Moving house

Oaken Bookcase Button

Hello lovely readers!

I’ve decided to take the plunge and move The Oaken Bookcase to self-hosted wordpress. The site will be moving to:

Please update your bookmarks, buttons and any links you may have!

The new site does look (almost) the same at the moment, but I’ll be updating the design over the next couple of weeks to take advantage of the new functionality available.

How you can keep following

RSS followers: You don’t need to do anything. If all goes to plan, I’ll update feedburner and you should see no break in transmission.

Email followers: You need to go to and sign up for email subscription there. Sorry for the inconvenience!

Linky followers, facebook followers, twitterites and others – you don’t need to do a thing!

See you on the other side 😉

Hello and welcome to The Oaken Bookcase!

My name is Angelya and I’m a bookworm. I love to lose myself in other worlds, other times and other places.

In this blog I intend to post reviews of the books that I read. I mainly read Fantasy – high, urban, a bit of paranormal and adult, young adult and children’s fantasy. Basically, if it’s got dragons, swords or magic of any type, I’m in.  I also love a bit of Science Fiction and Historical Fiction, plus general fiction if it’s humorous!

Being an Aussie, I’m very interested in reading works by Australian and Kiwi authors. I’m hoping to review some of these very soon.

I don’t intend to post every day as some book-bloggers do, or on all the different shared topics that they post about, but I’ll be joining in when I am able. Between work, family and sleep there’s not a lot of time left over these days!

A Bit About the Author

I’m 30-odd, live in Brisbane with my baby son and husband and make street maps for a living.

I also play games and write about World of Warcraft on my other blog, Revive & Rejuvenate.

I’ve been writing a few reviews lately both for Goodreads and for Hannah’s blog, Once Upon A Time. I’m enjoying it so much I thought I might make my own place for reviews and things!

You’re most welcome to join me in my reading adventures!
