Seven Facts About Me:
- Aside from blogging and reading my main hobby is baking. I have a steadily growing collection of recipe books I get given for Christmas and birthdays, the most recent of which is ‘All Things Marshmallow’.
- I have two all-time favourite series that I read as a child and still love just as much today; Alice in Wonderland and Harry Potter. I am a complete Harry Potter nut; I re-read the whole series at least one every year, I have a copy of the Deluxe Illustrated Edition, I’m going to the Harry Potter Studio Tour for the second time in March, and I have tickets to see Potter and the Cursed Child in July.
- While Harry Potter is the first series I remember reading as a child it was the Twilight series that actually hooked me on reading and introduced me to the Young Adult genre.
- I’ve taken part in GISHWHES (the Greatest Ever Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen) for the past three years with a group of friends from all over the world. It has been three of the most insane, fun, sleep deprived, and intense weeks of my life.
- I’ve also taken part in NaNoWriMo every year for the last three years. I haven’t yet managed to complete 50,000 words but hopefully next year I will.
- I currently work as an Allocator for Marks & Spencer (basically I’m in charge of sending out stock for my department and trading new and reduced lines) but eventually I’m hoping to move into a Buying role within the business. Very different from book blogging I know.
- This is actually the fourth blog I’ve had in three years but the first solely dedicate to books. I’m a horrible procrastinator so the other three blogs I’ve had in the past just slowly dwindled out of existence when I stopped writing posts. It’s one of my New Year’s Resolutions to actually keep this blog going and I’m determined to keep it.

I only nominated 10 people because I don’t know that many bloggers on WordPress yet, and I have no clue who has or hasn’t done this award already.
Anyway I hope everyone had a brilliant Christmas and Boxing Day holiday, did everyone get loads of new books? I normally get money from my family so of course I used it all to buy new books, I’m eagerly awaiting them being dispatched to me so I can start reading them.
