Hey there! My name’s Marie, and I’m so glad to see you over here at The Bibliologist! This is a place where you’ll find book reviews that tackle quality and content, so you can find your next favorite book—that you won’t be embarrassed to talk about! I hope what you see here helps you and brightens your day (and your bookshelf).
I love north winds, thunderstorms, sassy black-haired antagonists, and books with maps. (They’re so much better, trust me.) I review books and rant about them…which naturally brought about The Bibliologist, and if it hadn’t, where would we be?
I fell in love with books when I was 11 after reading Little Women, but it wasn’t until I read Divergent a few years ago that I developed a passion for them. Or at least, that’s when I started buying them like crazy. (I tell myself it’s a good thing.)
When I’m not reading, you can find me sketching out my own very floppy story ideas, playing Chopin like a madwoman, admiring the art style of a classic Disney flick, or reorganizing my bookshelf. Again. Again.
Since I’d probably die of anxiety if you asked me what my number-one favorite book was, I’ve got a little list of all of them you can get to by clicking the button below! :)
The Bibliologist Story
The Bibliologist was started in April 2016 (on Emma Watson’s birthday, of course) under the very vague title “Girl With Whimsy” and since then, I’ve been ranting about books like no one’s business.
(I don’t think that’s a good thing. But…whatever.)
When I first started my blogging journey, I mainly posted strange nerdy rants about my favorite books (if you want to laugh, look back to my first few blog posts—they’re awful) but then I realized how utterly unhelpful those were and tried writing a book review on a limb and then I kind of ran with it.
As a reader, I always wanted a resource where I could find book reviews that talked about the content—was it an appropriate book to read? Or should I stay away from it?—while still addressing the quality of the book itself: was it really worth reading anyway? And if I couldn’t find that somewhere else, I decided to do it myself. That’s become my passion, and well. Here we are.
I’m so happy you’ve found my little corner of the internet, and I hope it brings a smile to your face!
