Welcome to my blog Owlish Books!
I’m Loes M. and I love to read! I also love brunch, all things British and movie nights. On this blog you will find opinions on what I’ve read, posts about movie adaptations, interviews with authors, book news and the latest book releases. You’ll also find movie reviews and some poetry, storytelling and literary quizzes sprinkled on top!
I was born in 1990 and my parents dutifully read to me every night. My father managed to pass his love of reading on to me, as well as his preference for the fantasy genre. Every Saturday, before going to the Chiro (one of Belgium’s youth organisations), we would stop by the library which was only two doors down and I would load up on my habitual 7 to 10 books for the week. Since I grew up in a rather small town with an accordingly small library, I finished the children’s section by age 11. So I followed my father into the next room and discovered the adults’ section. The many different fantasy series captivated my attention completely, at which point I became known as a book-worm. Every spare moment I got, I had my nose in a book and you would have to come up to me and wave your hand in front of my face to get my attention (which greatly annoyed my mother). I went on to study languages and Film-, Theatre- and Literary sciences in university, followed by a masters in Professional Communication and I now write for a living.
