Claire: Full Time Bitch
I’m Claire! I’m a 25 year old museum worker that recently finished an MSc in Visual/material/museum anthropology (say that 5 times fast, I dare you). I’m from The Bahamas but I’ve studied in Canada, the USA and the UK! I’m ready to leave The Bahamas now though, and I’d like a job in the culture sector somewhere-not-here. My dream is to be a curator or academic or stay-at-home-blogger (I don’t know if I have the stamina for that though, blogging is serious work!).
What else is there to say? Pokemon Red enthusiast, Harry Potter, ASOIAF and Sailor Jupiter-Mars-Uranus-Neptune-Pluto-Saturn-Mercury die hard (OK, so, I don’t like the blonde senshi). I love geek culture, nerd culture and book culture (fantasy-ya-dystopian-literature-historical-nonfiction-kickassfemaleprotagonists). I hoard bubble tea (green tea-lemon!).
My mottos in life: Chill the fuck out and One must always have an attitude.
I see nothing wrong with being called a bitch and proudly own up to the word. I’m a bitch for books, what could be better?
Nicole: Sometimes Bitch
My name is Nicole! I am an illustrator (and designer at Hallmark). I hail from The Bahamas where it is mostly warm & sunny. I now live in the UK where it is mostly cold & rainy.

About the Blog:
I (Claire) started the blog in June 2012 after I realised I was talking to my friends a bit too much about the books I’d loved and hated. I heard B*tches In Bookshops by La Shea Delaney & Annabelle Quezada and that cinched it, I had to start a book blog!
I try to post at least twice a week but to be honest, I tend to post when I feel like it or if I have time inbetween my schooling. But I do post a variety of stuff, currently my favourite posts are the Casting Director (where I dream up an imaginary cast for a book to film adaptation) and Oxford Diaries series. I’m big into writing about my Obsessions as well. I do also post the following:
- Lists (upon lists, upon lists)
- Details about bookish events
- And misc. rants, raves and adventures in reading
