I’m Jo, an Aussie book reviewer. I started this Booklover Book Reviews site in 2009 and quickly realised I enjoy blogging and reviewing books almost as much as actually reading them. I hope you enjoy browsing all the reviews of books, book lists and author interviews I have amassed over that time and find the perfect book for you. Then, sit back in your favourite reading chair and join me on this bookworm’s quest to find the best books to read!
