Hi, my name is Catherine (I prefer Cat). I am 28 years old and live in Wollongong/Sydney Australia. I am a reading enthusiast from way back and have a huge habit of hoarding things such as books. I started this blog because I really felt that I had lots of creative juices that needed to flow somewhere.
My favourite books growing up were always the ones my third-grade teacher read to us on Friday afternoons. It sparked my love and now I love all genres of stories and discovering new stories and worlds.
Currently I work in Marketing and PR for a video games distribution company in Balmain East. I have a background in Sociology and Criminology but gave that up to work in an industry that I love. So, I have been working in video games marketing for four years now and I love it more every day!
When I am not reading I am watching Netflix or Stan catching up on my favourite TV shows such as Younger, Homicide Hunter or Forensic Files (my partner and I have an obsession with crime investigation shows).
Here are a few things about my blog:
- YA is a completely new genre for me! So please be patient with me while I catch up with all the amazing books.

My rating system
★★★★★ – I absolutely loved this! Everything was brilliant!
★★★★☆ – There were one or two things I didn’t like but otherwise, it was a really great read!
★★★☆☆ – The story was ok! But there were a few things that were missing and some things that I didn’t enjoy
★★☆☆☆ – I didn’t enjoy this at all, too many things that I didn’t like and the story wasn’t what I thought it would be!
★☆☆☆☆ – I couldn’t finish this book! (this will rarely happen though. If I rate a book this low I will definitely explain why!)
