Hi! I’m Gabby, founder of Fable & Hawke. I am a high schooler, big dreamer, and avid reader. When I’m not reading, I love traveling, singing, dancing, photography, cooking, baking, and trying to watch a 2-hour movie in 30 minutes (spoiler: it doesn’t work). As the former book reviewer for my school’s newspaper, I created Fable & Hawke as a place to continue sharing my thoughts on newly released YA books spanning many genres, reading levels, and interests. Each book is bought with my own money, read cover to cover, given my honest review, and donated. And proceeds from your donations and the items you buy from the shop go right back into keeping F&H running, so consider showing your support today!

– Gabby
