Rilla's Book List

Rilla (she/her) was born and raised in Columbia, Missouri and is the youngest of three siblings. Though she has lived her whole life in Columbia, her dream is to end up in New York, eating bagels and drinking iced coffee every morning. She is currently a junior in high school who is dedicated to graduate college with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts. Rilla is a lover of fiction, mystery, and is always up for a good romance. If she's not scrapbooking or sewing a new project, she is most likely sitting outside, reading her favorite books.
