Welcome to my blog 🙂

My beautiful banner illustration was created by the fabulously talented Demelsa Haughton, please check out her website!
A few things about my philosophy with this blog:
I only review books that I have genuinely enjoyed recently. If I receive the book from Net Galley or a publisher, I will say in the review. Mainly the books I review are ones I’ve picked up at my local library or found in my local bookshop.
Reviews will be posted on Amazon, Good Reads, Tumblr and Pinterest. The readership of this blog is rapidly expanding, and in 2016 I had readers from 80 countries. The majority of visitors come from the UK, US, Brazil, Australia, Ireland, Canada and Germany (in that order); and most are referred by search engines or Twitter. However, I’m getting an increasing number of referrals through Pinterest.
I like to give talented artists and writers the credit they deserve, and support campaigns such as #PicturesMeanBusiness and We Need Diverse Books.
I’m a qualified primary teacher, currently self employed as a tutor, and I’m a member of Scbwi (hello to all my critique group!)and I’m an ambassador for the Golden Egg Academy. At the moment I’m working on picture books with Golden Egg Academy, mentored by Tessa Strickland, and am submitting my Middle Grade books to agents.
But mostly I’m a lifelong library fanatic, and book lover! I support any initiatives to get people reading and writing!
Happy reading everyone, thankyou for visiting 🙂
