Meet Me!

Hello, lovely readers of the blog! Welcome to Books and Insomnia!

My name is Julie,

a 20-something book lover from the Philippines. I'm currently juggling reading, blogging and college so forgive me if I don't post regularly. I started this book blog in 2013 because I was looking for another platform (aside from Goodreads) wherein I can rant and gush about books. I have an unhealthy addiction to reading (well duh, obviously) that I almost always stay up late at night to finish a book. I mostly read and review Young Adult novels in various genres though contemporary is always my favorite. You can also find a few reviews of New Adult and Middle Grade books from time to time.

I love getting comments and emails from fellow book lovers so don't hesitate to contact me for whatever. Talk to me on Twitter, Goodreads, Facebook or on email anytime; links are posted below. (However, for review requests, please read my review policy first before sending an email.) Let's be friends! ^__^
