about the marshmallow
Hi! I’m Rhiana, but most people call me Rhi (rhymes with why), so feel free 🙂
I’m very passionate about books, rereads, and talking incessantly about things that no one else has any interest in! I make terrible jokes, and have been blogging about books since January 2019 – but I started this blog in February 2018. I haven’t stopped yet… maybe I should.
I’m queer (using she/her pronouns) and get very enthusiastic over representation in the books that I read. I try to read lots of diverse QPOC books – and rely on others in the community/my other bookish friends for recommendations.
I’m half Indian and adore the food – as well as most other Asian meals! I live in Australia with no pets sadly – but I have a colour coded bookshelf to make me happy :’) I also tend to mention the same books over and over again… forgive me!!
When I’m not at my computer blogging, you might find me reading, occasionally writing poetry, or talking/playing board games
and being very competitive with my friends and family. I read mostly YA contemporary and fantasy, and enjoy queer books with angst and soft characters who need a hug!! I don’t care if I’m crying – I want to feel things!!!
I’ve got some favourite things of mine below – if you see anything in common, let me know – I’m quite friendly 🙂
Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Adib Khorram, C.G. Drews, Casey McQuistion
I literally listen to anything… but some major favourites are probably Lorde, Girl in Red, Clairo, Rina Sawayama (omg her new album is very good), Taylor Swift (yes i’m basic what about it), and Wallows 🙂
Gilmore Girls, Love Simon, Glee, Atypical, Brooklyn 99, The Half Of It, and literally any Studio Ghibli film ❤
reading (duh), taking pretty notes, hanging out with friends, and art club ✨
This blog was founded by me in February 2018, and even though it wasn’t always a book blog that’s where I’ve ended up. I’ve always been passionate about books, and so since January 2019 that’s what I’ve been rambling about.
Even though most of my old posts are now unavailable to the public (aka you), I’m producing content regularly – at least once a week. In these posts, I talk about anything from books I cried over to recommending books based on how you’re feeling – and a whole range of things in between!!
I’m a part of the Asian Bookish Creators directory, run by Shut Up, Shealea and I’m open to working with publishers/authors. You can contact me here, and find other links and a short bio about me here– I look forward to hearing from you 🙂
