Hello!  My name is Ella and I'm the owner of Once Upon a Bookish Time.  I'm a slightly crazy teen who lives in Middle Earth (New Zealand), and I'm obsessed with books and fairy tales (hence the name).   

I started this blog to share my reviews, thoughts, rants and discussions about my favourite things: books.

 I should be back in the next few days with a book review of such, and/or maybe a better introduction about myself. At the moment, I'm trying to work my way around Blogger, without accidentally blowing something up or pulling out all my hair.  I'm HATING Google+ - does anyone with blogging experience, know how to get rid of Google+ from their profile and Blogger???  If you could tell me, that'd be great.

In the next week or so, once Blogger and I become better friends things should start running more smoothly.  Until then!



  1. Yaaay! OH YOU GOT A BLOG!! This is fabulous. :)) I can't wait to read more of your posts. And welcome to the blogging world officially. (I don't have Google+ because, frankly, it's I can't help you there.)

    1. I know! I was thinking of starting a blog for some time and then decided to take the plunge and do it. I'm so glad I did! I know that I'm going to really enjoy blogging! Helps that lovely supportive bloggers like you are out there :) Google+ is SO annoying. I'm relieved that I managed to delete it without accidentally hacking into the M16 ;)

      Thanks for commenting! Come back soon!

  2. I'm just as mystified as google+ as you, when it comes to anything to do with google+. It straight out confuses me, which means I should probably take the time to look into it and work out how to use it for my blog, but nay, I have nought.

    I'm looking forward to reading your blog! Fairytales and fairytale retellings are a love of mine, too, so I'm very excited to see what is to come! Lovely to meet you, Ella!

    1. The thing that annoys me about Google+ (apart from adding the annoying '+' sign after it), is that there seems to be NO POINT to it. To me it just seems to be a bit of a copycat facebook (though I don't have facebook so I can't really say...) but IT'S JUST SO CONFUSING AND NOTHING ON IT MAKES SENSE.
      Thankfully I managed to delete it, but it took a couple of hours, frantic googling ) and the amount of HASSLE I had trying to get there... *sigh*

      My obsession with Fairytales and fairytale retellings is getting rather scary. I JUST NEED TO READ THEM ALL RIGHT NOW.
      On the blog I hope to introduce a few features that are slightly fairytaleish ;)
      I also hope to add fairytale elements to my book reviews. Not sure how I'm working it out :)

      Thanks for your lovely comment, Romi (beautiful name)!

    2. Well I can't wait to see how your blog progresses- it's exciting, being here from the beginning! I'm sure you'll do amazing things- your first review is already up and it's splendid!

    3. Thanks so much, Romi! Hmmm... even though it's lovely for you to say it, I'm not sure about amazing... mad, crazy and disastrous come to mind ;)

      Thanks for the lovely comment!
