A Haven for Book Lovers

I am just a girl who loves reading and talking about books



WWW 3I started reading when I was still young. It started with the fairy tale storybooks and I had them all, Cinderella, Snow White, Goldilocks, Jack and the Beanstalk. I used to read and reread those book and guard them.

Then I discovered novels and started reading Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley series, Hardy Boys and Ngugi Wa Thiong’o.

I have been reading since and so I decided to start this blog to talk about my favorite books.Occasionally, I post short stories and travel reviews. Nice to meet you all.

Happy Reading!

    Hello, I was wondering if you can help my promote some of my short stories by posting them on your blog. Thanks.

    • Diana
      January 13, 2017

      Hey,I’m sorry but not sure if I can help.I think you may need to feed blogs that do promotions.Mine doesn’t have much traffic and I have never done promotional posts.I also see that you have a blog so how about you try do it then promote your posts on social media?Also try find other bloggers and interact with them.That usually helps

    Hi Diana, do you have an email address where I may contact you? I’ve published a women’s fiction book, Poets, Artists, Lovers: A Novel, which I think you may like. I would really appreciate it if you could take a look at it and see if you’re interested to review it. The info is on my blog at http://theartdive.wordpress.com

    Hi nice to meet you, you sound very similar to me. I’m an aspiring writer/author. Currently working on my FIRST short story and my FIRST novel. The story will be about mental health and easing awareness I hope. Then the novel will crime procedures and a serial killer thriller. Will keep an extra eye on your blog for your short stories and of course your book reviews which looks like you like similar books to me..

      Well that wasn’t a good start.. not long been awake, I really shouldn’t read blogs when I’m half asleep!!

      **Mental health and Raising awareness, I hope.**

      ***Then the novel will be about crime procedures and a serial killer thriller. ***

      ****I will keep an eye on your blog, especially your short stories and . Of course, your book reviews look and sounds good but, I think you and I have the same taste in genre.****

    Good morning Diana,
    I would like to ask if you would be willing to review my historical fiction novel Twiceborn. Twiceborn is the first book in a trilogy called Secrets of Versailles.

    Short synopsis:
    17th century France is on the brink of war but intrigue and jealous plots at the court of Versailles threaten to destroy the kingdom from within.

    Book trailer:

    Let me know if you’re interested. You can email me at jprobinsonbooks@gmail.com.

    Thanks, Diana, for your time.
