About Me

Welcome to my blog! I’m Lisa and I’m a self-confessed book addict. I’ve lived in Hampshire in the South of England for 40-something years, and love all things book-related, coffee and owls.

My world pretty much evolves around books. So if I go missing, you’ll generally find me under a massive blanket or in the bath with my nose in a book or Kindle. Sometimes though I’m reading about books on Goodreads. Or scrolling through loads of bookish Tweets on Twitter. Or trying not to request ARC’s on NetGalley. I’ve also just recently joined Instagram.

I mainly read horror, psychological thrillers and historical fiction, but lately I’ve been getting into some non-fics, like true crime and the natural world. I also enjoy poetry, short stories and occasionally go for some light-hearted reads or humour.

My other passion is the coast and countryside. Off I go with my partner and we walk. And walk. And walk. I absolutely love nature, particularly birds and trees.

We pack a picnic, a flask of coffee, the binoculars and some wet weather gear, (this is Britain after all) and off we trot!

It’s usually the only time I don’t have a book or my kindle in my hand. Not only is it great for the mind, but also the body and soul. I have to do some kind of exercise, as I like food and red wine far too much!

I mainly post book reviews here, but when something really exciting happens, like receiving bookpost or reaching a milestone, I like to share, so there may be the odd photo or two.

Anyway, enough of my waffle, and if you’ve read this far, thank you!

Happy reading folks!!
