Have You Met Melissa?

Ready for another weekend of Have You Met goodness??

Let me introduce you to another lovely blogger.

Haaaaaaaaave you met Melissa?

Melissa Gibbs

Melissa Gibbs blogs over at The Bookish Wanderer. Mel is 21, based in Montreal, Canada. She’s recently graduated from college with a literature degree and is also working as a freelance game blogger. She posts three times a week normally and writes about a variety of topics! Book hauls, tags, reviews, lifestyle, gaming, poetry, music, and everything else!


Mel has been blogging since back in February. She currently has over 400 followers! Why is her blog called the Bookish Wanderer? Because she loves reading and has an incurable case of wanderlust! It also has a double meaning because of the way books make your mind and imagination wander. Now, I’m going to let her explain what her blog is about:

For those searching for some inspiration and laughs,Β Β for anyone who is a connoisseur of books, orΒ for those who have a love of music and games, this is the place for you!

She is such a creative and fun person to talk to and this is reflected in her blog. She also finds the most fun tags to do! We’ve been following each other for a while now, and I love seeing what she’ll post next!

Here are some of my favourite posts of hers!

Good old Paramore

Mel has a running series where she shares her favourite playlists with us most Saturdays. My favourite is this one, where she reminisces about love songs, and what her and her boyfriend consider ‘their’ songs πŸ™‚


Mel has recently graduated from college, and in this post she shares some advice and tips about what she’s learned during her college experience.


Mel has her first tattoo! She thought a lot about what she wanted, and decided on a floral tattoo. Specifically ‘baby’s breath’. She even looked up the meaning of it:

Besides being an accent to bouquets and a symbol for pure/devoted love,Β it also symbolizes self discipline and self love.

She looked up lots of inspiration online for style and placement, and I think we can agree that it came up gorgeous!!

Look at these cuties! Mel and Robert have recently celebrated 5 years together! Mel wrote the sweetest post reflection on their relationship πŸ™‚

Mel loves books! She has always found the most amazing book tags to do πŸ˜€ This is one of my favourite ones πŸ™‚

We both agree that The Last of Us looks amazing

Mel occasionally blogs about video games as well. In this one, she shares video games that have amazing artwork. Something that always pulls me to games.


So Mel is a huuuuge fan of music. So much so, that she made her own tag about it! She came up with fun questions that make you think about which artist/song would fit with it. I’ve recently done it too as she was kind enough to tag me πŸ™‚

Melissa, you are such an inspiring and fun blogger! I love seeing what you’ll post next and seeing your name show up in my notifications tab and in the general blogosphere πŸ™‚ I hope you’re having a great day wherever you are!!

So, have you guys checked out Melissa yet?

  1. Still fun seeing these series continue. Love seeing that Melissa is a huge fan of music because I am a huge fan of music: now that is something that something people don’t believe when I tell them I am a huge fan of music. Well, we all have our tastes: my tastes are mainly for two genres, but I still love music and I know how to play piano. Nice getting to know another blogger in the wordpress world.
