Contemporary/Literary Fiction

I’m a Canadian book lover who’s working my way through as many countries and books as I possibly can. I’ve recently moved to Melbourne, Australia from London, UK with The Englishman and can’t say for sure which country I’ll be living in a year from now. I sell books by day and read/eat/run voraciously by night.

I’m a reader, runner and traveller (not necessarily in that order). So this blog will probably contain musings on all three. First and foremost, I want this to be a book blog. After being inspired (read: pestered) by my boyfriend (henceforth known as The Englishman) and a fellow bookseller/lover (Tsudokinst), I’ve decided to join the book blogging community – a community I’ve been a happy voyeur of for many years now. I’m hoping to use this blog to keep a more lasting and meaningful record of the books I’ve read along with connecting with fellow book-lovers. Enjoy!

My Reading List: A Bookcrosser’s Love of Reading … And Other Book-Related Things.

This is what the title says, and normally, it’s pretty much what I do. I talk about books and reading, bookstores and other book-related things that go along with just about anyone’s reading list… to make my reading list yours. It’s very much a nice read and I ask my public questions to keep them with me – to encourage them to comment, but I don’t get many who do. I guess I have a shy crowd. My Reading List is also translatable… making it easier for anyone in the world to plug into it.

Write Note Reviews includes book reviews, author interviews, guest posts, bookish thoughts and some of my own writing. If I had to describe my favourite book genre, I’d be stuck for words. I have a pretty eclectic taste and often my mood plays a big part. I enjoy women’s contemporary fiction, crime fiction, thrillers, romance, gothic romance, children’s/young adult fiction, travel memoirs, and more. I have a particular liking for the food-related literary genre…mmmm. (That’s why I add “Bookish treat” to the end of each of my reviews, because I love the marriage of food and books!)
