Jonathan is thirteen years old and in Year 8 at Glenunga International High School. He has been with the 10-14 year old Young Writers Group since its inception. He enjoys attending the meetings and taking part in the discussions about writing, as well as reading a wide range of young adult and teenage fiction books by a number of different authors. Recently he read Ready Player One by Ernest Cline and is looking forward to the release of his next novel. When he is not reading, writing, or blogging, Jonathan plays the trumpet and is a part of the 2nd Adelaide Scout Group. He happily goes to Mitcham Square with his mum but only if he gets to look in Mostly Books while she is grocery shopping.
Adela is in Year Nine, and has been reviewing for Mostly Books since late 2013. She enjoys reading modern classics, music biographies and quirky YA fiction best, and her favourite books are Patti Smith’s Just Kids and Jack Kerouac’s On The Road. She has also previously had some of her poetry published – both in issues of the SAETA Spring Poetry Anthology and in the InDaily’s ‘Poet’s Corner’ – though these days, she prefers to write song lyrics and blog posts. Asides from books, Adela is also passionate about rock music, cult cinema, vintage fashion and drawing. You can follow her adventures elsewhere on her music blog.
