Hello fellow bloggers, my name is Emma and I’m 22 years old from the South East of England. I have naturally dark blonde hair but I occasionally dip my head into a pot of ginger hair dying phase, and so currently I’m ginger!
In 2015 I begun my Open University adventure and where I have been studying towards an Open Degree (basically this means I can pick and choose what modules I want to study), and so far it has been by far the best decision I have made. I previously attended a “brick” university but it just wasn’t for me, and so I dropped out and carried on with my part-time work in a supermarket.
During my “gap year” (2014) if you should call it that, I begun this blog ‘Emma’s Bookery’ where I begun writing reviews on the books I was reading and sharing them online. Slowly this simple hobby became a lot more than just posting a review on a blank blog. I started to join in with the book community with Twitter chats and discovering new bloggers on the way. Along with this I began to learn more and more about the publishing world and soon enough I was receiving emails from publishers and various agency’s as to whether I would review a book for them. I was flattered, and that was when the penny dropped for me that I could begin a career in an industry that I am passionate about.
As time has gone on, I have built up good relationships with publishers and other bloggers within the community and I couldn’t be more thankful for the opportunities that have come my way. This blog has made me excited for my future, and more determined than ever to achieve my dreams. I’m looking forward to sharing my life and this blog with you all.
