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. I originally tried blogging at Weebly, Tumblr, and Wordpress, but found Blogspot to the best fit. I also review at BookLikes and Leafmarks. Because of this, however, I no longer review at Goodreads.

I'm a fan of nonfiction, fantasy, and horror, and I have an ongoing fondness for children's media. 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, 2014, and 2015; I've completed Camp NaNoWriMo in June 2012, August 2012, April 2014, April 2015, July 2015, and April 2016.
