Book Reviews

I’ve reviewed books online since starting with Writer’s Edit in 2013. Soon after, I began volunteering as a reviewer for the New South Wales Writers’ Centre and became a regular critic their blog.

I read widely and have extremely diverse book tastes, from science fiction to modern literature and everything in between.

More recently I’ve started exploring book reviews through YouTube and Instagram, sparking conversations with other readers rather than critiquing and forgetting. You’ll find my published reviews listed below.
