“I spent my life folded between the pages of books (…) My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”

So, I am a girl from London who likes books. When I read, I mainly sway towards Fantasy and YA, but I do love dipping into all different kinds of genres. I share my reviews to a collective following of over five thousand followers on my Instagram, Goodreads and blog account, all of which are under the name of faerieontheshelf with the except of my Twitter, which is faeontheshelf.

My favourite authors are:

– Donna Tartt

– Angela Carter

– Madeline Miller

– Leigh Bardugo

– V.E. Schwab

– Maggie Stiefvater

– Katherine Arden

Some fun facts:

  • The ‘faerie’ in my username doesn’t refer to the cutesy Tinkerbell-like pint-sized fairy (I am not an overly cutesy person), but rather the traditional faeries from folklore, who are known as the fair folk – think of the fae from Sarah J. Maas and Holly Black books!
  • I am a ENTP-T personality type, but I’m not so sure what that means either, really
  • I am a Slytherin (hiss hiss)
  • I own real estate in Velaris and am a happy member of the Night Court
  • I’m also a morally ambiguous Grisha Heartrender
  • If I lived in Westeros, I would fit right in as a Lady of House Tyrell
