I’m an Australian blogger who lives in Melbourne, Victoria. I have a feathered terror of a sun conure called Indy (she also likes to drink tea!). My official qualifications are a BA in Literature and Religious Studies, a BS/BioMedS in Biochemistry and Genetics (H1 Honours) and a PhD in Genetics.
I started this blog way back in 2012 because I wasn’t reading all of the novels I was buying. Now, I hardly ever buy books, and receive most of my reading material from publishers and indie authors. I also enjoy the occasional talking book borrowed from my local library.
I accept almost any genre of book for review, non-fiction included. My special interests are in fantasy (Brandon Sanderson, anyone?), queer (LGBTIQA*), young adult, mental health disorders and real-life crime, with a smattering of other genres. I generally do not review short story collections (eh, it’s average), poetry (hate it) or graphic novels (I don’t really appreciate the art enough). I am currently prioritising non-fiction books, particularly ones in business.
I review paperback books only, and I DO NOT ACCEPT EBOOKS. If you would like me to consider your novel for review purposes, please email me at:

I receive novels for no other compensation other than a free copy of the novels from:
- Allen and Unwin
- Penguin Random House
- Pantera Press
- Vivid Publishing
- Simon and Schuster
- Harlequin Publishing
- Text Publishing
