Welcome to my blog!
I’m a 26-year-old reader from London, England and I started writing this blog to keep a record of my reading history. It also meant that I could combine my addiction to books with my passion for writing. If I can also encourage other people to pick up an amazing book they’d never heard of before, that’s a huge bonus.
I love fiction and non-fiction of all kinds and flavours. I’ll read classics (not just by the Brontës), bestsellers, cookery books, trashy (or not) horror stories, children’s books… anything that comes my way, really. I tend to buy books which have caught my eye in a second-hand bargain bin or a charity shop, or because someone has raved about a book with such a fanatical look in their eye that I just had to know what all the fuss was about. It means that my choices sometimes seem increasingly random, but I love discovering something different.
I read in any spare second of the day, whether that’s while I’m travelling to work on the train, eating breakfast, or waiting in a queue. I’m also part of a book group where I get to discover books I ‘should’ have read but haven’t and pretend to feel intellectual for a couple of hours a month…
I love recommending books to people, and if a book I think you’ll love turns out to be the best book you’ve ever read (which has happened a few times) it makes my day.
I hope you find a book here which will inspire you to give something different a try!
