My name is Lucy- welcome to The Reading Date! I’ve been sharing my thoughts on YA and Adult Fiction books, movies, TV and bookish events here since 2010. I enjoy discussing books and sharing recommendations with other readers and bloggers and welcome you to join in the discussion.

I read mostly Contemporary Adult and YA but sneak in the occasional Mystery Thriller too. I’m also passionate about diverse books and participate in the YA Diversity Book Club to help celebrate the latest YA releases. Be sure to check out my Monthly Picks where I showcase the most exciting new reads, TV shows and movies.

Andrew is The Reading Date’s movie critic and shares his thoughts on movie releases on The Movie Date feature. You can reach Andrew for movie promo requests here: wordsforthepictures @ gmail.com.

Want to submit a book for review consideration? Please take a look at my Review Policy. These are the books I’ve read this year to give you an idea of the types of books I cover.

Audiobooks are my preferred format. They allow me to multi-task and still keep up with my reading. I still read ebooks and print books but it takes me much longer to get through them due to time constraints.

Besides reading I enjoy cooking, pop culture, movies and TV shows such as Mr. Robot, Silicon Valley, Orphan Black, Younger, and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I get my pop culture fix annually by attending San Diego Comic-Con.
