Hello and welcome to Bookmark Your Thoughts, my little corner of the Internet for blogging about books and sharing my literature knowledge to the world! Coming into life in 2017, Bookmark Your Thoughts was created with the intent to post frequent book reviews on a variety of genres and age categories. With a passion for reading and love of learning, the goal of this blog is to foster book discussions and provide a safe place for any bookworm to share their thoughts.
With the desire to splurge on books rather than toys as a child, it’s no surprise I became the perfect definition of a bookworm. Firstly, my name is Jenna. I’m a tea drinking bibliophile living it up in Ottawa, ON – the capital of Canada.
As noted, the major focus for this blog is book reviews with an assortment of fun and interesting other posts – within and beyond the realm of literature. You can find more on Bookmark Your Thoughts on Tumblr, the companion blog full of exquisite book photography and delightful miscellaneous photos.
Types of literature I cherish are children’s literature, fantasy, Shakespearean literature, and Victorian literature – though I read an abundance of other genres. Authors close to my heart are Philip Pullman, Kelley Armstrong, Edgar Allan Poe, and Ernest Hemingway…no, I won’t choose only one!
A little about my mundane life?
My roommate and I live in a cozy little apartment right near the Rideau Canal (we’re basically the poster children for Ikea). Recently, I completed a master’s degree in Library and Information at Western University. Now, I’m a Metadata Specialist at Statistics Canada. The dream is to become an Academic Librarian or work for Library and Archives Canada, though I do really enjoy my current profession.
Beyond the realm of reading, my hobbies include trying new teas (yes…this is a hobby), nature walking, yoga, rollerblading and music. All in all, I basically live a rather mundane life and live vicariously through the novels I read. If you would like to know more, please see my FAQ page on my Tumblr.
Please feel free to contact me regarding book review suggestions, blog challenges you’d like to see, bookish posts you’re interested in reading, or if you simply wish to connect! I love talking about books and greatly appreciate receiving feedback in order to improve Bookmark Your Thoughts book blog!
