About Me

Hi everyone, welcome to Book Hoarder. My name is Abby. I am 26 years old. I live in Melbourne, Victoria with my boyfriend and our two gorgeous cats named Allie and Bailey. I love books and going on adventures.

I have always loved reading, it’s my way of escaping reality and entering another life or world. Every time I finished reading a good book, it feels like waking up from a an amazing dream that you do not want to wake up from.

I recently started this website to share my love for books and share my thoughts about books that I have read.
