About Me

Profile updated 11th February 2019

Hello :) My name is Jemma and I'm 29.


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 with my cats Rosa, Odin & Freyja.

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.

Comment: I enjoyed reading your list. “A Monster Calls”-Ness is one of my faves as well. “The Thirteenth Tale” sounds good.
Response: I'm glad you enjoyed it. I hope you enjoy The Thirteenth Tale if you decide to try it!
Comment: Thanks for sharing!
Response: You are welcome :)
Comment: Thanks for the great list. I'd been thinking about giving The Thirteen Tales another try - I had a hard time with it when I first tried it. :(
Response: I hope you enjoy it if you decide to give it another try! And thanks for the rating :D
Comment: Thank you for sharing, Sorry you didn't enjoyed it as much as the previous one.
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: Thanks for sharing!
Response: You're welcome!

Comment: Thank you so much, I am enjoying reading through your reading log!
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
reader44ever rated for CL: Pick my Next Book #23 on Feb 17, 2017
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!

Comment: I really enjoyed reading your reviews---thank you! The color photos of the book covers were a nice touch. It's always great to see what a book looks like when one is considering reading it. Blessings!
Response: You are welcome Sarah - and thank you for your nice comments. :) I'm glad you appreciate seeing the covers!

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

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)
