Gilly Reads


My name is Gillian (pronounced with a J sound). I'm a passionate book reader in my late-twenties. I love tea, pretty dresses and cute mugs. I have just moved back home to Hobart, Australia.

I read a variety of genres, but especially love children's and young adult books. I also really love comics. I'm passionate about reading diversely and sharing the love of the incredible literary talent we have in Australia.

I’m have a Master of Publishing and hoping to one day work in YA and Children’s literature. I am currently working at the Australian Publishers Association.

I started this blog in 2015, as a way to practice writing, especially writing about my love of books. Here's my original welcome post.
