About Me

Hi, I’m Tonile!

about my cup and chaucer

I’m 28 and I live in Sydney, Australia. I wrangle digital content and run the social media accounts, blog, and general online community for Dymocks, and in my spare time I try to read my way through a seemingly-endless pile of books.

I live and breathe books, and My Cup and Chaucer is a corner of the internet where I post about exciting new releases on the horizon along with reviews of what I’ve been reading and loving lately. There’s also lots of tea and wine.

A new year brings with it hundreds of new books, and I’ve written a two-part series about all the amazing books coming in 2017. Part one covers January to March, and part two covers April onward. Be sure to check them out and let me know what you’re looking forward to reading this year.

Beyond books, I post other lifestyle content too, including (but not limited to) beauty, skincare, health and wellness, movies, podcasts, and blogging. I suppose My Cup and Chaucer is all about living a happy, healthy, but overall bookish existence.

I have been in the bookselling and publishing industry for nearly ten years and while I’m currently on the bookselling side, I am a trained and qualified proofreader and editor. I take on manuscript assessments and proofreading jobs on an ad hoc basis, so please check my LinkedIn profile and see if we’d be a good fit to work together!

So, welcome. I’m glad you found My Cup and Chaucer, and I hope you are too.
