As you can tell from my sidebar I am Annemieke. I am a 30 something Dutch stay at home mom. Books have been a large part of my life for a while now. I grew up amongst books as a child and inhaled them myself as soon as I could read. In high school and college I lost contact with the big reader in myself. But in 2014 my love for books was found again when I found the book tumblr community.
Then in May of 2015 I decided to finally create my own book blog and I never looked back. The name of the blog was funnily enough inspired by my reading of A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin at the time. I thought making it A Dance with Books was quite clever. I know. I’m terrible. Even so this was a title for this blog that has since stuck around and I can’t imagine ever changing it.
This blog has become a bit of an extension of myself. As a stay at home mom to a young toddler boy (born August 2016) life isn’t always easy or exciting. I get a lot of stimulation out of reading, writing blog posts and interacting with all of you.
Blog start date – 20-05-2015
