About & Contact

Hi! I’m Kirstie and I’m a book-a-holic. I live in Australia and studied History and the Italian language at university. I used to work for Disney and now I’m back home to write my own story! I love to read all kinds of books but particularly historical fiction, YA, and fantasy. I can’t wait to talk books with you!

What I Review

I review all the books that I read – this is what I love doing most!

My review are spoiler-free unless otherwise stated. I post all of my reviews on Goodreads prior to publishing them here (so if you’re really keen, check out my Goodreads profile).

What I Post

I post book reviews, discussion posts, reviewing tips, and every now and then you might be lucky and see a giveaway!

My monthly feature:

Past to Paper

{ See the original post }

Past to Paper is my own original monthly feature that combines my love of history with books. Each month I do one feature on a certain historical period or topic and discuss its presence (or lack thereof) in literature.

  1. It’s nice to meet you Kirstie! πŸ˜€ I love to read historical fiction, YA, and fantasy too! Those are basically my faves….

    Another reason why I’m commenting on here is because I am the Slikerin Head of House for the Blogwarts event which you have signed up for, and I wanted to know if you will still be participating πŸ™‚
    We completed our first tasks, and are expecting the results today. The 2nd task will also be announced, and we could really use all the help we can get. Only 3 of us have been really active! And it hurts to see Slikerin struggling like this.

    If you find that you no longer have time or the interest, please let me know! I won’t be mad! I’m just trying to get a headcount on all of the Slikerins who were sorted and will be participating! πŸ™‚ Here are the links you will need if you do intend to participate:


    Also, please disregard this if you HAVE been active! I haven’t matched the usernames up to the bloggers quite yet!

    Thanks and I hope to see you around! xoxo

    1. Hi Flavia!! I’m so sorry I hadn’t been active πŸ™ˆ I actually had no idea everything had begun because I hadn’t heard anything back since originally going through the sorting. I didn’t even realise I was in Slikerin! More than happy to get involved though!

      1. Okay that’s awesome! And yeah WordPress failed to inform people that they were tagged! So I’m going around and finding everyone individually!

        I’m so glad to hear that you’ll be involved! πŸ˜€

        Also, we won the first task! So you’re joining the winning team! πŸ˜‰ Haha
