Special Guest Saturday: Meet Krystal!

View her Bookstagram
Hi, my name is Krystal and I’m a 28 year old Auscan (what is that you ask?!) I was born in Canada but live in Australia. I live in Newcastle NSW with my Partner of 4 years Anthony and our 26 indoor plant babies. I love to read most genres but a few of my favorites are thriller, fantasy and historical fiction. 
When I’m not reading I’m usually sleeping, working, going to the gym, playing basketball or binging Netflix. I have a pretty simple life. I moved 9 hours from my family 10 years ago and it’s been tough but I have created an awesome community in Newcastle and a fantastic virtual family with the bookstagram community. I work as a Practice Manager for an allergy and immunology specialist centre and I love it. I’m a coffee lover, a chocolate eater and a lover of all things nature. Happy reading! šŸ“– šŸ„°

*Important Note!* I recently changed my handle from @bon_bookclub to @bon_bookreview as a lot of my book club members have decided to get their own bookstagram account and I was posting a lot of my own personal reviews so decided the name made more sense. Bon means little in French and my book review style is quite short and to the point. I will however still be posting monthly book club choices on my page.

Q: When did you join Bookstagram? 

A: July 2019.

Q: What’s been your favorite part of this community? 

A: Finding likeminded individuals to discuss all things bookish with and also making friends from all around the world.

Q: If you had to choose one book to recommend others read, what would it be and why? 

A: Hellen Keller! It’s short and sweet but packs a powerful message for all ages.

Q: What’s one piece of advice you’d give someone considering creating a bookstagram? 

A: Just do it! The community is so supportive and we are all here to build each other up. You have to start somewhere.

Q: What’s something most people don’t know about you? 

A: I have a paramedic degree but i don’t currently use it.
