Hi! And welcome to my blog.


My name is Melisa and I am a 27 year old MA Publishing graduate at the City University London. I used to blog with my friends on Booknuts.nl and did so for over 5 years, but I decided I also needed my own little space. That is how Princess of Reading was born.

My 2,5 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 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, and that’s how I started blogging.
