I am twenty something English and Publishing graduate who hails from Vancouver, Canada.
My passion for reading started at a young age with Archie Comics and The Magic Tree House series and has only grown since, expanding to an obsession with all things Young Adult, Adult Historical Fiction, Graphic Novels, New Adult, Romance, Women’s Fiction, Literary Fiction and more.
When I don’t have a book in hand, you can find me hiking, picking out my next tattoo, or enjoying the outdoors. I love fairy tales, things of whimsy and gorgeous prose, everything Outlander and Scotland, anything turquoise and Hippo’s. Always Hippo’s.
Swept Away By Books is my little area of the internet where I get to gush about the books that I love, complain about the ones that I didn’t and talk about anything else going on in the book world! My inspiration for the name of the blog came from William Joyce’s The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. It is a fabulous children’s book and one of my favourites, and I strongly suggest you go read it.
