Hi, I'm Ruby


Cheerful and sarcastic introvert. Reading is my biggest hobby and the main focus of my blog and bookstagram account. In my spare time I love to travel, binge TV shows and go on muddy dog walks.

What I Do Here


I've been a huge reader for as long as I remember. I spent most of my childhood in my local library and still spend a lot of time there. I read books from a variety of genres - concentrating most on Mystery/Thrillers, Literary Fiction and Non-Fiction. I share my thoughts on what I've been reading lately here and on Instagram - and love to meet new people in the Bookish community. Books will always have a special place in my heart. I've lost myself in books, and I've found myself too.
