About Me


I am Tessa, lover of books and cheesy puns. I have combined my love of words and groan-worthy jokes to give life to this oasis for bookworms and bibliophiles on the Internet.
Fun Fact: Crazy for YA has graced the Internet with its presence for six years now, which is approximately five years longer than I thought. Hopefully, the little bugger continues to thrive despite its crazy master.
As for me, I enjoy reading pretty much anything and I will try anything at least once unless it involves spicy food, heights, or spiders. In those cases, I will run away to the nearest corner and assume a defensive position that looks like cowering but is actually self-preservation.
In the rare occasion that I have free time and I am not reading, I can be found procrastinating on social media, cuddling with my adorable puppies, or stepping outside with ten pounds of sunscreen to play tennis. I also enjoy long walks on the beach, anything with chocolate, and fuzzy socks, in case anyone was wondering where I stand on those important issues. 

If you're interested in hearing about my favorite (and not so favorite) books, you should check out my reviews page. You could also take a look at my archive page, which includes all of my posts, who knows what you will find. Or you can find my features page, which explains the other posts I (inconsistently) do.

Don't be shy in the comments--I'd love to hear what you think! Blogging is not a solitary endeavor. If no one commented, then I would just be a crazy bookworm talking to herself. We don't want that, right?

If you like want to have some awesome discussions about books, writing, Supernatural, Doctor Who, cute puppies, the meaning of life or anything that randomly comes to your head, check out my other social media.

Due to an influx of review books and an acute lack of time, Crazy for YA is not accepting review books at this time. 

Feel free to email me with any questions, comments, or book recommendations.



The books that I read are reviewed with honesty and without monetary incentives. Most of the time, I supply my own books, but some books are given to me through an author, publisher, or tour company in exchange for an honest review. The fact that the book was given to me will not affect my opinions. Reviews of books received from authors and publishers will be clearly marked.
