Jeann

Jeann is an Aussie YA blogger and booktuber who is passionate about books, particularly fantasy, sci-fi, #LoveOzYA and diverse representation. I started Happy Indulgence Books in July 2012 as a way to share my passion for books and to discover other people who love books as much as I do.

I am a monthly co-host on ABC radio where I talk about books, a co-host of The Name of the Book fantasy book club, and also run the Aussie YA Bloggers Facebook community. When I’m not reading or fangirling, I can be found working as a digital content producer or spending time with my family and golden retriever Toby.

Speaking Engagements

I am an experienced speaker who has previously appeared at Brisbane Writer’s Festival, Whitsunday Voices Youth Literature festival and numerous author launches and events in Australia.

My speaking topics include book blogging, booktubing, book reviewing, and advice on growing a social media audience. I am also available to host any author panels or events. Please feel free to contact me for any speaking opportunities.

Jenna

Hi, I’m Jenna. I’m an Australia-based psychology PhD student, blogger, avid reader, professional procrastinator and pastry devourer. When I’m not busy conducting ‘ground-breaking’ research, I am reading books or watching Japanese dramas and TV shows.

I have loved reading since I was a pre-schooler and my childhood was spent reading Enid Blyton’s children’s books. I still occasionally take out my Magic Faraway Tree books to read. My favourite genre now, as a 20-something year old, is YA contemporary but I also love fantasy and historical fiction.

I am also the blogmistress over at Reading with Jenna, where I post more reviews and other bookish things. I hope you enjoy reading my posts here on Happy Indulgence!

Greetings! My name is Aila and I am a Floridian reader who travels through space and time… via reading, of course! Although I wish magic existed in real life, it’s enough for me to experience it vicariously through fictional characters. You can find me studying for school, reading, or fangirling 24/7. Currently, I’m at university in Georgia, USA, and studying to get a business and biology degree.

If you’re reading this, you should totally recommend a book to me! I love discovering new tales, whether it’s fantasy or contemporary or science fiction or… well, this list goes on and on. My love for books started with the Percy Jackson series and I’ve never looked back. I started my blog, One Way Or An Author, to share my love for them, but discovering the book community was the best part of the journey. I look forward to hearing from you! (Seriously, I don’t bite!)
