After the stresses and commitments at university, I am finally free to launch this blog! I am so excited to spend the summer writing about books and literature and meeting other blogger and readers before I starting my masters degree in publishing.
I created a book blog on tumblr a number of years ago so that I could become a part of the
reading community and have since made some wonderful friends and read a bunch of books I might not have heard of without the recommendations of fellow booklrs. Now, I have decided to start a blog here on WordPress and intend to post an original article once a week.
Here are a few facts about me:
- My name is Lauren and I live in England
- I will be graduating from the University of Huddersfield this summer. The last three years studying music has been amazing, here is a picture of our university choir and orchestra performing Mozart’s Requiem in 2013:
- I play piano and attempt to sing, but I prefer musicology over performance
- Books have taken over my home
- I am an aspiring writer and I have an amazing writing buddy called Ebie, here we are editing the first drafts of our novels:
- My star sign is Cancer
- Dystopian/Post-apocalyptic genres are my favourite
- I am currently volunteering for Derby Book Festival and was also a steward at the Huddersfield Literary Festival earlier this year
- The publishing industry fascinates me and I will be a guinea pig on the new publishing masters degree at Derby University in September
- My favourite books are Carrie by Stephen King, Across the Universe trilogy by Beth Revis, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, and I am really enjoying The 100 by Kass Morgan at the moment!
So, that’s about it. Thank you for reading my first post!
