About Me and My Reading Habits


My name is Captain Lyaf Yarr. I am age 13 and a young adult reader. I started this blog when I was 11 in September 2009 with my older sister. I love to read, swim, listen to music, go bowling, jump on the trampoline, and hang out with my friends.

I started this blog to share my thoughts and opinions on young adult books that I read. My blog will have a pirate theme because I am a Yarr! (Yarr = Young Adult Reader and Reviewer.) You may call me Captain Lyaf Yarr as I will be the pirate to steer you through the open seas on adventures that will change you and shape you as you grow up!

Which do you like more: finishing a book or starting a new one?

I like finishing a book best because I like to know the ending and I feel very accomplished when I do.

Which reading format do you like best: print, audio, digital?

It depends what kind of book it is. For example I enjoy listening to Meg Cabot and J.K Rowling on audio because I love the narrators’ characters voices and acting.

How big is your TBR (to be read) pile and how many books do you read in a month?

I usually have between 2-10 books in my pile and I think I read between 2 and 5 books a month.

For fun share two truths and one false fact about yourself.

  1. My favorite color is red, which makes me very good at finding the X on a treasure map.
  2. I like to travel and have been to South America and crossed the entire length of the Panama Canal.
  3. I have walked the plank and got my vengeance when I incited a mutiny. That’s how I became Captain Yarr.
