Hype Lit is a wonderfully delicious place where books, film, and tv shows are reviewed. If you're interested in submitting a review, library program, or writing submission, feel free to send an email to We welcome book shout outs as well, so if you know of a soon to be published book, particularly one focused on African American young adult and children's literature, drop me a message. I also heartily read and review African American fiction, literature both fiction and nonfiction for adults. If you think Hype Lit should shout it out, read, and review it, please drop me a message and I look forward to being in touch with you!

Christina Vortia here, and I'm a Fabulous + Librarian = Fabularian. I'm a literature obsessed phoodie of the older millenial auntie variety. When my nose isn't in a book I write about books for Kirkus and School Library Journal. On any given day I look like a box of crayons and that's okay because I'm fabulous.


1. I am currently closed to review requests. I'll post shortly when I'm reopen to accepting books for review as well as my updated review policy.
