Welcome to Boston Bibliophile! Thanks for stopping by. My name is Marie. I'm a bookseller and background actor based in the NYC area. So why is the blog called Boston Bibliophile?
I'm from Boston originally and started this blog is 2007 as a way to share and record my thoughts about books and reading. My husband and I moved to NYC in the fall of 2014 for his job.
For the past ten years I have reviewed books and talked about travel, food, crafts and whatever else is on my mind.
I'm passionate about literary fiction from around the world. I am a committed supporter of small presses and especially those specializing in translations. And I have started translating books, from French to English.
Mostly I review books I enjoyed, but just because a book isn't reviewed doesn't mean I didn't like it. Sometimes my other adventures keep me busy and away from writing reviews right away. I work as a bookseller and background actress.
I read current and backlist literary fiction, crime fiction, thrillers, and narrative nonfiction. I dabble in science fiction to the tune of 3-4 titles per year. I don't review religious Christian books, self-help, YA/kids (unless I love it) or self-published books in any genre.
I am no longer accepting unsolicited review and interview requests, hands-down, no exceptions. Seriously. There is a reason my email address is not on this blog. It's because I don't want emails, so please don't email me.
I may live in NYC now but I'll always be a Boston Bibliophile.
