About Us

strawberry & blondeIMG_0821

We’re Emily and Rachel, Strawberry and Blonde – two friends and recent graduates of the University of Alabama. Rachel will soon start graduate school at the University of Alabama in the Speech-Language Pathology program, while Emily will attend the Columbia Publishing Course before she starts hunting for a job in publishing. Last summer, we sent books back and forth to each other from Marietta, GA and Chesterfield, MO, fitting in as much reading as possible between summer classes and internships, and used this blog to share our thoughts, favorite quotes, and whatever else might strike our fancy about the books we’re sharing. Senior year, Emily did most of the posting, with Rachel popping in here and there, but now that it’s summer time again, expect a bit more from Rachel, because we’re at it again!

We LOVE young adult fantasy and historical fiction, so fair warning, any passersby will probably see a lot of that.
