Hoi! I'm Sanne, a 26-year-old book lover. Three years ago I moved from the Netherlands to London, where I'm currently working as Social Media Producer at Penguin Random House UK. (I also lived studied in the US for a semester and had an American flatmate for a couple of years, which explains the mysterious accent!)

On this channel I talk about books, language, London, travel, museums & other things I love.

If you'd like to get in touch, please email me at booksandquills@gmail.com.

Review policy.
I can only accept a small number of books for review, since I have a lot of books lined up already. As a rule I do not accept self-published books. I enjoy reading classics, dystopian/apocalyptic novels, sci-fi and a variety of graphic novels, YA and contemporary literary fiction.

P.s. If you have any questions about studying Literature, doing work experience or working in publishing, take a look at the Publishing playlist on my channel.
