I have always loved reading, and read from a very young age, my father is an avid reader and I think this is where my love of books comes from. The number of times I would get in trouble for reading under the blanket with a torch after 'lights out' is unimaginable. One of my dad's favourite things to say to me is "Haven't you ever heard of a library?" as I have a tendency to purchase a lot of my 'favourite' books, although he is usually the first one at my bookcase when he he comes over to borrow a book from me to read.
The reason I decided to create this blog is to pass on my love of books to others and to be able to have a bit of freedom to be creative myself. I realise there are millions of book blogs out there and I'm under no illusion that I will get lots of followers, but I don't mind and this is not my goal. So in between working full time for a not-for-profit community organisation that supports people living with mental illness, their families and friends, studying a post graduate degree at uni and looking after my 2 cats and 1 husband I will be blogging!!!!

1. Devouring books
2. Rambling about said books
It forces me to read widely and often, even when the temptation to collapse in front of a B grade horror movie is overwhelming.
This blog is a way not only for people to find new and exciting books to read, but to also discover new authors to read
