Hi I’m Dearna. I read, a lot, and write, sometimes. This blog is an extension of my Bookstagram account; @wordsoftheroses. It’s a place for me to collect my thoughts about books I’ve been readings, to keep my reviews and other bookish content.


I’m not too picky when it comes to books, anything that sounds intriguing I will pick up. However I do have some well-loved genres which you will see a lot of if you delve into the rest of the blog. These include: Historical Fiction, YA, Retellings, Fantasy and Classics, with a little Poetry.

WHO IS DEARNA? 125563098_807225660075449_569581119871778558_n

I am a Melbourne writer, student, book nerd, music lover and history fanatic.

I’m a garudate of RMIT University’s Professional Writing and Editing degree. The course has really helped to expand my reading habits and is mostly to blame for this blog.

Have a browse, read something if you’d like and comment on posts so we can discuss some awesome books
