I am completely, totally, and utterly obsessed with all things books and reading (hence the “bookish”).


I am a law school graduate and (somewhat) new attorney (hence the “barrister”).


I am a wife to my handsome, hilarious, brilliant husband, Anthony.

Why this blog?

To collect my thoughts and ideas about the books I have read and those I want to read in one place.

To conveniently share these thoughts and ideas with my friends, fellow readers, publishers, the world!


To follow other book bloggers so I can improve the quality of my reviewing, discover new books, and make new friends.


But mostly… to spend even more time in the world of books, my favorite world to be in.

    • Haha!!! Yes, this was last year at the Supernatural Convention in Washington DC. It was one of the best days of my life :p Misha actually was really normal in person! He was super nice and we got to chat with him for a while, we asked him about his kids and he was adorable talking about them. We met Jensen first and I honestly could not breathe, he’s so beautiful. But also very nice!!! Hahaha

  8. Hi Abby,

    my name is Ivan Sivec and I am a Slovenian writer, poet and publicist. I would like to submit my first ever translated YA novel The X Factor: Confessions of a Naive Fashion Model for your review.

    The X Factor is a psychological YA novel showing the glamorous fashion world behind its less glamorous scenes. The reader is taken on a frightening journey into the world of drug addiction among teenager fashion models.

    I would be happy to send you an e-copy of my novel in return for an honest review. Please contact me at ivan.sivec.en@gmail.com

    Thank you!

    Seasonal greetings from Slovenia,
    Ivan Sivec
