About Me

Profile updated 9th January 2018

Hello :) My name is Jemma and I'm 28.

~~

I pledge to only click "Sent" when I have done so and rate everything I receive. :)

~~

I graduated from a degree in English Literature in 2011, and love everything book-related. I own more than 450 books and don't really have enough storage for them all...

I am currently working in a law firm as a legal secretary and studying to become a counsellor.

I live in Bournemouth, a beach town with the New Forest nearby.

I live with my fiancé, his mum and sister, and a host of animals! We have Rosa the cat who is 2, Odin & Freyja cats who are 1, Shadow the Australian Shepherd dog who is about 4, and Ghost the Samoyed who is 1.

After all this time on Swap-Bot, I mostly just take part in Reading Log and Pick My Next Book swaps. I used to have a massive profile to cover all eventualities of swapping, but now I just want to do reading-related things. (If anyone knows of any podcast-related swaps, let me know!)

As you may see from my profile, I'm a dedicated, if not very frequent swapper. If I sign up for something I will not flake, and never have.

Dislikes

  • Type 1 Swaps
  • People who send lazy swaps
  • Book reviews where the 'opinion' or 'thoughts' part of the review is one or two sentences long. e.g. "I would recommend this book to people who enjoy crime novels", or "I liked this book, it made me laugh". shudder

Comment: Hi Jemma, you are absolutely spot on with the "analysis". My favourite character is Celaena herself, as she has shown many different sides of herself. I am glad you enjoyed it and will be following the series. yeay! I am currently reading book 6, which is about chaol's journey. But i do recommend reading The Assassins Blade as the characters from that book will be mentioned.
Response: Thanks for the rating, Farah! And thank you for choosing this book for me, I enjoyed discovering it. I will definitely check out The Assassin's Blade.

Comment: Thank you so much for your reading log! I've enjoyed a couple Neil Gaiman as well, I just recently read Stardust and I loved The Graveyard Book. I've read a little bit of American Gods as well, about 100 pages or so but I found it wasn't what I wanted to read at the time so I haven't picked it up in a while. I'm also so glad you liked Across the Universe! I read those books years ago but remember them being great! Happy Reading! :)

Comment: Thank you for all of the great book suggestions. I have read a few. The Hobbit and 13 Reasons Why, which I found so upsetting. We have a huge teenage suicide epidemic here in the US and I was worried it glorified suicide too much. I'm looking forward to reading some of your suggestions. Thank you
Response: Thank you for the rating and heart, Marcie! I'm glad you enjoyed reading my Log. Yes, the teenage suicide rates are upsetting... I hope you enjoy anything else you choose to read from my list! Happy reading :)

Comment: Thank you for your reading log. Of all of your books, the only one I have read is 'The Five People You Meet in Heaven'. I also like that you put pictures of the books. I didn't do that and wish I had!
Response: Thanks for the rating and heart! :) I'm glad you liked my Log - I always love preparing them. Maybe next time you can do pictures too! Happy Reading :D

Comment: Reading your review was very interesting for me, as it sort of feels like we read different books! Cats? I don't remember the cats in The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Or at least, I didn't until I read your review! :-) I gave this book 4.5 stars, but, like you, it's not my favorite Gaiman story (my favorite is Neverwhere!). :-) Thank you for sharing!
Response: That is very interesting, that we took different things from the same book! My favourite so far is Neverwhere, too. Thanks for your rating and heart!

thank you for returning my postage stamp bag to me! I love getting them back and seeing where they have traveled!

Irishmaz on Jun 24, 2011:

Hi Jemma!

It was wonderful to swap with you again! I'm delighted that you liked everything and now that I see other things you like I can include some other little goodies besides stamps in future swaps :o)
