I’m Jemima – a little UK based bookworm – who runs this blog. The majority of this blog revolves around books – reviews, wrap-ups and that sort of thing. However, do expect to see the odd post on musicals/theatre here and there, and perhaps at some point soon some history posts as I’ve always adored history and I’m in the process of rekindling my love for it. So basically, whatever if capturing my interest will appear on this blog in one form or another.
I try and upload at least weekly – usually on a Sunday morning – but when I have more time I will try and upload twice in the week.
Some Quick Questions Answered:
Where does your blog name/username come from? The trilogy which first really got me into reading was the Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare and in the first book – Clockwork Angel – the protagonist says “One must always be careful of books (…) for words have the power to change us,” and when it came to thinking of a username, that line jumped out at me. Although it is not a direct quote, Be Aware of Books is very much inspired by it.
Favourite Book(s)? My go-to answer for my favourite book is Vicious by V.E. Schwab. However other favourites include The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee, The Importance of Being Earnest and Other Plays by Oscar Wilde and Things a Bright Girl Can Do by Sally Nicholls but you can have a look at my Goodreads favourite shelf for an updated list.
Favourite Musical(s)? Out of the shows I’ve been fortunate to see: Everybody’s Talk about Jamie and Kinky Boots. Other shows which I adore the score for include: Mean Girls, Something Rotten! and Faslettos.
What Do I Do Other than Blogging? I am currently a student in the UK studying Creative Writing and English, and occasionally I will blog about my experiences. I’m also partial to the odd video game, for example Civilisation VI and I adore the Life is Strange franchise. I also have other interests but I tend to keep them on the down low – sorry!
Favourite book genres? I tend to read A LOT of YA contemporary and fantasies but I am trying to move away from the YA genre. I also enjoy historical books (especially Victorian era) – both fiction and non-fiction but I am essentially open to any recommendations.
