Jo Stapley wants to live in a world where all discover the magic of reading, where people frequently travel our world and others through the pages of a book, and where everyone gives Young Adult fiction a chance.
A YA and fantasy book blogger since 2009, she’s shared book lists on The Scottish Book Trust, been one of the Cision Top Ten Teen Literature Blogs in 2010 and 2012, has had reviews quoted in the Praise pages of several YA and adult novels, and been granted the honour of being a media partner of, and speaker at, The London Book Fair 2013,
When she’s not reading, reviewing, discussing, or – at work – selling books, you can find her spending time with her family, writing letters to her penpals, dreaming of her next theatre or cinema visit, occassionally (ok, one time) winning competitions to name books, and getting her latest fix of whatever TV show she’s currently obsessed with (The Big Bang Theory. Always.).
Her fourth themed YA blog event looking into teen issues/experiences – LGBTQ YA Month – was held in July 2013.
