Alex & Kayla, the creators of The Book Brontosaurus

Prepare yourself to learn about The Book Brontosaurus, a YA book blog!

We are best friends who wanted to start sharing our opinions of the many worlds we like to immerse ourselves in and we share a lot of similar tastes. Our favorites are mostly in YA, but include Fantasy, and Paranormal fictions. Alex reads more rom-coms and romance novels and Kayla reads more mysteries and coming of age fiction. We hope to recommend some great reads so we can keep readers from going extinct!

While we enjoy reading books together, we also enjoy reading our favorite genres which don’t always match. Because of this, you’ll see reviews from books we’ve read together and individually posted on our site! To check out our Review Policy, click here.

About Alex

Alex, one of the creators of The Book Brontosaurus

I moved around a lot at the beginning of middle school and had a hard time making friends. There was a library in the town we’d moved to that caught my interest. Reading has always been a constant for me.  The book that started me on my journey was The Hobbit and it will forever hold a special place in my heart.

About Kayla

Kayla, one of the creators of The Book Brontosaurus

I actually hated reading as a kid. I had a teacher who told me one day that just because you started a book doesn’t mean you have to finish it. At first, my urge to finish everything I started prevented me from listening. Then I found my niche, started listening, and BAM! Lifelong obsession. The first book I remember enjoying was “The House with a Clock in its Walls” by John Bellairs. But the first series that really stole my heart was Harry Potter. Cliché, I know.
