Hello! My name is Sietske and I am 23 years old and live in the Netherlands. In my daily life I am busy working, reading and writing reviews. My favorite genres are thrillers, crime and fantasy. I mainly read young adult books, but I also love to read adult fantasy or middle-grade.
I have received my love for books in my childhood. You could find me every week in the library where I spent more than an hour looking around for books. At that time my preference was also for fantasy and crime books.
“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.”
Unfortunately as I got older and ended up in high school, I had little to no time for reading. I often read when we went on vacation, but that was it. Eventually I ended up in a reading slump for more than 5 years. But then I discovered bookstagram in December 2018, where people share their love for books. So many new books I had never heard of. This made me very curious and I bought a few books. My love for reading soon returned and I finally decided to write reviews.
If you are wondering why there are no posts on my bookstagram before 2020, that’s because I decided to take down all my old posts and start over with a new theme.
Half a year after starting my instagram, I was asked if I wanted to review a book. I was amazed and never expected that a publisher would ever approach me. We are now more than a year later and I have been able to work with great publishers. I am thankful for this every day!
In August 2019 I decided to open my own free blog on WordPress. Soon I wanted to open my own website and this happened not much later, namely on October 25, 2019.
