About Zoe
If you don’t like to read, you haven’t found the right book.”

I’m Zoe and a graduate journalist and now an Account Manager at a Digital Marketing company, who has had a passion for books since I was a little girl, ever since I was given my first Jacqueline Wilson book and since then I have absolutely loved reading.
My blog has been going for just over a year now and thanks to my love of books, I have made some amazing friends – both book bloggers and authors – and I had to privilege of meeting some of them. Damn the ones in America ;)

I love recommending books to everyone. I feel that if a book has grasped my heartstrings and made me feel every bit of emotion in that book, then I have to pimp it out and get other people to read it. Tell me what kind of book you are looking for, and I will tell you which one you should read. I get told off quite a lot by people as the books I recommend distract them from things they should be doing. That is the best part of being a book blogger – you can sympathize with each other when you cannot put a book down because it has you hooked.
I also love finding new authors to read.

New authors have a tough time getting the recognition they deserve, and as a lover of NA and self-pubbed book, I speak and pimp out a lot of indie authors – many who have become close friends of mine. Many books I have read are self-pubbed and nearly every book on my kindle is too. You could definitely say I am an indie book whore!

From being a journalism graduate, our lecturers always told us how important it was to have a brand so people can begin to recognize you. My brand is The Book Lovers and my Twitter page is also under the same name. My dream is to open up my own publishing house and no matter how long it takes, whether it’s a success or failure, I have at least attempted to fulfill my dream.

As well as posting reviews on my site, I am also a casual volunteer book reviewer on the online magazine so if you head over to their website, you can see some of my reviews on their website. (the link shows four of my reviews….I have posted seven so far)
