Doom and gloom, let's go! This month I read The Handmaid's Tale for my recently launched End of the World Book Club (since I love apocalyptic and dystopian books so much!). I would love to hear your thoughts on the books and/or the TV show if you're already watched it.
The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

Can you review my book?
I’m always happy to hear about upcoming books, but I’m afraid I don’t review self-published books and usually prefer to be contacted by the publisher rather than the author. I can only accept a small number of books for review, since I have a lot of books lined up already. I enjoy reading classics, dystopian/apocalyptic novels, sci-fi, translated fiction and a variety of graphic novels, YA and contemporary literary fiction. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Where is your accent from?
I was born and raised in the Netherlands, studied English Literature at Leiden University (also in the Netherlands), studied in the US for 3 months and had lots of American friends, hence the weird accent. I'm definitely not Irish or Canadian, I promise!
Where do you live?
I live in London and have been here for 4 years now.
Where do you work?
I'm a Social Media Producer at Penguin Random House UK.
How did you get into publishing?
I did publishing work experience on 3 different occasions, did a lot of networking and learned everything I know about social media from creating and running this channel for 8 years. (P.s. You don't necessarily have to study Publishing or English to get a job in publishing!).
What do you use to film?
I have a Canon 60D with a Tokina 11-16 lens (which is super useful if you want to sit close to your camera and still get a wide shot) and I use a window as my natural lighting. I edit my videos in Final Cut X.
