About Me


Welcome to Lost in a Good Book, my small corner of the internet where I am able to share my passion for books with other like-minded people. My name is Amy and I live in Australia, the home of constant sunshine and beaches and yet with all the perfection my ideal day is to stay indoors with a good book.

I love to read and I love to write which is a bonus because as a librarian I come across so many amazing books and I get to discuss books all day. Despite the access to free books I still have a wonderful and terribly addictive habit of book collecting. I love to peruse book sales and second hand books shops because you often will find the perfect book you didn’t even know you were looking for.

I started this blog in 2013 because I wanted to share some of the amazing books I had been reading. From there it has grown into something I absolutely adore doing and I am constantly finding new and amazing things to share with the world. I post mainly reviews but often you will find a recap of author events, writers festivals, or maybe even rambles of mine about books or reading or some other topic that has caught my attention.

You will find reviews of every kind here, old books, new books, classics or new releases. I read and review everything from picture books and graphic novels to young adult and genre fiction covering multiple formats. I also read and review traditionally published books, self-published books, as well as books from authors/publishers submitting review requests.

Over the years I have broadened my reading and have discovered genres I didn’t even know I would like and authors I have fallen in love with. Some of my favourite authors have been discovered through this blog and my own appreciation of genres has grown because of it as well as the blogging community. I hope to demonstrate some of that acquired wisdom in my reviews and to help share my excitement over the amazing books in the world.

Feel free to check out all of my pages and tags. I have a list of my Top 5 books of each year, a page with my favourite authors which I am always looking at adding to, a one stop shop of all my reviews, not to mention multiple blog features. You can also come and chat with me on my various social media platforms. I’d love to hear from you, even if it only to say hi.
