Headshot of Margaret Kingsbury

I’m a contributing editor and book reviewer for BuzzFeed Books and Book Riot. I curate the twice-weekly BuzzFeed Books newsletter, and at Book Riot, I write one of their twice-weekly children’s newsletters, The Kids Are All Right. My other pieces — which mainly focus on books, disability, and parenting — have appeared in School Library Journal, StarTrek.com, Parents, The Lily, The Nashville Scene, SFWA, Earth Island Journal, and more. I’m the co-creator of Baby Librarians, a children’s book review website; come follow my reviews on Instagram and Facebook. My short stories and poems have been published in Abyss & Apex, Devilfish Review, Pulp Literature, and Nonbinary Review, among other publications. I taught university English for four years and worked in a giant used bookstore for 12. My family and I live in Nashville, TN, where I can be found chasing my preschooler, reorganizing my bookshelves, hiking, and naming all the birds I see. In my free time, I write picture books and I’m working on a sci-fi novel.

If you’re contacting me about a book to review, please note that I do not review self-published books. Otherwise — whether it’s a small or large pressed book — I’m happy to consider it for possible review. I mainly review fantasy, science fiction, fairy tales, horror, and children’s books of all genres.
