I’ve been a prolific fantasy and science-fiction reader, all my life. In my teens, I read so frequently, and excitedly, that I ran out of books to read from my local library. I have worked in Primary Schools and school libraries for over a decade and love Children’s picture books. I enjoy trivia, photography, and am currently exploring easy-cook low-carb sweets, podcasts, and 3D software. In the last few years I have been finding audiobooks (from our app LIBBY) and podcasts to be useful while I walk, or drive in the car.
I am a self-confessed bookaholic, podcast and audio book participant. I enjoy devouring a variety of fiction and non-fiction literature, manly contemporary Australian novels and memoir biographies. As for non-fiction , I enjoy learning about health and wellbeing, philosophy, arts and craft and more recently gardening and sustainable DIY projects.
I enjoy watching a range of classic movies, French films and love a good British crime drama series .
When selecting picture books with my son, we enjoy seeking out books that are humorous, thoughtful and of course have cute illustrations.
Outside of books, I love nestling in nature and supporting local artists by going to see live music, theatre, dance and art installations.
Growing up with parents who read and a mum who worked in bookshops I was always going to be a reader. I'm willing to give just about anything a go but I love Sci-Fi, Fantasy & Children’s books.
I enjoy reading a wide range of junior, young adult and adult fiction. I have two young boys so I have loved reading aloud to them too!
Time is precious, so audio books and podcasts are often in my ears after work while vacumming, cooking etc. There is usually a cookbook or three on my bedside plus books on craft, travel or wrangling kids.
Love reading, but also a big consumer of all types of media especially video games, tv shows and movies. I also love to travel and forever planning the next trip.
Reading is life – make it as rich as you can!
I always have a large TBR (to be read) pile of books on the bedside table.
I read a lot of Non-Fiction, knowledge is power! Pop-science, cultural history & philosophy are top of my list. I love music and I love getting out and losing myself in nature. I also enjoy Graphic novels and anything strange, mainly Horror and Sci-fi.
I enjoy a wide range of reading. Namely, historical fiction, young adult novels, romance, sagas, Australian authors, dystopian and fairy tale adaptations. I also enjoy many TV series and movies.
I love to read and constantly find new authors. I love to watch TV and films including anime & Bollywood movies. I come from a Fiji Indian background and I speak the Hindu language.
New Adult is my current Favorite genre (New Adult fiction bridges the gap between Young Adult and Adult genres), My special talent is finding books BEFORE they Hit Booktok. I also enjoy a YA Fantasy that has a bit of romance and a hint of betrayal or even better fae and monsters! I also have a guilty pleasure of reading my favourite books over and over again.
I have a keen interest in history, particularly Australian History and genealogy. Always happy to chat about books!
As a busy mum of two, I like to listen to audio books and podcasts, as I can do more than one thing at once!
I really enjoy crime fiction/ true crime, contemporary romance, and modern mysteries.
My favourite authors are JD Kirk, Christian White, Liane & Nicola Moriarty, and Beth O'Leary.
I enjoy reading from a wide range of genres but I do have a soft spot for thrillers, historical romances and anything that makes me laugh out loud! If it's written well, I'm happy!
I am a cheerful & creative chatterbox. Reading enables me to live several lifetimes vicariously & learn about people from all walks of life. I love sharing my favourite stories to those of all ages.
