My name is Lian Nathaniel and I am 12 years old. My regular internet spot is Summer of Fun Blog. On it I do video game saves, science experiments, vlog about community events, and interview people. I started reviewing books there in the third grade and it is one of my favorite things to do. I also have a short story published that I hope to expand to a full length novel in 2016.

I will be sharing my reviews of Kid Books; picture books, chapter books, YA books and short stories. (If you have a book you would like me to read, contact this blog.) What I love best is getting to know people. That is why I started interviewing people. I have interviewed all kinds of people. The mayor of my city,  a senator from my state, professional athletes and musicians, even the librarian at my school. I would love to get to know more about the authors whose work is reviewed on this blog.

So let’s play a game. I will ask some questions and you pick the ones you want to answer.

In the comments, tell me a little bit about who you are and then pick 5 questions (or answer them all) and I will share your answers with everyone!
