I’m Evangeline, Evie for short, I’m 21, and born and bred in Liverpool. I’m a recent Spanish and English graduate and aspire to work in the publishing sector with a key interest in encouraging regional diversity.
As part of my degree, I spent 9 months teaching in Madrid, an eye-opening experience and you can read about my endeavours over at the Madrid Diaries. I’m a bit of a language nerd and while I was in Spain, I spent a few months learning Japanese. I’ve also studied French and beginners German.
Evie Jayne was born during my second year of university when I wanted a place to gush over books, share recommendations, and commemorate the minutiae of everyday life with my frequent Little Things posts.
I owe my love of fiction to Jacqueline Wilson who dominated my bookshelves during my childhood. I put this fact down to why I had never read the Harry Potter series until now! A few of my favourite books include Jane Eyre, The Secret History, and as of February, Girl, Woman, Other. Meanwhile, I would love to delve more into the works of Virginia Woolf, Stephen King, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Fyodor Dostoevsky.
I am a huge foodie, and find cooking cathartic. That being said, I would quite happily eat breakfast food for every meal of the day. Last summer, I decided to go veggie and I’m trying to make more eco-friendly choices 🌱
Other things I love include binge-worthy TV shows, the smug feeling of waking up before my alarm, slow-weekend mornings, the unbreakable bond I have with my dressing gown, new notebooks, my Pokémon guilty pleasure, and being able to spend hours in a bookshop, walk out with nothing, but still have had the best time. (And if it wasn’t obvious from this post, I’m a bit of an over-sharer.)
Now and then, I will work with publishers and these posts will always be marked as gifted/ad.
I am taking on review requests. For all business enquiries please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
