Welcome to my blog! I’m Janice, a bibliophile, new mama, and small business owner.
I live in a gorgeous rural area of British Columbia, Canada – surrounded by lush forests, snow-capped mountains, and stunning waterfalls. I’m embracing life as a new mama, but still trying to make time to read, of course! I am the owner and creator of a bookish shop: Bibliophile Belle’s Boutique, as well as the co-creator of a book subscription box: The Uniquely Bookish Box. You can usually find me snuggling my little girl, guzzling coffee, designing, sewing, or out enjoying nature! I also love to travel and have lived in and explored quite a few areas of the world.
My most-read and favourite genres are contemporary, historical fiction, and fantasy. I also love a good mystery novel or memoir, and I’m pretty open to reading anything that intrigues me. I enjoy reading non-fiction about history, politics, sociology, psychology and the natural world.
I started this blog because I love talking about, sharing and photographing books! I’m also expanding to include topics related to motherhood and trying to live more simply and sustainably.
