Hello! I’m Bron, and I have been obsessed with reading for as long as I can remember – and I think talking about books might just be the next best thing. I live in a book-filled home in Canberra with my husband, young daughter, and our two cats.
I mostly read fiction, young adult fiction, and LOTS of picture books - my daughter is a book worm too! I read across a mix of genres including contemporary/literary fiction, sci-fi and fantasy, and have recently become a bit obsessed with reading about the lives and relationships of ‘ordinary’ women – especially female friendship. While I mostly read relatively new releases I am trying to catch up on some classics too.
I will take any little opportunity to read during the day, no matter how brief – I read on the bus, when I’m out for coffee, even when I’m waiting in a line, or cooking dinner. But I have to admit that my absolute favourite way to read is to set aside a couple of hours, turn off the tv, light a candle, and curl up with a giant cup of tea. There is just something so indulgent about the simple act of allowing myself to get lost in a book like that, and for some reason I feel like adding a special mug of tea and a candle (and probably a snack too!) elevate it to almost a kind of meditation for me – so relaxing!
I’m really excited to be working with the team at The Bookish Escape Crate, and I can’t wait to share my thoughts on their books with you each month!
If you’d like to keep up with more of my bookish adventures you can find me writing about books and my reading life on my blog Bookish Bron. I also love sharing photos of my latest and favourite reads on Instagram @BookishBron.
