meet the blogger!


“Never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them.”

 Lemony Snicket

Hi! I’m Gabrielle, the blogger behind Pocket Full of Books!

I’m just a PhD student in Ottawa, Canada, studying the brain and how we process language, but I’m also a book lover who thinks there aren’t enough hours in the day to read the amount of pages I want to!

For as long as I can remember I’ve loved to read. I distinctly remember going to the bookstore with my mom around the age of 8, and being told I was allowed three books. We then ran around town doing errands, and by the time we got home that afternoon I had finished one book and was halfway through another! Needless to say, my mom thought it was time to get me a library card!

My love started with some iconic childhood favourites, such as A Series of Unfortunate Events, anything by Judy Blume, Anne of Green Gables, and Harry Potter.

Of course I love to read, but I’m obsessed with talking about books, which has lead me to here, where you’ll find reviews, thoughts, and more!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or simply want to chat! I’m always up for meeting new bookish friends.

I also have an Instagram account where I talk about all things books, check it out: pocket.full.of.books
