 Hello Everyone! Sorry for the late posting, it's been pretty busy at Casa Tynga lately.

I have been very busy with my etsy shop creating all kinds of logos and my photography is also launching nicely as my entire month is booked! Here are some pictures in case you are interested ^^

Blog wise, I hope you like the new look I created :) I felt like it was time for change!

Also, more change coming on the blog, since Jenn hasn't been able to review for over a year now, we filled up with a new girl!

So I would like to introduce Kara, here's a little more about her:

I’m a teen librarian in my late-twenties (rare, I know) living in the southern US with a web developer husband, whom I have convinced to listen to audiobooks; a wonderful preschool-age daughter, who loves reading so much she sleeps with her books; and a rescue dog aptly named Katniss, who is the best company for reading though she can’t help but have a taste for pages. I’ve been blogging since 2012 at eKaraLibrium and have only just begun to branch out to other blogs despite my busy life both personally and professionally.

Since childhood, I’ve found myself captivated by the adventures in Narnia, Hogwarts, Middle Earth, Valdemar, and Tortall. Fantasy has always been my first love, and should I ever write/publish (which I hope to do one day), I don’t think I’ll be able to stay away from it for long. Still, I love all types of books: historical fiction, chick lit, romance, dystopian and post-apocalyptic, series, scifi and fantasy, classics, international…and you can usually convince me to read out of my comfort zone as long as it’s really, really good. However, YA is my favorite because I think it’s probably the most overlooked, criticized, and yet deeply inspiring to its readers as teens are forming self-identities and realizing they matter.

Currently, I have a wall of TBR books and with the publishing trends and library work, I don’t think I’ll ever catch up on all of the wonderful things to read.

Please welcome her warmly :) Her first review will be posted very soon!
