Hi, I'm the blogger behind Rebecca-Books

I'm Rebecca, I'm 19 years-old and originally from London, although I'm currently living and studying in Bournemouth. 

When I'm not reading or blogging, I'm at university studying Communication and Media, finding any antique or vintage shops (I love anything old) or more likely, eating.

I mostly read Young Adult books as I think that is one of the most varied and interesting genres around at the moment. Although, I do read some adult fiction novels. Some of my favourite books are The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen, The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green and The Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness.

The Blog

If there is one thing that many people and I have realised about myself in my adolescence, it is that I love books. And always have. 

The appeal of a bookshop is sometimes too hard to resist, the majestic bookcases full of every variety of book, the independence of choosing what YOU want and most of all, that smell of thousands of books in one place. Those that love books should understand what I mean. 

I started Rebecca-Books on 17th February 2010 with a quick, really bad review of a Sarah Dessen book. I only got serious about blogging in July/August of the same year after finding more book blogs than I originally thought existed. 

Rebecca-Books has seen some ups and downs both personally and blogging wise especially in the last few years when I've been studying for my A-levels and starting university. Four years on, I'm still so glad I started the blog and I've learnt a lot in the process. I now know when a new blog is going to last (which makes me sound like a blogging veteran, which I am not).

I, like many, love blogging and book-reading. I love the smell of new and old books, be it freshly printed paper or the musty smell of age. I have a fear of buying books with my own money in case I don't like the book. I also feel like there is not enough time in life to read the hundreds and hundreds of books I would love to read. 

As of 27th January 2014: 
149,747 page views in the entire history of the blog from 10 different countries, mostly from the UK and US)
