Hello, wonderful readers! I'm breaking my once-a-week posting schedule to bring you my NaNoWriMo project of 2020!

Why YA Science Fiction is an Underrated Genre + Better Than Fantasy
Hello, dear readers! I am a HUGE fan of science fiction. Some of my favorite stories are considered sci-fi (though, to be fair, Hunger Games is dystopian sci-fi) What I'm confused by, though, is the lack of new YA science fiction in today's top releases, especially given the amount of fantasy novels.
