Eden Temple


My name is Eden Temple and I am a social worker who lives and reads in San Francisco. I write fiction and poetry on the side and enjoy everything to do with books. My love affair with reading began before I could talk. My earliest memories include feeling terrified and fascinated by THE BFG, staying up way past bedtime flashlight fixed on Tolkien's harrowing battles, and daydreaming about the day that I might fall down a rabbit hole like my beloved Alice.

Natalia Olivera


Hello! My name is Natalia! I am currently 20-years-old and I reside in Northern New Jersey. When I am not reading or reviewing, I am either working at a family-owned boutique or traveling the world. I have a severe case of wanderlust and I am trying to see the beauty of this world we live in. Reading almost means the same to me as traveling because I truly love when a good book can take me away from every day life into a place I have never been before. Music is also extremely important to me. I listen to broad range of music including classic rock, pop, punk and heavy metal.
