Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I am Lola, I am 26 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I love reading and reviewing books, hence the reason I started this blog. When I am not blogging or working you can find me cooking or baking yummy dishes in my kitchen or curled up with a good book on the couch.
I studied psychology at a university and my bachelor’s degree in psychology and my master’s degree in economic and consumer psychology. While I enjoyed my study eventually I ended up chasing my dream job and I am now organizing blog tours at Lola’s Blog Tours as my full time job.
I like to review books, so you’ll see usually about 1-3 reviews each week. I like to point out what I did and didn’t like about a book in my reviews. I usually talk about the story, the characters, the romance and world building in my reviews and wrap it all up in a conclusion/ summary.
Besides reading, hanging around on the internet and finding out more about social media I also love gaming, puzzling, colouring and walking. You can also find me often in the kitchen trying out new recipes I found on Pinterest. I love cooking and baking and I share some of my recipes on my blog. I love being around nature and everything that’s green, although if I am being honest I spend almost my whole days indoors behind my computer. Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons and my favourite time of the day is afternoon. My favourite animals are rats, pinguins and sheep and I love the colour green. We used to have four pet rats named Skittles, Smarties, Snickers And Pita and they were such a joy to have around, halfway august 2015 we lost our last rat and have been pet-less since then. We still miss them a lot and aren’t ready for new pets yet. On older posts you still find pictures and mentions of them.
This blog started out as a place to share my reviews of books I read, but it’s grown to be so much more. I sometimes participate in blog tours now and then, usually only if I have already read the book or really want to read it. I do cover reviews to accompany Cover Reveals as I like to explain what I like and don’t in a cover and hear your opinion about the cover as well. Every Sunday I participate in the Sunday Post, where I talk about what happened that week, share my book haul and mention what I cooked for dinner last week. My To-Be Read List is a monthly feature I participate in where visitors can vote for which they want me to read and review that month. Lola’s Ramblings is my discussion/ random ramblings post feature that usually makes a weekly appearance on thursday. Each friday it’s time for my Lola’s Kitchen feature where I share recipes with you or talk about things related to food, cooking and my kitchen.
I spend my days blogging and running my own blog tour business, called Lola’s Blog Tours. I organize blog tours, cover reveals, book blitzes and review opportunities for fiction books. I love spreading the word about awesome books!
My banner is a picture of me as a pony, that a friend made for me. Actually I have only seen two episodes of my little pony, but I think it’s cute and makes my blog and social media accounts easily recognizable. Also I like how the pony was designed look like me and it’s reading! Michelle from Limabean Designs designed most of the graphics for my blog. She’s awesome, so make sure to check out her site if you are looking for a new design or book related graphic.
