I’m a 33 year old book blogger from South Wales, I do have a full time job but I love all things bookish so created a blog to share the love and bookish chat!
I am open to review requests and will give an indication when contacted of how long it will take roughly for me to provide this review. I am a compulsive reader so tend to go through 5+books a week.
I will read all genres, I do avoid Sci-fi and erotica!
When not blogging or working, I am usually enjoying time with family and friends. As much as I am a social butterfly, sometimes I love time by myself with a good film or book.
What made you decide to start your blog?
I love books, I joined the Bookstagram community and quickly made some real long-lasting friendships. I decided to start a blog as a hobby because I dislike any fiction, I create myself.
Is blogging your job?
No by day I am a secondary school teacher.
If You Could Travel Anywhere In The World, Where Would It Be?
Without a doubt in my mind, Dollywood!! I adore Dolly Parton! I definitely think I should’ve been a country girl.
As A Child, What Did You Want To Be When You Grew Up?
For a while I wanted to be a princess! Then I decided that teaching was the ultimate dream.
Do You Have A Favourite Accent?
Definitely Irish! Especially Southern Ireland
What’s Your Favourite Quote and Why?
Progress not perfection.
It’s so easy to be over critical of ourselves in this day and age. As long as you strive to be better than yesterday- perfection is not important.
Life begins the moment you realise you don’t have to prove anything to anyone.
I think this quote speaks for itself really!
What’s Your Favourite Hobby?
Reading, mindful colouring or Crochet.
What are your 3 Favourite TV shows?
Friends, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Waterloo Road.
What music do you listen to?
My taste in music is very mixed: Paloma Faith, Westlife, Carrie Underwood, Dolly, Eminem. Anything I can sing along to.
