Hey guys, I’m Katlynn. I’ve known Taylor for about a year now. I met her when she was writing The Last Legacy Season One. I was one of her beta readers and we hit it off. We have been friends since then.
I wanna start by saying I have thought about this post and contemplated over what I am going to write about. I finally decided to just wing it and see what I come up with.
I started reading when I was 13 years old and in high school. I had a rough time from 7th grade on. There was one book that made me start reading though. Cut by Patricia McCormick was the first book that I read and actually enjoyed. I was self-harming at the time and I thought it would be a really good book. It helped me realize that I needed to stop self-harming and live my life to the fullest. It’s about a girl who would self-harm and ended up in a psychiatric hospital. I could relate to her in many ways. I never did it too deep and I never did it to kill myself, I did it to take away the pain. This book has helped me come a long way in life.
Since then I have read so many books I lost track after 200. But there are some that have stuck with me since I read them.
A Child Called It by David Pelzer was another book that has stayed with me forever. It’s about a boy who is abused by his family. It opened my eyes to the world of child abuse and how it’s not something that should be avoided. It’s a real problem in our world and people don’t even realize it could be happening next door to them.
A few more books that have stuck with me:
The Glass Castle by Jeanette Wells
The Pact by Jodi Picoult
My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult
Crank by Ellen Hopkins
Burned by Ellen Hopkins
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
Go Ask Alice by Anonymous
The list can go on and on.
Now, I love to read and have never stopped. I have read ARCs and been gifted books by authors in exchange for reviews. I need to catch up on my ARC list but that is one of my resolutions for the year is to catch up on all the ARCs I have been leant. I also need to catch up on my website and my facebook page. But right now I am reading an addicting series called The Mortal Instruments. I’m addicted. Once this series is over I am going to start reading the ARCs and the books on my list to be read.
Thank you all for reading my takeover.

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
