Write Up My Galley

Read. Review. Repeat.


Hello, my name is Mary. I am a High School Librarian and I’ve been an avid reader for as long as I can remember. Write Up My Galley is a place for me to archive and share book reviews past and present. I read a mix of Advanced Reader Copies or Galleys of potential interest to me or my students, recent releases and backlist titles.

As I continue to develop my writing and reviewing skills, I hope that you will find a book of interest along the way. Thank you for coming by!

Reading suggestions or offers of review copies of upcoming titles may be sent to writeupmygalley@gmail.com.
