About

Book Slaying

Is a blog dedicated to YA (and the occasional NA) book reviews, book discussions, giveaways, and other MISC bookish things, like author guest posts and interviews.

I’ve been an on-off blogger for about 6 years now. I started with www.slayingbooks.com in 2012, closed the site down for personal reasons in late 2014, and then in December of 2016, created www.bookslaying.com. Blogging has always been a side hobby of mine. Sometimes life gets very hectic, and I can’t post as often as I’d like, but for the most part, this blog is active.

If you’re interested in having me review a book, or take part in a blog tour, click here to read my review policy. Please make sure you read the entire policy, because I’m selective when it comes to genres and book formats, and will ignore requests that don’t meet my requirements.

Who is Lauren?

I’m a 27 year old from New Hampshire, USA, who juggles reading and blogging with a M-F office desk job. When I’m not working, reading or sleeping, I’m most likely watching TV. The current shows I’m addicted to are: Game of Thrones, The Handmaid’s Tale, and Stranger Things. I also constantly re-watch these shows: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Boy Meets World, and Roswell.

Like a large chunk of the population, I didn’t realize how magical reading was until I discovered Harry Potter when I was in 5th grade in the year 2000. Some of my all time favorite series now include: HP (duh) by J.K. Rowling, Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, SWEEP by Cate Tiernan,  A Court of Thorns and Roses and Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, and Curse of the Gods by Jaymin Eve and Jane Washington.
