My name is Emma (AKA bluebookbelle) and I am trying to get a job in book publishing! I have a Master degree in publishing, and an undergraduate degree in English Literature and English language.
I love reading, and I like intellectual conversations about literature and many other things. I like blogging about developments in the publishing industry and matters concerning the Digital Revolution, but also reviewing the books i have read.
I read whatever I’m in the mood for but that generally means:
- Young Adult fiction
- a bit of crime
- the odd classic
- dystopian/utopian fiction
- the very occasional chick lit
- glossy coffee table books (mainly arty or architectural ones!)
I am also into translated fiction, after having written on the subject for my Masters dissertation, and I definitely think we should be reading more of this! I also have an interest in languages, and am trying to improve my French and German skills!
In my spare time, I review book manuscripts for a small publisher, which is interesting as I get something different each time!
I’m quite pleased that Jo Fletcher Books published one of my book reviews on their website! Review of Handling The Undead
