Emma’s Biblio Treasures

Hello! Welcome to my book blog.

I started blogging in August 2018 after encouragement from friends who’d seen me talking about the books I’d read on my private social media. I had never heard of Bookstagram and didn’t know that there was a whole community of book bloggers out there. I didn’t know I was about to find a place that felt like home and meet friends I know I’ll have for a lifetime.

I’ve always been a bibliophile. As a child I was a voracious reader and turned my book collection into a library that I would loan out to my stuffed animals. As I grew books were the backdrop to my life, helping shape who I am and enabling me to explore worlds I’d otherwise never see. After a number of years where I hardly read because of pain and brain fog due to chronic illness, my obsession for books was reignited when I received a kindle for Christmas in 2017. Actually, I received two. The second one my Mum bought from me for herself after she’d had the same idea as my partner. While I still struggle with pain and brain fog, I am once again a voracious reader and even with my reading slowed and both my concentration and retention impaired I have managed to read prolifically since 2018.

I love pretty much all genres, but my favourites are historical fiction and thrillers. I have a never-ending list of must-read authors but if I had to pick my favourite it would be Jodi Picoult. Some of my favourite books are Small Great Things, Flowers in the Attic, We Need To Talk About Kevin, A Time To Kill, Where The Crawdads Sing, Away with the Penguins and The Handmaids Tale.

The aim of this blog is to share my passion for books and connect with other book lovers. Please feel free to follow me on my Instagram or Twitter and come chat.
