Welcome to Addlepates and Book Nerds!


I was a book blogger for a while, and I now blog about every little thing in life I can think of. Bear with me while I try all these new posts out… 

I’m a New Zealand teen who gets angry about the world (but not angry enough for tumblr). I like to capture the world through photos and words, and read in all the moments in nz-squadbetween. I have an overwhelming desire to see every corner of the world I possibly can, and hug the people I love in all those corners. I can’t do make up to save myself, and you’re more likely to find me buying matching stationary than matching clothes. 

My nerd hobbies include a new found love of the Avengers, reading YA, watching Game of Thrones, How I Met Your Mother, and every vlogger I can find, and being the last person on the music bandwagons. 

I have big plans for the rest of my life, including university, teaching, travelling, and having an army of puppies. I plan to blog every second of it!

  3. Oh, wow awsome.
    But pleasee can you help me out a little here, yesterday I discovered about the memes and stuff and I really want to do those but I can’t figure how to post, so should I simply do them and they will apear in the home page along with every other post? But I see here you have different pages where you post, how do you do that? Once I opened a new page, no new post option showed up. I’m really confused. Please help.

    1. Just do it like a normal post. With pages, it’s generally for a collection of things (like my book reviews) or a meme that’s been made up. If I were you I’d stick to just doing normal posts, then work out pages once you’ve got a bigger blog 🙂


  4. Hello! 🙂

    We are from Club Bookie, a new website that aims to bring bookworms together through listing up and creating a haven that would feature compilations of anything and everything book related. From bloggers, to vloggers, to bookstagrams, to book clubs, communities, and events — you name it!

    We were just wondering if you might be interested to be a part of the book bloggers list. We would like to inform you ahead that the questionnaire might be a bit long. We really wanted to bring the connection of the readers and the bloggers a bit more closer, thus, the feature-like questions.

    If you’re interested to become a part of our mini project, we hope that you could fill out our form here: http://goo.gl/forms/H6kVjX8drC

    If you have friends who might also be interested to be a part of the list, please feel free to have them sign up!

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon. ❤


  5. Hi Victoria! I am planning to post my fourth Feature with Followers meme on Sunday (102515) and I was wondering if you were interested and have the time to be my featured follower! If so, please respond to this comment ASAP or email me at jbelkbooks@gmail.com. It will not take much time — I just plan on asking a few questions and obtaining some more insight on you and your overall blog.

    P.S. If you want more information on what exactly this post is about, please feel free to check out my first ever post here:

    Thanks so much,
    -Jess @jbelkbooks
