12. ALPHA reader | my solo book club

ALPHA reader | my solo book club Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Hello, I am Danielle, I could go really far back and say that I have loved reading from the moment that my mum started buying me Little Golden Books at the Coles check-out. My blog is nothing fancy. I prefer Spartan over flash, and I am more concerned with writing long, sincere and rambling reviews than aesthetics. This is just a little list of pointers I try to write by, based on my own preferences, likes and dislikes.

A Book Escape Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Hi, I'm Alana. I live in Melbourne, Australia, and my life is completely taken over by being a mum to 4 young children, and one thing I love to do for myself and my self-care is reading. So to give me something else to do in the little free time I get I decided to blog reviews on the books I read. Everyone knows you can't have things 100% to yourself so even though I'll primarily be blogging about books, a few blogs of the kids might sneak in there.
