Greetings and welcome to The Alley-Cat7


Hello everyone who has accidentally (or on purpose) stumbled on this blog. My name is Alice, I am an English-French translator who aspires to one day translate novels. In my sparse free-time, I devour books with an insatiable hunger, write stories until my hands feel as if they are about to fall off, and paint  while listening to audiobooks.

If you have enjoyed reading my book reviews, then please feel free to email me a book recommendation. You can send me an email at alicemontgomeryreviews@gmail.com. I adore discovering new and amazing books! Please note that I no longer accept review requests.

For a list of my book reviews: click here!

What sort of books do I like to read? I will read almost anything. Most of the books I read are fiction with the occasional biography or reference book thrown in. Usually, I will read young adult novels, contemporary fiction, classic novels, dystopian novels, science fiction, fantasy, thriller, mystery, children’s fiction, middle grade fiction, graphic novels & manga, historical fiction novels, and romance novels.

My favorite book is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë.

My favorite authors are: Charlotte Brontë, Amélie Nothomb, Haruki Murakami, Rainbow Rowell and Marie Lu.

Ten Things About Me

1.  I love to write!

2. I always have one earbud in my ear. I look like a secret agent waiting for my next mission.

3. I have a weird affinity for flamingos.

4. I adore cookies, people sometimes call me “the cookie queen.”

5. I wish I could turn into a mermaid and spend the rest of my life in the ocean.

6. I dream of living in a medieval castle with a drawbridge and an alligator filled moat (to keep away the rift raft).

7. I would love to learn Latin and Japanese. And yes, that’s Latin the dead language.

8. When I was a child, I looked a lot like Mara Wilson who played Matilda Wormwood in the 1994 film Matilda.

9. I spend way too much time looking at bullet journal templates.

10. When I was a kid I wanted to bring all the dinosaurs back from extinction. My plan was to keep them in my backyard and feed them giant tubs of ice cream. It could work… right? 😉


1. Do you earn money from the ads on this blog?

No. This blog is just a hobby (for now).

2. Do you receive money for reviewing books? 

I wish! As I mentioned, my blog is just a hobby blog. Every book that I review on this site, I either bought myself, borrowed from the library, won in a giveaway, or received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.  I decided to begin reviewing books because I figured that it would be a good way to challenge myself to think critically about the books I read.

3. What is your posting schedule?

Monday: Book Review

Sometimes, I will also post on Thursdays, but it really depends on how busy I am at a given time.

4. How do I follow or subscribe?

 Look for the “subscribe” button in the right sidebar, or at the bottom of the page.

There are three ways to subscribe: 1. By email. Type in your email and follow the instructions (at the top left of the page, or at the bottom of the page if you are on mobile) 2. If you are a WordPress blogger, click the follow button on the top left of the screen in the black toolbar. 3. Twitter @thealleycat7, follow me and check for my blog updates. 4. Instagram @thealleycat7.  It’s just that simple!


Best wishes,

  2. yes, you have a friend in me and I love cookies. Touching story “The Maid”. That is why we cannot look to others to define who we are, nor to our work. We are more than what you see externally. And that is where many people miss it. Our true self lies within. It takes another who knows who they are to see it.
