Hello!  I'm Cassi Haggard. I'm a 27 year old girl from smalltown Kentucky who has too many hobbies and too little time.  I love books, particularly young adult books, but also fantasy, science fiction, urban fantasy, anything pertaining to Appalachia (okay I may not always love these books. But being Appalachian, I've earned the right to judge) and whatever strikes my fancy  Basically I read a lot of books and a lot of genres.

Sometimes I feel like the oddball YA reviewer screaming at all the heroines to stop being so boy crazy and to be strong independent women.  I'll take an Alanna over a Bella any day.  My favorite books tend to be written by Melina Marchetta.  Aside from her I also love the Leviathan trilogy by Scott Westerfeld, the Hex Hall series by Rachel Hawkins (this is fluffy done right. Take note), the Chaos Walking trilogy by Patrick Ness and the Ruby Oliver books by E. Lockhart.  Everything from steampunk to dystopian to contemporary as long as it's well done.

Occasionally you will see posts about my garden or my travels.  Someday maybe I'll have more time to travel and there will be even more photo posts! (Dreaming I know).  I like to hike, climb, cave and generally be outside.  During the winter I spend my time knitting, during the summers gardening.  I have an 80 pound dog who does not understand that she is not a laptop and I'm horrible at cleaning.

My couch, my dog & my Kindle. This is my life.
