Welcome to Bluestocking Bookworm!

an intellectual or literary woman.

I write under the pen name C.M. Nelson. Otherwise, you can call me BB or Bluestocking Bookworm. I am from Canada, where I live with my husband of almost two years.

In 2009, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. In 2011, I was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis. I will not talk about these things much here, but it is important for me to mention them. Because of these two chronic, debilitating illnesses, reading and writing have become so much more than just something I like to do. They have become my lifelines. On days when my body is behaving badly, I can still pick up a book or a pen. I can exercise my passion.

So what will you find here? Book reviews, and more informal thoughts on things I am reading or have read. From time to time I may post snippets of things I have written as well. And in November, during NaNoWriMo, all bets are off.

Stay bookish!



Hey BB,
Well done on treating yourself. How much did it cost you? Hope you’re well.

Probably more than I should have spent, LP to be honest. But I think it will be well worth it in the end! 😀
