“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, a twenty-one year old Filipino-British writer and reviewer currently studying English at the University of Bristol. When I’m not babbling on about books and flitting about on trains between Swansea, Bristol and my sometimes-home of London where I work in PR, I like watching Wes Anderson movies and drinking copious amounts of red wine.

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, except the Blue Peter badge-winning space pirate one I wrote when I was six #humblebrag, but they have played a key role in my love for literature and setting up this blog.

I’m proud of how much this blog has grown and that I am now 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 to chat literature, then feel free contact me. I promise I’m super friendly!
