“Never give up on your dreams, and never let anyone tell you that what you love is inconsequential or useless or a waste of time. Because if you love it? If that OTP or children’s card game or abridged series or YA book or animated series makes you happy? That is never a waste of time. Because in the end we’re all just a bunch of weirdos standing in front of other weirdos, asking for their username.” — Ashley Poston (Geekerella)


✨The MOST magical Aisles at the BB Warehouse Sale ✨ – The Kiddies section of course😁

The Pre-Sale Event: On Friday the 13th of September I had the great privilege of attending the Bargain Books Warehouse Pre-Sale with a few other bookstagrammers and man did we have a good time!! Like all of the best events, we started the day of with a cuppa and let me tell you Brew ETC …


Hallooo 🙋🏼‍♀️!

I’m not great at introducing myself…introvert as I am 😅 I guess the best place to start is with my name. Hi, I am Esli. I am a wife and mommy who (in comparison to most avid readers) only recently discovered my immense enjoyment of reading. It has become my happy place. I am therefor determined to raise my little girlies to also enjoy reading. I live in South Africa, I love the beach and I only function after a cup (or two) of coffee.

I started my Bookstagram account (this is basically just an Instagram account about all things bookish 😜) about 3 years ago, with a little break while I was pregnant with my second little girl. Now I start my blogging journey (October 2018).

My main reason for starting a blog is so that I can write reviews on a platform that is a bit more creative. I have the opportunity to be working with really fantastic publishing houses and  I am a rep for a few fantastic bookish companies and I want to to my best for them.

Instagram has become my creative outlet and I strive to improve my photography and editing skills. My blog…I’m hoping…will improve the way I review books and also get to know some more amazing people. I’ll also have the occasional fun challenge, unboxing and other tags and thingies on here…but let’s see how it goes…

If you read all that, I hope you know a little bit more about me ☺️

Much love💗
