Welcome to OhMyFangirly, a book + lifestyle blog dedicated to embracing all that makes you (and me) fangirly. My name is Paige and I’m the twenty-something bookworm + fangirl behind the blog. This is my little corner of the internet where I unashamedly talk/gush/flail over all the things in life and fictionally that make me fangirly with like-minded fangirlies. Here you’ll find bookish posts, book reviews and all sorts of YA pop-culture, with a sprinkle of posts inspired by life and whatever my little fangirly heart desires.
I love to read books of many genres, but mostly YA. I watch way too many TV shows than I care to admit. I’m a dreamer, do-er and thinker. A list maker, procrastibaker and font junkie. Lover of vanilla lattes, music and brightly-coloured nail polish. I’m the kind of girl who will take any excuse to dress up but whose idea of a good night is one spent with a good book or binge watching my latest TV show obsession.
I’ve been a bookworm since I first learnt to read, but it wasn’t until my late teens that I really fell in love with reading. I mostly read young adult and my first YA loves were mostly the big popular series, namely the Harry Potter series. Nowadays my favourite YA are mostly contemporary YA, and sometimes New-Adult. I love reading stories and characters that feel real to me and who I can relate to and I’m forever on a mission to find a new favourite book to obsess over. You’re also likely to find me squealing over my latest fandom obsession, movies and tv shows and gushing over pretty things like fashion, homewares and interior style.
I’m very much a home-body and my favourite places to be are those near home: the beach, the library or a coffee shop — usually with a book in hand. But I also have a serious cast of wanderlust and daydream of new places in search of new adventures. Which is probably why I love escaping into fictional worlds and discovering different kinds of people, places and adventures of books and screen to unwind from the stresses and fast-pace of life and work.
