About

We Live and Breathe Books is a blog primarily dedicated to reviewing books in the young adult genre, founded in May 2013. All of our reviews are 100% honest, regardless of how the book was obtained. Since this is a group blog, we like to mix in some posts where more than one of us review the same book. Continue reading for more information about us!

Hello! I'm Kiersten and I'm a senior Costume Design major at Syracuse University. Some of my favorite things are reading, dancing, makeup, and famous internet pets. But actually famous internet pets - I have stuffed animal versions of Grumpy Cat (a regular sized and mini one with a party hat), Lil Bub, Pusheen (possibly not a real pet, but loved regardless), Boo (of the regular and Christmas outfit variety, as well as a mini one with a party hat), and Buddy (Boo's best friend). My sloth stuffed animal (Sloth) thinks he's a famous internet pet (he goes on adventures). I like pictures of cats and clothing with cats on them, but I'm not particularly fond of real cats who want to come near me. My spirit animal is somewhere between caticorn (cat/unicorn hybrid) and slothicorn (sloth/unicorn hybrid). In other words, I am a unicorn. I don't sleep (yay, college) even though sleeping is my favorite. If you like books (I mean, why would you be reading this if you didn't?), talk to me on the social medias! Happy reading!

Hello friends! Some facts about me:

  • My Hogwarts house is Ravenclaw.
  • I have not actually slept in maybe two years. The last time I updated this bio it was about how I consistently overslept for my 11:AM classes. The sad thing is, now I stay up even later, but don't really have a problem getting up anywhere between 8:00am - 9:45am. My body has just kinda adjusted?
  • I'm an English major at North Carolina State University, concentrating in Language, Writing & Rhetoric. If that sounds cool to you or you want to talk to me about it, hit me up on one of my many forms of social media and I'd love to talk to you!! Otherwise I will shut up, because this is not a resume.
  • I spend a lot of time on social media. Like, probably not just more than the average person. Maybe more than the average family. Honestly, I have to avoid writing papers some way or another, and my Instagram feed is not gonna catch itself up. 
  • I secretly only have one eyebrow. 
I promise I'm super friendly and I love new people so if you have a book rec or some super strong opinions (because God knows I have some REALLY strong opinions) or just wanna chat, say hi!


Hi guys! My name is Amrutha and I am a freshman at Rutgers, a finance major, and a professional fangirl. I have been reading and freaking out about heart-stopping writing for as long as I can remember. If there’s a solid OTP happening, you better believe that I’m on board. I love pretty much all kinds of books, but one of my favorite genres is YA lit – young adult fiction has been my solace since I was allowed to borrow from the “grown up” section of the library, and this genre continues to surprise me with new twists, constantly evolving characters, and romance for days. While I’ve tended to post really sporadically recently because of college, I’m trying to work out a schedule that allows me to post regularly and explore my love of literature more. If you read any of my past reviews, you'll find that they are a bit harsh (I'm Amruthless, nice to meet you). However, this means that every good review of mine you find are actually phenomenal books, which are my favorite thing. Outside of books and school, I love all things internet and television and bad jokes and solid one liners. Please hit me up with any books you'd like reviewed or just to fangirl about things in general!

Greetings! I am Sam, (Sam I am) and I am thrilled to be a contributor for WLABB. An avid reader and science nerd, I would describe myself as a fiction lover. I do tend to read a lot of contemporary romances, but I also like to mix it up. I also love discussing books in reader groups and on Instagram.




I was born in the far off land of Guyana, from which I cannot garner a single memory. Though, I have taken away the superpower of those from the Caribbean or Caribbean adjacent: I understand the sometimes mystical, Babylonian, almost-english words in Reggae songs. Somewhere in between there and the States, I was in Canada, but it was too cold to remember. So here I am, the New York, New Jersey area. I attended High School in a small alcove of hell known as "JFK Memorial High School" in "New Jersey". There were lots of books during these formative four years, most of which were Percy Jackson, as I re-read the series several (actually 14, not including the second series), and The Mortal Instruments, and the Tapestry series, and, well, you can check my goodreads, but those were the most prominent before I got into the more Hitch-22, and Hitchhiker's Guide books. After a while, I was accepted into NYU's Liberal Arts Program, and spent a year abroad in London, mostly visiting the British Museum, trying not to be a tourist, and smiling at my covers of UK editions of books. And now, I am in New York again, involved in the 2015 CUPSI event for NYU, and studying the bits I mentioned above. I'm here to read some books and kick some butt, and I'll probably never run out of either.
