Author

Adela is in Year Twelve and has been reviewing novels for Mostly Books since late 2013. She likes to read classics and obscurities from the mid-to-late 20th century American literature canon, and her favourite book at the moment is Play It As It Lays by Joan Didion. (Close runner-ups including The Secret History by Donna Tartt, Housekeeping by Marilynne Robinson, and White Noise by Don DeLillo!) Adela is also a writer. She has been published in the 2012 and 2013 SAETA Spring Poetry Anthologies, and in the ‘Poet’s Corner’ of Indaily twice; however, these days, she's more content writing prose for assorted online publications and the occasional short story, poem, and song lyric. Adela is passionate about music, film, and fashion too. When she is not reading or writing, she loves to blast David Bowie records at excruciatingly loud volumes, practise her Telemann and Wieniawski on her violin, theorise on the meanings of David Lynch movies, and trawl her favourite vintage clothing shops. You can visit her elsewhere on her music blog and at the Felicitas Collective!
