Some of you guys may know me from tumblr, or twitter, or instagram, or even from my old WordPress blog. I had that one up for a year or two before school overwhelmed me and I migrated to tumblr for good. I’ve had my booklr for a little over three years now, and it was great, for a while. Now that I am finished my undergrad and am working towards a publishing certificate, I miss the structure of a WordPress site. But I wanted it to be a little more official, and a little more professional than before. So here I am!
I’ll be posting book reviews, maybe some movie reviews, my general thoughts on situations and controversies concerning the book industry and other media I feel passionate about, and posting fun things about any bookish or nerdy outings I go on (such as book signings and festivals). I will try my hardest to post as regularly as possible, and go for at least one post a week.
Ten Facts About Me:
- I live in Toronto, was born in Brazil, and am a very proud Canadian.
- I currently study at Ryerson in the Publishing certificate program.
- I worked at a bookstore for 3 years, and learned a lot about book selling, book buying, and the industry as a whole.
- I also gained a bit of a penchant for buying books for aesthetic value (“but they’re so prettyyy,” I tell my crying bank account).
- I have been known to go on furious rants about a variety of things,
- namely whitewashing, and sexism, and society in general.
- My favourite book genre is probably YA Fantasy, but I’ll read almost anything.
- I’m a comic book nerd,
- a trekkie,
- and I only collect Funko Pops of female characters.
