Hi! My name is Bella and I am a twenty seven year old bookworm from Brisbane, Australia. I own two cats, I drink way too much tea and have an obsession with monochromatic activewear. I’ve been a book lover since I was a teenager and as a result I own a small fortune in books which my friends often tell me could double as a library – they usually treat it as such. When I’m not reading, taking photos or pampering myself with my excessive amounts of beauty products I can be found watching a Harry Potter movie (Go, Go, Gryffindor!) or shopping with my Grandma.
Here are a quick few facts to help us get to know one another better: I’m a book fanatic (obviously) and I currently own over 330 books. I’m obsessed with fairy tales. I’m a professional photographer and own my own photography business. I hate having my photo taken. When I’m nervous, I talk a lot. I can’t sit still for long periods of time. I’m a serious procrastinator. I love Frank Sinatra. I’m a vegan. Grey is my favourite colour. I’m a Potterhead.
Bookish Bella originally started as a way to share my love of books and a place for me to point people too when I got asked to recommend books to people. I constantly get asked for opinions and recommendations on books so I thought, why not review them? Books are a big part of my life and I love introducing people to great stories that they will fall in love with as much as I have. Over the last few years it has evolved from a sometimes hobby, to something more substantial – and will hopefully continue to grow.
Recently I’ve decided to branch out from my love of book blogging and turn this blog into something more. As with many people I think, 2016 was a year of lows and this year I have decided, is the year of me. I’m going to do things that make me happy, that better my life. My health and happiness are my goal this year and what better way to keep me on track than to blog about it? Fitness, Food, Books, Fun and just life in general – that’s what this blog is going to be all about. xx
