About meBibliophile living in Melbourne, Australia. I love everything about books and reading. I write my own book blog called Carpe Librum where I regularly review books, run giveaways and interview authors and I'd love you to drop by. I also enjoy collecting bookmarks if anyone would like to swap their duplicates.

About my libraryI read a combination of review books, owned books from my ever increasing TBR and the occasional library book. I'm aiming to read 70 books in 2019 and am participating in 3 reading challenges.

Here is my rating scale:

***** Absolutely loved it, excellent read, highly recommended
**** Excellent read, would definitely recommend this one
*** Good read (most books fall into this category for me).
** Not a good read, didn't really enjoy this one
* Terrible read, don't bother
