Dea is 18 years old and a college junior who takes up Broadcast Communication in University of the Philippines. She began reading young adult books in 2008 when the Twilight series sparked her interest. Ambitious in a way that wants plethora of success, she desires to be an author, journalist, photographer, and traveler someday. She fangirls over Rafael Nadal, a tennis player who is a total callipygian. Reads before sleeping, sips coffee while holding a book in the afternoon, and wakes early to read, her brothers usually mock her for having no life. She promises to avoid superfluous intensifiers in her reviews and nonsensical thoughts to leak in her words. Dystopia, Contemporary, and Fantasy books consume her heart and she’ll never get enough of them.
Mary Ann grew up in Manila, Philippines and the youngest and only girl in three siblings. She started to crave for books when her friend Deavelle was reading the ‘Twilight’ series and also when her friend Carl asked her about ‘Hush Hush’. She hardly ever broke herself on books. She loves any contemporary YA Books or even paranormal ones but just became fussy when it comes to some adult books. When she can actually tear herself away from books, she enjoys bad reality TV, listening to music, and watching movies. She’s a self-professed insomniac, in which those times she daydream, and has a passion for all things wacky and hilarious. Now, Mary Ann currently resides in Bulacan – a beautiful province in The Philippines- and a 3rd year IT student. When she’s already profitable, she wishes to own a bookstore and have a self-made book.

Patrick is just a fifteen year old Junior, so his bio will be short. Patrick is an extreme procrastinator. He is an academic achiever who seldom studies. He really loves to eat, and has a soft spot for chocolates. He loves to listen to Taylor Swift and 1D, and mind you, he's a hardcore fan of Taylor Swift. He was enchanted by books when he first read the Nancy Drew series when he was just on fifth grade. Up until now, he just read over 60 books because he's always busy hanging out with his friends, or just tweeting about books. Now, he sits by the window and busies himself on reading YA novel to make up for the lost time. His favorite authors include J.K. Rowling, Carolyn Keene, Veronica Roth, Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl, Cassandra Clare, and Suzanne Collins.
Christian Jane or Ate CJ to us was a high school valedictorian and now a graduating Accountancy student from University of Sto. Tomas (The oldest university in Asia). She was the one who introduced a YA book besides Twilight to his brother Carl, who has been our friend since forever. Her brother brought Hush Hush to school and let us read a few passages. Instead, we finished several chapters that day. Technically, she’s behind our craziness about Young Adult books now. Not that it’s a bad thing. J
We were so thrilled to find out that she had accepted our request to her to be a guest reviewer. Despite her busy schedule, she still gave us a favor of sharing her thoughts with everyone through this blog. We owe you a lot of thanks Ate CJ!!!
