About Bee



Hi there, so here’s the bit where I talk about myself instead.

I’m Gem, a Midlands blogger living in Derbyshire with my husband, two sons, and our senior rescue pets: Rosa the cat and Samson the Labrador.


I love interacting on social media so please find and follow me on the platforms below:

Twitter ~ @Beereader

Instagram ~ beereaderbooks

Pinterest ~ Beereaderbooks

*Stats! Here are my blog stats handy for you:

In January 2019 my view figures were 717, with 505 unique visitors. My blog currently has 369 FABULOUS followers.

On twitter I have 2133 followers.

1119 followers on Instagram.

347 friends on Goodreads.

38k monthly unique viewers on Pinterest.


This blog is here for the stories, and for the books; because I’d like to share just a bit of my passion for these in the hopes of inspiring new readers, self care and kindness. I also love food, history and nature/ the outdoors so also write blog features around these themes. We love nature and exploring as a family on staycations and visits we are also members of the RSPB & National Trust.


As a carer, a library assistant and a literacy volunteer, reading and blogging are things I enjoy doing for my own wellbeing. Depending on how many plates I have spinning at any given time, I may not always be posting content but I love to support authors, small businesses, publishers, indie bookshops, libraries and fellow bloggers whenever I can.

I am also a passionate mental health, equality and disability advocate.
