About Me

Hello! I’m Sunny. Nice to meet you! I'm a twenty-one-year-old from Australia with a penchant for all things books, feminism, and pop culture. I’m an avid reader, a writer, and an advocate of self-love and body positivity. I’m passionate about literature, matters of social justice, and creating and investing in safe spaces and communities for ALL women and girls. I'm a Communications graduate (Journalism and Public Relations) and was formerly an editor for Vertigo (2020), a digital and print student magazine that you can read here

Since picking up my first chapter book, I was bound to spend my life turning pages. Even with the ever-growing distraction of blue light and shiny screens, reading continues to be an unshakeable childhood infatuation. It remains the most exciting and satisfying way to go about feeding my vivid imagination. Initially, it was a hobby I often cherished alone but after a particularly boring Summer holiday in 2011, I created 'A Sunny Spot'. It seems you found yourself visiting this very corner of the web so welcome and holla! 

While A Sunny Spot predominately discusses books, its content has since evolved in the past two years or so to also reflect other passions of mine. As a young woman of mixed race navigating an increasingly challenging social and political climate, this blog remains a safe place for me to both manically fangirl (Harry Styles, am I right?) and to initiate honest, hard, and necessary conversations about things that matter.

Currently, I am doing a double major in Journalism and Public Relations. When I'm not studying, I like to listen to (and sometimes star in) podcasts, indulge my obsession with fictional characters and daytime television talk shows, practice Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, read more diverse #ownvoices fiction, and to toy with beginning my own YA contemporary novel. I also, like most Gen Z's, engage frequently and obsessively with all forms of social media. Feel free to reach out here: Twitter | Goodreads | Instagram 

I have been described by one friend as “uncool in a cool way” (thanks, I guess…) but I wear that badge fairly proudly. I am a semi-functioning young woman who seeks refuge in numerous fandoms and communities, whilst painting everything in Pink and pastels. 

In the future, I would love to be a freelance writer, journalist, editor, blogger, author, or publicist - I'll take what I can get. I know that everyone thinks Magazines are a dying industry, but surely Millenials and Gen Z will be the ones to resurrect it? I for one, a magazine junkee, volunteer as tribute. Please hire me! 

Now that you know more about me than you probably wanted to hear, it’s your turn! I am gracefully stepping down and passing you the baton. Thank you for spending your time with my small but love-filled blog. I hope you enjoyed your visit! Stay lovely. 

Wait. You had more questions? Oh okay, well maybe this will be of some use.

I’m very confused. What is this blog really about?
A Sunny Spot began as and remains a book blog. But as I evolve and change, I hope that my blog will too. So it would be very misleading for you to believe that my blog is limited to discussions on books. Truthfully, I essentially post a bunch of gobbly-gook on a whole bunch of things and cross my fingers that it’s well-received.

Where can I see more of your work? Podcasts, interviews, videos, or commissioned pieces?

Ok so you review books, could you review mine?
Let’s see what we can work out. Please refer to my 'review policy' for further details on this matter.

I’m a blogger, could you put my blog button up?
There are so many wonderful blogs that I love but seeing as I am so spoilt for choice; it’s become difficult to display every lovely blogger's button on my ‘blogs I adore’ page. So please don't be offended if yours isn't among them. It’s probably a result of my bad technological skills and overall laziness when it comes to updating things. But if you'd like to do a button swap, let me know and I'll be more than happy to see what I can do. 

Your blog looks really nice! Which designer's work are you wearing?
Oh why thank you! This bad boy is designed by wearing Kelly over at Diva Booknerd who is all sorts of wonderful.

You've been M.I.A. for ages! Are you like dead or something?
*rises from coffin* Nope, I'm still here and very much alive! Thank you for your concern! 

This has been useless. I still have something to ask! How do I contact you?
Sorry about that. If you want to contact me, please leave a message in the comment form available on my 'Contact Me' page and I will get back to you shortly. Otherwise, I can be contacted through various social networking sites more directly.
