Welcome to my blog! Whether you love to read or have a yearning to be a writer, I hope this blog will have something for you. I love to talk about books, so let’s start a conversation. I look forward to getting to know you all, and to sharing our love of words.
For as long as I can remember I have loved being surrounded by books, but for a long while I stopped reading and became a book collector. My shelves are now overflowing with books that have not been read. This blog will chart my attempts to bring my TBR into some sort order, starting with the slightly overwhelming moment of truth when I count just how big my TBR is.
I now carry a book with me at all times and feel lost without one, although I am not immune to a reading slump. At the moment I read mainly young adult fiction, but I also read historical fiction, contemporary fiction, historical non-fiction and some biographies. I am a sucker for a beautiful cover and this has introduced me to some great books and great authors.
I have wanted to be a writer since I was very young, but lack confidence and have actively avoided writing for a very long time. This blog will chart my attempts to achieve my childhood dream. This will start with some resolutions and include regular updates on progress, hints and tips along the way and inspiration to get started.
