About Me

Welcome to Ramblings of a Daydreamer! I'm Marie and I'll be your host and tour guide while you're here. ;-)

Launched in 2010 as a place to talk about everyday life, Ramblings of a Daydreamer quickly morphed into a book blog when I discovered the amazing online book community. Like many other book bloggers, I didn’t have many ‘real life’ friends who were fellow bibliophiles, and I wanted a place to talk about the books I love and connect with other readers. I started posting reviews and bookish discussions, and the blog soon turned into my home online.

I still blog about books, but I’ve branched out a bit, also talking about life, writing, travel, and more, plus sharing pictures. I’ve met so many incredible people since starting this blog, and I hope to always feel at home in the bookish community. If you’re looking for book reviews and recommendations in a variety of genres, plus occasional real-life talk, a shot of wanderlust, and much more, I hope you’ll return to Ramblings of a Daydreamer often! You can follow via email in the right sidebar or via Bloglovin.  

Besides being an avid reader, I'm also an indie author. I've published 7 books: Blue Sky Days, The Game Changer, The Most Wonderful Time of the Year, Waiting for the Storm, After the Storm, Take Them by Storm, and Something in the Air, with plans for many more in the coming years. I have a special fondness for stories about self-discovery, family, and friendship, so those are the things I tend to write about...plus romance. Always romance. Find out more about my books here or on my author site.

Want to know more about me? Here are a few quick facts:

  • I'm a bookstagrammer. I started my Instagram the way I originally started this blog - intending to post random things, and then focusing on a theme once I discovered the bookish community. I love getting creative with my pictures, and using props like Funko Pops and bookish merch (especially bookmarks, stickers, and pins from NerdyGrlDesigns, who I rep for - use the code SWEETMARIE10 to save 10% on any purchase!). I also created a personal account about a year and a half ago because I missed posting non-bookish pictures and didn't want to mix the two.
  • I'm a complete and unapologetic nerd. You can often find me fangirling over things like Harry Potter (Ravenclaw for life!) Doctor Who, Sherlock, Supernatural, the Avengers, and about a million other things that make my nerdy little heart happy.
  • My favourite band is U2. They've basically been the soundtrack of my life for the last decade and a half, and have gotten me through the best of the best and the worst of the worst. I've seen them in concert three times, and let me tell you, there's absolutely nothing like seeing them live.
  • I love to travel. I spent two weeks travelling in England, France, and Italy in June 2015, and it was two of the best weeks of my life. My wanderlust is insatiable, though, and I'm always daydreaming about my next adventure. My #1 dream destination is Ireland, followed closely by Scotland.
