Caidyn (he/him/his; aroace) is a cofounder of BW Reviews. He reads a little bit of everything, but primarily historical nonfiction, fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, and horror. He avoids romance and YA contemporary. Caidyn runs the Instagram account and his Goodreads account can be found here. He also is an affiliate with Book of the Month’s YA box! Want to treat Caidyn? His Amazon wishlist is here and he also has a Ko-Fi account!

Caidyn has a BA in psychology from Rockhurst University and is currently getting a master’s in social work from the University of Kansas. In his free time, he reads and plays with his two mini Australian shepherds, Eli and Ava.

Caidyn’s rating system:

★★★★★ = Loved it
★★★★ = Really liked it
★★★ = Liked it
★★ = It was okay
★ = DNF/hated it



Chantel (she/her; queer) is the other founder of BW Reviews. She doesn’t post as much on the blog anymore, but she is the one who runs our BW Reviews twitter. She’s pretty funny. Go check it out. When she manages to finish a book, she usually gravitates toward YA but really, she will read anything gay.

Her favorite things are Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Killing Eve, and Broad City. She has a gorgeous cat named Watson, and it’s only a matter of time before he eats her face.
