About Me

My name is a Ionia Martin. I am a writer, a reader, a musician, a photographer and a mother. I am also a book reviewer/blogger and love to read books of many genres/styles and varieties. I love discovering new voices in literature and spend almost every minute of my spare time with a book of one sort or another in front of me.

  1. In my very limiting blogging experience, I have already gained an enormous respect and admiration of you and your peers. I have some direct questions that I would like to ask you about my writing and publishing process. Could you share your email address with me?

  9. Oh Ionia! I have nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award. Have a look at my latest post to see the details or if you prefer not to receive awards, that is absolutely fine :)

  14. Hi! Everyone misses you and hope you get better soon!
    I’ve nominated you for a ‘Versatile Blogger Award’…because you’re awesome of course. If you’re not the awards type that’s cool but if you are go get it here http://wp.me/p3CH62-pt ! Yeah, there are rules but they’re pretty easy to follow. Thanks for reading my silliness!
    : )


  15. Welcome back my beloved Mentor Ionia. I missed you so much. You are so utterly awesome and the fact that you kicked cancer’s ass is NOT surprising to me at all because I knew it all along. If you’re up for it, please pick up the Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award that I’ve nominated you for. http://wp.me/p38Uaw-cS . I love you. Lily. :)


  16. I have nominated you for the Sisterhood of the World Blogger Award. I know another award is a pain, but I did promise the nominator that I would try and fulfill the requirements. You are under no such obligation. The good news is the nominations should be blogs that I enjoy reading and yours is certainly that. Go here to see the blog: http://wp.me/p2Qoij-Uc

  18. You (and your blog) came up in a discussion I was having with Rara about literary minded bloggers I should be following, reading, interacting with, etc…
    I like what I’ve seen so far.

  20. I found your blog through the interview you just posted with Rose. I am always on the lookout for literary blogs. Mine is mostly literary. I just noticed, being a fairly new blogger, what’s with like half the comments here having to do with blogger awards? :-) I received one a few months back, a nomination, but don’t quite get it. It feels like a chain letter kind of thing to me, but I see that you simply accept each one as an honour. Hope to read more of your blog soon.


    • Very nice to meet you. I agree about the chain letter type of feel. I appreciate them but stopped getting involved with them a long time ago. I look forward to checking out your blog!
