About Me

I am science-fiction and fantasy obsessed, book reviewing, cat loving Australian nurse living in London (pic is of my Mum’s dog Bear as I still don’t have my own cat – its a matter of time…)

In 2020 I began requesting proof copies of appealing books in exchange for honest reviews. I found I really loved reviewing, so I’ve recently joined the Twitter, Bookstagram and book-blogging community where I have met some fantastic people!

In addition to upcoming releases, I review and recommend some of my favourite reads from my bookshelf, especially great reads that feature representation and diversity.
