With Christmas now only one month away, my thoughts have turned to festive gifting for my fellow booklovers … and, admittedly, for myself too. And hurrah! we’re spoilt for choice this year …Continue reading “what to buy a booklover this Christmas”
Sometimes, what actually happens is more bizarre than anything that could be imagined. Let’s be honest; you only need to look across the ‘pond’ to the USA to see the truth of that! I’ll be indulging my naturally suspicious inner-self with a few cracking books this month …Continue reading “Non Fiction November #NNFD”
Chocolate and books are unarguably a match made in heaven … I mean, chocolate is the ultimate single-handed hunger cure: you don’t even have to put the book down to keep gobbling. But making the right chocolate-book match is the difference between a romance and a horror story.Continue reading “Indulge with perfectly paired books & chocolate”
Oh my goodness! I am so thrilled you’ve decided to take a look at my blog. Hats off to you for making an excellent decision 😉
If you checked out the About Me page then you’ll know my name is Sarah, and I’m in the midst of a 40-something year long love affair with books. My obsession is the subject of official record too, having been documented in my school report by Mrs Russell when I was the lofty age of 6: “Sarah is often found in a book, and is rather inclined to daydream”. It’s a habit instilled in me by my parents’ gift of nightly bedtime stories, and crystallised by library visits, book-swaps, and some truly gifted authors.
I’m not all about the books … my life is ruled by a supremely strong-minded cat called Grace. So that explains the ‘pawsed’ page of my blog then. Like books, cats have been a lifelong fixation … albeit they are somewhat more difficult to keep on shelves.
After a bit of gentle persuasion from my long-suffering husband (and lots of generous and brilliant advice from Cerys) I’ve now taken the plunge into the world of bogging. I’m pretty new to this – a blogger in stabilisers – and I’m hoping my blogging boo-boos are few and far between.
I’ll do my best to write reviews that are interesting, honest, and hopefully entertaining. A book is sooo much more than chapters, words and pages … it has the ability to captivate your heart and soul as well as your mind … it can create an atmosphere and evoke emotions of all kinds. That’s why I like to make a few additional suggestions of my own for each book; background music, something tasty to nibble, or a cheeky tipple perfectly paired with the character of the book.
