If you’ve stumbled across my blog – or happened upon it on purpose – then you should be aware that I’m all about the books … with a pitter-patter of cats, and a healthy dash of gin for good measure! I’m a slave to words; as an avid book fanatic and a wannabe writer.
In the books ‘department’ of this blog you’ll find:
all the books I’ve reviewed arranged a-z by author’s surname
what makes the difference between a ★ and a ★★★★★ book
from my ‘book of the month‘ to ‘all-time-favourites‘ and ‘under the spotlight’ books
where there are books there are choices, and where there are choices there are lists … I love lists
for authors and publishers: everything I think you need to know about me and how I go about reviewing your books
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.
