Lois

IMG_1082Hello and welcome to Lois Reads Books! My name is Lois, I’m a twenty-one year old book blogger. I have loved reading from a very young age.

I read quite a variety of books – including fantasy, thriller, dystopian and anything with a bit of humour – but contemporary fiction always holds a special place in my heart. Some books just immerse you so much and keep you right on the edge of your seat and unable to put the book down; that is how I feel about contemporary fiction. I mostly read young adult books, but I also read some adult-orientated books.

Starting Lois Reads Books was a long process, that I had been thinking about for a long time. I thought about joining the blogging world long before I finally signed up. The main reasons why I decided to start blogging in August 2016 were, that I think it is a great way to keep track of the books that I read and be able to put my thoughts into words. Also to be part of a wonderful community that I had been observing for a while and which has always fascinated me. Since none of my friends read as much as I do, I needed a place to talk about the books I read without being labelled a nerd or a geek.

I know this is going to be a lot of work and I’m going to find myself up late at night trying to come up with new ideas and writing reviews but I know I will enjoy every second of it.

Some of my favourite books of all time are:

(Books that will stay with me for a very long time and I could read over and over and over again.)

David

Hello everyone, I am Lois’ boyfriend David. I am twenty years-old and have loved reading from a very young age. I have wanted to write reviews for a long time but did not know where to write them. When Lois asked if I would like to join Loisreadsbooks, of course I said yes. I will be a guest poster every now and again sharing reviews of book I have recently read.

I read different genres to Lois. These range from Science, Science Fiction, Historical Fiction, Dystopian to Non-fiction. I believe that the genres I read and the books I will review will add a different dimension to Loisreadsbooks and I cannot wait to get started.
