About Me

I live in the UK and work as a Library Assistant, which for me is like being a kid in a candy store. I LOVE books, i don't know how anyone can live without them.
Working in a Library is fantastic as it means i have easy access to thousands of different books and can always find something to read. Reading is my escape, a way to leave the world behind and have fantastic adventures.
I love sharing my experiences of books, so this blog is my outlet. Every book I read, I will then post a review of. I try to be positive but if i don't like a book i will genuinely say so. All of my reviews will be personal, original and most importantly honest.
I never give up on books, even if i don't like them i persevere in order to give them a fair chance.

I am an aspiring author - I have written one book which I am trying to get published and am half way through writing a second with loads more hopefully to come.  If anyone has any tips on getting into the business I'm willing to hear them!
Any publishers reading this blog - you're welcome to get in touch. :D

So off i go with a book in my hands.... as usual! :D

I love to do Giveaways etc on my blog, and I love to make them International so I can reach as many of you as possible, but as I don't have limitless funds (In fact most of the time I am broke) I have set up a 'Donate' button, any contribution is welcome and will ensure more Giveaways will take place. I thank you all for your generosity. :D

Hi Becky =)

First, I want to say thank you for your helpful advice on what I can do to start reviewing books and having contest on my blog. You are so sweet! Second, I want to say I love your Linger cast! Very cool actors/actresses you chose =D

I shall return to your blog tomorrow to read more. It's bed time for me and my hubby.

I hope you have a lovely evening and wonderful tomorrow.

Isn't working for the library great???? I miss it myself, being surrounded by books and having the ability to get others to share your love of the printed word.
