Hi! And welcome to my blog.


My name is Melisa and I am a 26 year old MA Publishing graduate at the City University London. I’ve been blogging with my friends on Booknuts.nl for about 5 years now, but decided I also wanted my own little space. That is how Princess of Reading was born. Even though Dutch is my mother tongue, I prefer English.

My 2 years in London have been very interesting. During my year at my Publishing MA I interned at London Book Fair and the YA/Children’s department of Bloomsbury. Because of Harry Potter, Bloomsbury was my ultimate dream, and I loved every minute of that internship. At the moment I am the Social Media Executive for Eaglemoss/Hero Collector.

Before all of this I worked for a the Dutch publisher Best of YA and I was part of their YA Promoteam. We helped promote YA in bookstores, at events, interviewed authors and helped where ever we could. I loved it so much that I didn’t want to let it go after our year was up, so I stared blogging.
