About Us

You’re Killing.Us is a review blog for fantastical fiction, of both the YA and adult variety. We review comics, sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and even non-fiction every now and then, but most often we’re adrift in a sea of terrible paranormal YA.

Here at You’re Killing.Us, we trade in long, detailed, and occasionally angry reviews, because we never unlearned the essay-writing format they taught us in high school, and besides, don’t you deserve all of the dirty details about why a book is good or bad, anyway? Yeah, we agree.

Our logo was drawn by the incredibly talented Becky! You can pay her to make your own lovely doodles here.

You’re Killing.Us is also a partner of PapercutsPodcast.com, a bi-weekly/monthly/whenever podcast on YA and YA accessories. Cyna is a regular participant/editor, and Kayla is frequent guest.
