I’m a twenty-seven year old currently dividing my time between staying with my wife (and our bunny) in Belgium, and living with my parents in Yorkshire. I’m a freelancer, and I get my work through the internet, so it doesn’t matter really where exactly I am. I’m doing a course in Natural Sciences through the Open University, but again, I don’t need to be in one place for that. Books are my main hobby, though I also crochet, play video games, and do as much walking as I can fit in.
My family would probably say that books have always taken up most of my life. Anecdote: I couldn’t read until after most of the people in my class other than the dyslexic students, whereupon I went from Cat and Mouse books to The Hobbit in less than a year. I think my parents more or less gave up trying to get me to bed on time after that. They’d have had to confiscate every book in my room to stop me staying up way into the night. Sometimes they tried, but… it never stuck.
I’m still as prone to staying up all night with a book now, and even as a student much preferred that to a night of partying. So now I’ve set up this blog!
I review almost all the books I read here, including all the ARCs I receive. I’m generally very happy to take ARCs to review, but I don’t automatically agree to take every single one I’m offered — I might not be interested, or I might not feel I have time to do it justice — so if you’d like me to review your book, email me at bibliophibianbreathesbooks[at]gmail[dot]com. I will always indicate when I’m reviewing a book I’ve been sent for free in exchange for a review! But please be aware that, at the moment, I’m not taking unsolicited review copies — I’ve got a heck of a backlog! If you send me something anyway, I make no guarantees I’ll get round to it.
If you’re curious about my suitability for whatever ARC you’re thinking of offering/accepting me for, see also this post: What I read. In short: everything. Fiction, non-fiction, poetry, classics, contemporary, sci-fi and fantasy, comics, crime…
