Welcome to Drizzle & Hurricane Books, a book blog dedicated to young adult books. Here you will find bookish discussions, book reviews, recommendations, but also the endless struggles and happiness of being a book blogger.

This blog is also dedicated to traveling, because it’s a second passion here on Drizzle & Hurricane Books.

☂️About the bloggers : Marie, founder & main blogger (she/her)

The founder of this little corner of the internet kind of hates talking about herself, so…You will be left with a couple of bullet points and the rest is mystery – or most likely, revealed through blog posts.

  • Marie
  • 20-something years old
  • Writing & Communications Graduate
  • French
  • Writer. Professional worrier. Perfectionist. Passionate (Obsessed) Blogger. Greedy.

Okay, to sum it up ? I love young adult books because they are filled with FEELINGS and truth and love. I’m slightly crazy about books, blogging, both make me scream and overreact but all in a good way, and I look up travel fares because it relaxes me. Other than that I am completely normal.

Favorite books of all times: ALL John Green, my favorite being Looking for Alaska (if that weren’t obvious before, hint: name of my blog), The Accident Season, I’ll Give You The Sun, Delirium, The Mara Dyer series, Girl Out of Water, I Was Born For This, The Forbidden Wish, You Asked For Perfect, We Set The Dark On Fire… I am sorry I can’t choose one book, because who chooses ONE FAVORITE BOOK? #bookwormproblems

Favorite places of all times: London, Oxford (UK), New York, Washington D.C (USA), Strasbourg, Lille (France).

☂️ About the bloggers: Nyx, co-blogger (and the founder’s amazing sister) (she/her)

Once upon a time, the founder of this little blog had a sister…Okay. I have a sister and she is the best person on earth. Once a month, she’s going to be taking over the blog for a blog post about anything and everything, whether it’s books or other things that also fascinates us just as much. Tv Shows. Movies. FOOD and more!

🔍 Find Nyx’s Corner and get lost in an incredible amount of bookish, travel and fun blog posts!

  • Addicted to the tv show FRIENDS
  • Hate mornings
  • Kinda stubborn
  • Pizza lover
  • Wish I was a bit taller

  1. Hiii I’m kind of new here but I just wanted to say that YES TRAVELLING – wanderlust is a real thing. I just wish I could travel more often and I love taking photos on trips and books of course are good so this sounds great to me already! 🙂

  2. Oh, my gosh. You’re French. YOU MUST HAVE AN ACCENT. I took French as an elective last term in Uni and I LOVED it. Though I’m quite sad that I didn’t get to learn more than using French in a shopping mall and asking for directions, and I won’t have anyone to practise with. Nice to meet you, Marie! Enchantée!

    1. Oh hm hello, yes I do have an accent, it makes me feel sad when I speak English, haha the French accent is just SO obvious, haha. Oh that’s too bad! Well, if you ever want to practice, you can talk to me in French once in a while, I’d be happy to! Thank you so much, enchantée as well, Kevin! Thank you so much for stopping by and putting a smile on my face! 🙂


    1. YES OH HI HELLO! It’s always SO great to meet fellow French people! 😀
      Hahahaha, oh it makes me even MORE happy to see that you’re thinking the same way as I do. When people are asking me why I read in English, I want to answer them : why WOULD I read in French, ahah.


      1. You’re only the second French blogger using English that I’ve meet! 😀 I feel a little less alone in this big community!
        I don’t understand people’s love for the French language!

  3. Hi Marie! Firstly I must say thank you for filling out my Feature with Followers form on Twitter! Anyways, today is your lucky day because I want to feature YOU on my blog! I am planning to post my Feature with Followers meme on Sunday (June 5th, 2016 PST) and I was wondering if you were interested and have the time to be one of my Featured Followers for June! If so, please respond to this comment ASAP or email me at jbelkbooks[at]gmail.com. If you think that it would be more efficient for us to chat through some form of social media, definitely let me know! It will not take much time — I just plan on asking a few questions and obtaining some more insight on you & your overall blog.

    If you aren’t too aware of this post, I would recommend checking it out here:

    Thanks so much & I look forward to hearing back from you! (:

    P.S. I know it’s a little early, but some people have busy schedules so I like to contact you guys as soon as possible so you have time to chat with me…

  4. Hi Marie! Nice meeting you, and thank you for sharing me the link to your blog! I have to say that I like the name of your blog and the drops of rain on your rating! And one of my all time favorite books is from John Green, I love Looking For Alaska so much. I cried over TFIOS but I’m still not a fan (though I have a TFIOS shirt, lol), and I’m a kind of disappointed with Paper Towns because for me, the movie is better and I hate the ending of PT. 🙂

  5. Hi Marie! I visited your page looking for interesting writing blogs and I found your awesome page! I also adore the Hunger Games books and absolutely love the TV show Friends. Congratulations on your degree!

    I’ve been considering adding book reviews to my blog PrintedFeet and I’m curious what a book review blog involves. What have you found most helpful in growing your blog?

    Thank you for your time! You’ve got a great site!

    1. Hi Grace, and thank you for your lovely comment 🙂 Honestly, just engage with the book blogging community. You can find tons of book bloggers, on WordPress, on Twitter, just searching online -type, “Top Ten Tuesday” for instance and you’ll find tons. Just write blog posts you care about and on books you care about. And engage with the community, leave them comments, talk to them and share your thoughts with them. Growth in numbers doesn’t matter. What matters is how you have fun and share about books with others 🙂


      1. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply so quickly! I really appreciate your advice. I’m new to this whole thing, so I’ll be sure to do plenty of research before getting started. I look forward to your next post!

  6. I’m back again! I’ve followed a few book bloggers, instagrammers and tumblrs for a while and I’ve been inspired to start a new book blog. It’s kind of overwhelming to see everyone’s success, keeping in mind success takes time and hard work. But I have no idea where to start. Could you give me a pointer or two?

    Thanks so much for reading,

    1. Best of luck for your new book blog, I hope you’ll love what you do now! 🙂 Best advice I can give is just to dive in, write blog posts you care about, and comment on other bloggers’ posts with genuine and thoughtful comments, take part in the community and you’ll feel part of it in no time 🙂
