Hi, I’m Jodie Moone & welcome to Pagesofthemoone.com!
I’m a twenty-something book blogger and book-obsessed soul who currently lives in Derbyshire, England, with my Corgi, Cheddar and non-bookish Husband.
What started as a place to scream about books has quickly become a space I’ve crafted to… well, scream about books, share book reviews, writing advice, mental wellness and lifestyle.
Being a writer, I’ve always had things I’ve jotted down or typed for myself, but in 2020 I took the plunge to carve something for myself out on the web. I became a book blogger to share my views and thoughts on books because so often, there has been no one to listen to me in my day-to-day life.
Books have been a constant in my life since I can remember. I’ve always found an escape with them, especially in difficult times, and as I’ve grown older, I’ve found them more of a necessity. It shocks me, even now, that writing my own book didn’t cross my mind till the last few years, but here we are.
If you’re ever looking for me, you may find me in the midst of editing my first book and in various relationships with fictional characters or on Instagram, where Cheddar (the corgi) is a regular.
Pseudonym, or not a pseudonym?
Jodie Moone, for full transparency, is a pseudonym. My real name is Jodie, but my surname I wished to keep off the internet (as much as I can do). This is in part due to my full-time day job in healthcare, and also because of my husbands growing career, and his family. Since I stole his surname when we exchanged jewellery. The name Jodie Moone came to me because I usually write, or blog, at night. I added the ‘e’ because it’s the most popular letter in my full name (when it was my maiden name). It felt more fitting for me than my current surname, especially with hoping to be published in the young adult category, particularly romance.
In 2019, I decided to expand on my work and began as a contributor with The Mighty. Since then, I’ve written for other publications and have currently joined up with another website which is soon to be announced. Elsewhere, I also freelance as a content writer and work for NHS England.
While I can’t announce too much, I’m ‘hopefully’ able to share with you I’m partaking in an Anthology to raise money for something dear to my heart, and have no updates on my book as its being edited.For more up to date information, you can always find me on Instagram @pagesofthemoone or @jodiemoone
The Island Library Podcast
I’m one, of two, co-hosts for The Island Library Podcast. Laura and I met through writing, and become good friends and eventually launched a podcast we absolutely adore doing.
A weekly book podcast where two friends talk about books they’ve read and decide whether they’d take them to a desert island with them. Welcome, to The Island Library. A fun twist on the get-to-know-you-question. But there’s a twist the hosts only get 10 slots, and once they’ve filled them, books will be thrown into the ocean.
