Screenshot_2017-08-19-10-54-51-1-1-1 copyJaimeKristal is a book blogger and bookstagrammer. Other than reading, she enjoys writing, musical theatre, and travel. JK studied English Lit (honours) at York University in Toronto, Creative Writing at Loyalist College in Belleville, and then returned to Toronto for her postgraduate studies in Publishing (high honours) at Centennial College.

After graduation, JK moved to London England to work as a librarian for two years. However, she always dreamed of living in Ireland and is now currently located in Galway. She is planning to move back to Canada in the autumn with her intended destination being the Quinte Region, but Toronto is a possibility if she can find a position with one of the Big 5 publishers. For now she is happy doing freelance editing for indie authors to fulfill her editor-soul while working as a receptionist at a four-star hotel.

When she does not have her nose stuck in a book, JK can be found crocheting while watching Netflix, performing at her local theatre, participating in NaNoWriMo, attempting to learn a new language (French and Irish did not go well, next up ASL!), hosting book-themed tea parties for her friends, or travelling to all the places she has not yet been.

JK is available for collaboration on the following:

  • book reviews of ARCs
  • participating in book tours
  • cover reveals
  • author interviews
  • guest posts and reviews
  • sponsored posts relating to books/publishing industry
  • influencer posts of bookish items (booksleeves, bookmarks, lipbalms, candles, etc)

All content can be promoted on this blog, facebook jkbooklover, twitter @JaimeKristal, or instagram @jk.booklover. I would love to learn more about your objectives and figure out ways we can work together. Please reach out to me at
