About the Blogger

"I was the kind of child who'd always looked for fairies dancing on the grass. I wanted to believe in witches, wizards, ogres, giants and enchanted spells. I didn’t want all of the magic taken out of the world by scientific explanation" FLOWERS IN THE ATTIC, V.C. ANDREWS


I'm Samantha Kilford, an nineteen-year-old Filipino-British writer and blogger who lives in rainy Wales.

I've always loved books and writing since I was a toddler. Although, I'd like to think my work has improved a lot since I was four. Those stories that are buried away in boxes in the attic were cringe-worthy, but have played a key role in my love for literature and setting up this blog.

I'm proud of how this blog has grown and that I am able to be offered the chance to read so many excellent books and be a part of so many exciting events and releases.

Whether it's a request to review a book or if you'd just like a chat, then feel free contact me. I promise I'm super friendly!

I am a Book Depository affiliate which means any time you click one of those Book Depository links in my posts and purchase a book, or if you follow one of the 'Buy Book' links in my posts and buy it, then I get a very, very small commission from the sale. So, if you're about to go on your next book haul and would like to help feed your friendly blogger over here then please follow this link on your next purchase!

When I'm not reviewing and reading, you can find me writing my own silly novels and screenplays that are yet to see the light of day. In 2017, I founded Books By Females, a Tumblr-based platform to share, support and showcase both classic and modern literature by female authors. To find out more about Books By Females, you can visit the site here.

You can also keep up with my professional ventures here on LinkedIn.
