In 2013 I started jadetheobscure with a review of Thomas Hardy’s Jude the Obscure [do you see what I did there?]; since then I have reviewed every book I’ve taken the time to read.

The whole review process from starting a book, to finishing a review is like journey through all my favourite things  I love reading and I love writing, so it’s very therapeutic. I also love quotes and really enjoy taking the time to find a quote which sums up exactly how I feel about a book, for me this is almost as important as the review itself.

If you want me to review your book I do take requests, but once I have read a book I will write a review, and I’m very honest about my opinions. I try to get one review written a week, but hey, none of us are perfect.

I also use my blog to create Obscure Poetry, and as a platform to share other publications I have assisted on.

Feel free to get in touch via the contact page to put in a request, or if you would like any further information.

  1. Belated hello from Türkiye… just wanted to say “thank you”, I appreciate your recent ‘follow’, knowing how many interesting and entertaining blogs there are out there. It’s been a while I know, but a storm knocked out our village internet and phone, hence the delay!

    Blogging since June 2013, my little corner of the world tries to offer an eclectic smattering of posts, from basic amateur photography, to sharing my travel adventures over the decades, as well as day-to-day happenings here on our fruit farm in southern Turkey. I also throw in a few of my observations on life and lighter-hearted stuff for good measure.

    You are more than welcome to have a look around, stay a while and have a trawl through my collection. There are plenty of categories within the drop-down menus to help in said digging process.

    Hope you have a great day…



  2. Hi, I was just searching for the book Jude the Obscure and end up coming to this site. After reading the reviews on the home page, I decide that this site is the one I’d like to drop a visit occasionally. I am now busy with the writing of my thesis and somewhat hindered by some boredom, and these days whenever I encountered the word “Jade” it will reminded me there is book called Jude the Obscure, so I just got some refresh by searching it online, haha ~. I am not a bookworm, but I like books; I haven’t read a lot by now, but it always gives me pleasures in reading.However I am going to work months later and there will be little time for such pleasure, maybe I should cherish these limited campus days. Anyway, nice to meet you here!
