and Big Ideas

You’ve reached a book blog-turned-website from your local college student, writer, and soon-to-be English teacher. On the blog, you’ll find book reviews and recommendations, mostly young adult (YA) and middle grade (MG) of interest to teens, educators, and everyone in between. On the pages, you can find out more about me, my writing, and other projects I’ve done. Thank you for being in my small corner of the Internet!
