Simply put –
I love books. I love words. I love reading words. I love finding more words to read. I love sharing those words with people.
I have always been a big romance reader. This started from the time I found my mum’s naughty Jilly Cooper novels at the back of the bookcase around the tender age of 13. Since then, my tastes have changed and I have dipped in and out of different genres, but I always come back to romance. Always.
I’m from the UK and have recently moved to Melbourne, Australia. At the moment we are going into Autumn but the rest of the world is excited about Spring. I still find this a little strange and can feel really disorientated about it at times. In my late 20s, I have a varied background that includes Journalism, Marketing, Publishing and a hell of a lot of temp work. I have recently decided that I would like to become a youth/community services Librarian. So it’s time to get back to school…
I am currently in the process of putting together The Urban Book Thief, mainly as a pedestal for writing book reviews, yet also as a holy shrine to worship the book gods. My plan at the moment is to contribute something to the blog everyday (so no pressure then Sabrina…)
I love to read mainly urban fantasy, paranormal and fantasy books. Though, I will occasionally dip into historical and contemporary romance – only occasionally mind! And usually if they feature a tall, dark, kilt wearing stranger…
The plan is to start off fairly small and work my way up into offering things such as interviews, special features etc. Hopefully being as organic and painless as possible 😉
I love to hear from people. It’s the incredible sharing that goes on at Goodreads that has fed my addiction to the point that I needed to create this blog. So as I’m all about sharing and caring – please share too.
