Me and my Personality:
Hi! I’m Kat (though I also will respond to KitKat, KB or Kit 😊 – she/her). I am a 20 something UK book lover who has adored reading since I was a child. My favourite genre has always been fantasy (I found it the easiest to escape into) but have now grown into loving sci-fi, historical fiction, horror etc…
I am a physically disabled woman, a wheelchair user, which is partly why I love to see diversity in books that I read – for all people. Reading has always been my escape and has become a hobby of mine. I love it so much I went on to study English for my A-Levels (a choice that paid off in many ways), which is where my love for Gothic literature was sparked! Now, I am a University student who runs this blog in the hope the I can spread more information on books I love and share opinions with people on books they also loved.
Other than reading, I have a fair few interests. Firstly, I am a huge nerd and am in many fandoms from the big three (SuperWhoLock), to Harry Potter, Fantastic Beasts, Merlin, GOT, Homestuck, Marvel, DC, StarWars, LotR, Disney, Hunger Games, Mortal Instruments/Shadow Hunters, and many others! Secondly, I enjoy Anime’s like Deathnote, Full metal Alchemist Brotherhood, Attack on Titan, Angel Beats, and more. Lastly, I love to draw, write, research (I enjoy social sciences and debates), and watch musicals (and sing along of course).
I also love my family, animals and friends – all of whom I nerd out with about books and fandoms, of course the animals are less enthusiastic.😂
Reviews and books:
I am a UK reviewer who mainly reviews books from Netgalley, and also will do so for publishers or authors, but will occasionally review books I own or have been gifted/bought myself. To see what I review go to my Review Policy page.
If you are a UK reader then you should check out Readers First ( a site operated by NetGalley UK Ltd) and use my referral code to create an account: dc2150aa746f51e28 – we both get 100 points if you do this which can go towards a new free book ! (I am not affiliated with the site or endorsed by it- I am just a user of it)
I try not to post anything political on my book review platforms (as this is a separate set up from my personal accounts). However, as I said previously, I am all for diversity and look for it in my books. I also support minorities and their representation in books! I’m an ally to the LGBTQ+ community and try to promote inclusivity for all minority groups. If you feel I have been insensitive or have used inaccurate information on my blog/social platforms then please use my Contact page and let me know. I try my best to use the correct terminology and information when writing my reviews but if I fail to do so please tell me – I am open to learning and being taught about what I have gotten wrong!
However, if a book I am reviewing has political themes then I will discuss them in my reviews -in a respectful way.
