Hi, I’m Brett and I’m a 26 year old guy living in Queensland, Australia. I started this blog back in 2011 after my friend, Brittany (Nice Girls Read Books), opened my eyes to enormous world of reading was missing. I don’t think I had picked up a book other than a Charmed or Sabrina tv tie-in before then. That’s changed quite a bit. I enjoy YA as it’s exciting, inventive and usually has a kick-ass lead. My shelves are now filled with YA books, many that I haven’t read that I one day hope to get to. I went through a binge where I bought practically everything that had a girl in a dress on the front of it. Hopefully, some of them are good, though I’m finding some of them quite hard to get through now as my tastes have changed quite a bit…
When I’m not reading, I’m probably off binge watching the backlog of anime on my shelves. I loved Nana and Samurai Flamenco—oh, and Princess Jellyfish was great too! I’m also a kpop addict. I think I made the switch from American music back around the time I started blogging. BigBang, 4Minute and 2NE1 are just a few that I can’t get enough of.
I try and read as often as I can, though it’s hard when you get stuck on a book that’s just not working for you. I’m one of those people that has to finish things, so I try my hardest to make it to the end. My favourite genres have long included urban fantasy and the paranormal, but I’m really getting into contemporaries. I need something that hooks me and I’ve found that these kinds of books usually do. Of course, that doesn’t mean I’ll love everything, but I try and steer myself towards books that I think I will.
You may notice my guest reviewer, Joseph, popping in from time to time. He’s a lover of the classics first, but he picks up the occasional YA. I think that brings a different perspective to his reviews.
