HEY Y’ALL, WE HAVE MISSED YOU. To recap: our old site was extremely outdated and it eventually got to a point when it was incompatible with, like, back-end stuff so we couldn’t even update anything anymore. Meaning that we haven’t been able to put out a legitimate post since APRIL 5TH ZOMG.

As previously stated, our site way WAS overdue for an overhaul, so we took this opportunity to build FYA’s dream home (with your generous help!), and now we’re finally able to invite you all in! Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU for bearing with us during this wild time.

If you’ve been keeping up with our social media accounts, you may have noticed that we still kept reviewing books all this time! And now there are so many new reviews for y’all to feast your eyes upon. Behold!
