Reading in the Rain was started up on the 17th of May 2012 by myself Ally Dewing.
I would describe this blog as being my nerdy corner of the internet. There will be predominantly book-ish discussions and reviews, movie reviews as well as some lifestyle posts. Of course there will be the occasional miscellaneous post thrown in but what a surprise they’ll be!
As for myself, I am a bibliophile, bookworm, movie nerd, comic book geek, TV addict and a lover of photography, cinematography, writing and languages.
It all began when I was bored. I read (and continue to read) a huge variety of blogs, it just so happened that in 2012 I was a little obsessed with fashion and beauty blogs -despite the fact I’ve never worn makeup and could never be bothered to dress up- so I set up my own little fashion blog called Paris in the Rain. I posted a collection of outfits – all without photos of my face on due to fear of …I don’t know what actually! Soon it developed into a mismatched lifestyle blog consisting of everything from cupcake recipes to reviews as well as the occasionally return of an outfit post. I found my real passion in books, I’ve always been an avid reader and I needed a place where I could talk about what I’m reading. So I thought “Why not here?” And so with a little editing – including a rename – Reading in the Rain was born in July 2015! But even now this blog is still developing. I’ve sort of found where I’d like it to be and where I’d like it to go. And I guess that’s what writing is all about. It’s a rather wonderful way to find yourself.
