Hello

Hello and thank you for visiting my book blog.  I have been blogging about books since September 2016 when I found myself reading a book a day whilst caring for my mother during her final months.

I would sit by her bed and read, and read, and read… One day I sent an email to an author who’s book had really touched me and I had the need to let her know how much I had enjoyed it. This led to me signing up with NetGalley to obtain her new release which she had authorised me to read prior to publication….  as they say the rest is history!

The dog in my logo is my Jack Russell called Birsay – if you want to know more about him click on his name and you will be taken to his facebook page!  The logo was drawn by a good friend of mine.

Please have a look around the site where you will find plenty book reviews to give you some idea of your next read.

I also have “In The Author’s Chair‘ feature where I first published an interview with Owen Mullen. It’s taken longer than expected but I am excited to share with you the second interview, this time with Julie Butterfield.  If you are an author / blogger and would like to share some thoughts with me for this section then please do get in touch!

When I choose a book, I am looking for a read that will draw me in and spark my imagination from the start.  I want to find it impossible to put down, for it to unnerve me and leave me breathless until I reach the end. If you think your book fits this description then please drop me a message and I will be pleased to read and review for you!

*Some of these reviews are written by friends and family.  There will also be guest posts from a friend’s bookclub and from some younger readers too!
