About BookieMonster

BookieMonster logoWelcome to BookieMonster – Book blog, book reviews and all things bookie!

In 2009 I started the BookieMonster blog so I could write about the thing I love the most – books. Book reviews, book links, interesting book stuff, book festivals (particularly in New Zealand) and book-related interviews.

So who is BookieMonster?

BookieMonster. Now with added sparkle.

BookieMonster. Now with added sparkle.

That would be me (Ngaire). I’ve been a book lover from a young age. I have a diverse range of favourite authors from Terry Pratchett to Janet Frame to Margaret Atwood to Kazuo Ishiguro. I think “Leader of the Pack” by The Shangri-Las is the best pop song ever written and The Empire Strikes Back is the best movie ever made. I firmly believe that everyone looks better in sepia and in the future I hope to become a crazy old cat lady. I also tweet @BookieMonsterNZ.
