I challenged myself to read 50 new-to-me books in 2010 and keep a record of what I read and what I thought. My reviews were taking over my personal blog so I decided to start one solely dedicated to books. I review everything I read and I’ll read pretty much anything recommended to me!
I’m a writer and book addict from Sydney. I decided to combine two of my passions and Belle’s Bookshelf was born! On top of reviews, I compile fun book-related lists as well as feature products and other interesting bookish things I find in my travels on the web.
Reading (mostly) romance books down under.
Book to the Future is more than just a blog: it’s a journey through time. For the next two-and-a-bit years, I’ll be reading and reviewing one book every week, risking life and limb to read great works of literature in the year they were first published. My journey began in the year 1900 – every week since, I move forward one year in the future, reviewing a book that first hit the shelves in that year. Confusing? Possibly. But if you like reading, time travel and nice, hot cups of tea, you’ll love Book to the Future.
Book Reviews & News
I’m a reader, a book-lover, a former bookseller, a librarian and a writing student (at Swinburne Uni). I’ve been working in the Australian book industry for close to ten years, currently as a book selector for libraries. The impulse to start this site came from a desire to join the conversation, and to hopefully start new ones. I read widely, and my interests are many and varied, though I tend to mostly read contemporary & literary fiction, short stories & essays, narrative non-fiction (history, science, current affairs, natural history) and biographies.

Jess Just Reads is a book review blog for all literary genres, from young adult to the classics.
I enjoy a variety of genre and read based on mood. I enjoy unique, bizarre reads but I also like literary, horror, fantasy and other “usual” genre. I love working with indie authors to promote their work.
The title Knowledge Lost was adapted from the title Paradise Lost by John Milton. I decided on this title to symbolise the fact that there is so much to learn and so much knowledge out there that previously was lost to me. As I discover and learn new things, I realise there are so much more to learn so this blog keeps growing and growing. A few years ago I started Literary Exploration as a dedicated book blog, I did this because my passion was always book blogging and I felt it would be a good idea to have this blog separate to the rest of my blogging.
