Hi, I’m Jo & welcome to Pagesofthemoone.com!
I’m a thirty-year-old UK book blogger living in the East Midlands with my Corgi, Cheddar and non-bookish Husband.
What started as a place to write my thoughts has quickly become a place to shout about books, scream in excitement at new releases and cry about endings which have rocked me.
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 Jo, but my surname I wish to keep off the internet (as much as I can). 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 surname.
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 joined up with another website soon to be announced. Having left the NHS in 2022, I’m now a digital content marketing executive for an agency in the UK.
I’d hope to have updates here, but alas, I do not. I’m writing slowly but surely. If you’d like to keep up to date with all of that, you can find me on Twitter @jodielmoone or on IG as @pagesofthemoone.
The Island Library Podcast
I’m one of two co-hosts for The Island Library Podcast. Laura and I met through writing, becoming good friends who have 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. This 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.
