About Me

Hey there!

My name’s V and I run Dark Heart Books. I’m a book blogger based in Scotland with a darker aesthetic and a wide reading taste!

My favourite genre, and probably what you’ll find the most of here, is YA fantasy. I really enjoy most YA genres and YA is truly the focus of my various channels and content. I read adult as well, particularly sci-fi and horror, but YA is my real passion.

I run this website, as well as my bookstagram and my YouTube channel! I also have a twitter account but I’m not so active on there.

You can expect to find content surrounding all things YA, including reviews, interviews, bookish thoughts, cover redesigns and lists as well as much more!

I’m not sure how else to do an ‘About Me’ section other than some quick-fire facts! So, here we go!

Random facts:

  • I feel the same way about the word ‘impregnate’ as most people feel about the word ‘moist’.
  • Crabs freak me out and they are my ‘spiders’. I’d never hurt one, but they can keep their foamy, bubbly little mouths and freaky little pincers away from me!
  • I put mayonnaise on my chips and it’s AMAZING!
  • 3 is the perfect number of biscuits to have with a cup of tea. 1 isn’t enough (obviously) and only gives you a taste, 2 isn’t satisfying. 3 isn’t too greedy but can last the entire time it takes to drink your tea. And whilst we’re talking about tea, milk goes in SECOND (just like cereal)!
  • I think Root Beer tastes how Deep Heat smells – but I still LOVE it!
  • I’ve loved Paris every single time I’ve been, and I feel the very stereotypical way about it. But I hated Amsterdam. It felt like I’d been catfished by a city! It just felt like a really crappy theme park to me.
