I have always loved books. I remember saving up my allowance as a child to buy the latest books on my reading list, and carrying at least 4 books around at all times.
I started reviewing books for an online arts & entertainment magazine (Press+1) in university, and eventually became Books Editor for the site. It was an amazing opportunity for me to learn the ropes of book reviewing, and I loved every moment of it. I later decided to start my own blog devoted exclusively to books – but this time I wanted to be able to review everything I read, both new and previously released. Enter Backlist Books.
I review all sorts of books – from more mature Young Adult to classics to contemporary literature to erotica and books on sexuality to travel and current affairs.
About me: I hold a BA with a joint major in Communications and Anthropology. I currently work in Communications for a non-profit and manage social media for the organization.
