The girl behind the blog

I’s rather die on an adventure than live standing still. – V.E. Schwab

Hi, I’m Jordan, a 26 year old Brit that loves to read. Her Paper Adventure is my personal little corner of the internet where I share my love of books and reading. My favourite genres are fantasy and dystopian, I lean more towards YA but also read some NA and Adult books.

Reading isn’t something I’ve always loved to do, about five years ago I couldn’t remember ever just picking up a book to read for pleasure, but after visiting my sister one day I became book obsessed. My sister was telling me all about her new kindle and how easy it is to read and find books and, even though at that time I wasn’t a reader myself, seeing her gush about it made me decided to give reading a whirl and get myself a kindle too. After reading The Mortal Instruments I was hooked, how had I not realised before that reading wasn’t just something you were forced to do in school, that is was actually something that could be enjoyable? I guess I hadn’t found the right type of book(s) for me! Now my bookshelves are double stacked and bowing under the weight of all the books I’ve read/still need to read (because lets face it, most of us own more books on our TBRs than we’ve actually read, right? It’s not just me?).

I work full time, own my own bookish candle business (Paper Flames Candle Co) and blog on the side. When I’m not busy with all that, I’ll either be reading or binge watching one of my favourite TV series, some of my current favourites are Outlander, Once Upon A Time, Lucifer and Medici. As for favourite books well, it would take forever to name them all. I have two pets, Yoyo, a Bearded Dragon that is around 3/4 years old and Axel, a 5mo Boxer dog who can clear out a room with a single fart.
