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.

Reading suggestions or offers of review copies of upcoming titles may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
