Featured Bookstagram Posts
My name is Rebecca, and I’m a book blogger, bookstagrammer, and publishing industry hopeful about to start my MA in Publishing at Oxford Brookes University!
I mostly write about:
- Books – I mainly read YA literature, science fiction, fantasy, graphic novels, contemporary literature and occasionally classics. My main weaknesses are: LGBTQA+ representation, witches, space, space witches, ensemble cast, misfits, morally grey characters, magic, dragons, happy & fluffy contemporary gays, urban magic, and anything where there’s a cute dog that doesn’t die.
- Publishing – I found it immensely helpful to hear about other people’s journeys into publishing as a career, and I aim to document my experiences throughout my course and career.
To give you an idea of my tastes, some of my auto-buy authors are:
Alice Oseman — Becky Chambers — Ben Aaronovitch — Cassandra Clare — Garth Nix — Lauren James — Laura Steven — Leigh Bardugo — Mackenzie Lee — Maggie Stiefvater — Nina LaCour — Patrick Ness — Philip Pullman — Samantha Shannon — V. E. Schwab
