About Us

Just Us Books has undergone many incarnations over the years. It started out as a group of girls who came together through the power of the internet to gossip about fictitious worlds and characters as if they were real people.

This blog is an extension of that group, a place where we can share book information with our friends, and hopefully pick up some new friends along the way. Our goal is to post reviews, host giveaways, and participate in as many things book related as catch our fancy.

We hope to have some of our friends from the JUB group on to post every now and again when we can pester them enough to, but for the most part you'll be hearing from us, Mariela and Allyson.

Mariela is a mother of two beautiful girls, and loves to read mostly young adult, adult romance and fantasy. She can be pretty picky sometimes, but she is always honest about what she thinks about a book.

Allyson is the mother of an impressively spoiled dog-daughter, and reads mostly YA and Adult Fantasy/Paranormal. She is extremely picky, and prone to dropping things just from the first two or three sentences.

If you have any questions, feel free to drop us a comment or an email! Hope you enjoy what you find in our blog!!

Allyson - allyson.christine.g@gmail.com

Mariela handles all of our blog tours, so for more information on them, or to request a feature for your book on our blog, please contact her. 

Mariela also handles all review requests, so please contact her if you would like JUBB to review your book. Please keep in mind that your book has a better chance of being chosen for a review if it is just about any genre of YA, or Adult Romance/Science Fiction/Fantasy. Allyson doesn't accept review requests because she is finicky and irritating and the second she feels like she has to do something, she immediately doesn't want to do it. It's the bane of her existence. 


  1. You girls sound like you have the exact same taste in books as me. I am a massive YA fan and especially YA fantasy so I can't wait to check out some of your reviews and hopefully get some recommendations. Also just wanted to say that I love the theme/design of your blog, so pretty and I really love the colours :)

    1. Hello! What is your goodreads page? So I can add you if that is OK.
      Allyson spends a lot of time making the page looks good, she does a good job!


  2. Oh my gosh, I'm laughing at the last two lines in this About Us. You go, Allyson!! hahahaha
