Welcome to my little blog

My name is Julie, I’m 45 and I am a book addict.

I am a compulsive book buyer and, as such, my TBR is out of control. So I have taken a vow that I will not but any new books for the whole of 2017.

I will be reading only books that I already own, and reviewing them on this blog. So this blog will be a little different to most book blogs as, for the next 12 months, there will be no reviews of new publications. I hope that will not mean you do not find it interesting!

You can find more information on my challenge here.

For this reason, I cannot accept any books for review at this time.

My reading tastes are wide and diverse, and I will give most things a go, but my favourite genres are literary fiction, crime & thrillers, classics , historical and romantic fiction. I am not a great reader of science fiction or horror (with the exceptions of John Wyndham and Stephen King, whom I both adore) but I never say never! I have no interest in reading erotica.

My reviews will always be my honest opinion of the book – the good, the bad and the ugly.

Aside from reading, I love to travel (I am an independent travel agent, until such time as I can find someone to pay me to read all day! My business website can be found here) and I have two daughters and three step-daughters, so I cannot promise that posts on these topics and other musings that occur to me will not appear alongside the book reviews.

I hope you will enjoy my ruminations and I look forward to getting to know you.
