About the TeamBitches With Books is run by Nikki & Claire, where we blog about our literary loves and geeky affections. We tend to talk about diversity in fiction and Claire has an obsession with fantasy (or Harry Potter).
Hello! This is Claire- I'm a big reader but I have a serious affection for fantasy, YA and kick-ass female protagonists. This blog has something from every genre, though.
I mix a lot of my personal interests into this blog and occasionally write about events, living in London and films. My only aim for the blog is this: You must have attitude.
My name is Nicole! I am an illustrator. I hail from The Bahamas where it is mostly warm & sunny. I now live in Leeds (UK) where it is mostly cold & rainy.Twitter View our Book Review List
