My name is Katie Meadows and I am a book lover and mother of two little girls living in the Seattle area. In my early 20s, I worked as a bookseller at Borders, where (among other things) I managed the store’s children’s department. Few things in my professional life have brought me more joy than being able to help children and families find the perfect book. When Borders closed its doors, it led me to create this blog as a way to share my love of children’s literature with people all over the world. Founded in 2012, Youth Literature Reviews features book reviews and carefully curated book lists for children, babies, and teens.

For questions about this blog, or if you are an author, publisher, or brand who would like to work with me, please contact me at youthlitreviews(at)live(dot)com. You can also find me on Instagram and Twitter.
