About Me

Guess what?

  • Backchatting Books is a blog designed to record one woman’s (ir)rational reading ramblings
  • I review primarily urban fantasy and romance novels with a side-helping of mystery and steampunk


  • I’m slowly filling in the gaps in series I love as the mood takes me
  • I’m not currently accepting any books for review as I have a huge backlog of books that are begging to be read

Five random facts about me

  • I am the proud mama of a pretty awesome baby boy
  • My other passions are jewellery making and Japanese RPG video games
  • I’m half way through a master’s degree which I’m doing part time (this is my 3rd degree)
  • I’ve visited Europe, the Middle East and South East Asia quite a bit over the last fifteen years but have hardly seen anything of my own country, Australia. I figure I’ll go on a massive road trip one day along the Great Ocean Road or up the top end
  • I have a nasty habit of rereading my favourite books over and over and over. Things have got got so bad, I can quote entire paragraphs out of Pride and PrejudiceThe Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, To Kill a Mockingbird and Dracula

    I am really enjoying the wide range of reviews. I usually read crime & mystery, but maybe I should try some of the other styles.

    • Hi Swadgirl, thank you for the feedback. I’m trying really hard to build the site quickly so hang in there and it will get bigger and better.

    • Hi Ms Urban Book Thief,
      Thank you very much for your vote of confidence. Sharing 11 random facts and answering your 11 questions sounds like fun, but I don’t know 11 blogs with less than 200 followers that I can nominate. I think I need to get to know people in the blogging community a bit better first.
