About me

Hi.... thanks for stopping by!!


I am Bex, a teacher, wife and mother to a gorgeous bubbly and

energy draining 6 year old! (Not always in that order!) I am a self

confessed book worm and love nothing more than snuggling up

under a cosy blanket with a cuppa and a good book.  Except

maybe reading a story with my son, his love of characters and

stories is infectious (although his ability to never get bored of the same book read every bedtime can be a test!)  I have read for as long as I can remember and try to squeeze in some reading every chance I get - Yes I was that girl walking to school with her nose in a book hoping she didn't fall into a pothole!

For me a great book transports you into another world.  It sucks you in and leaves you wanting more when it is over.  It makes you believe in the story, root for (or hate with a vengeance) the characters and pull on every emotional heartstring you have! That feeling of emptiness when you read the last page of a book is possibly the best and worst feeling at the same time!

I decided to start this blog because I wanted to share my thoughts and reviews of books I have read.  I also share my thoughts on my bookstagram account and twitter and goodreads.  You can find links to those below.

I would also like to include some thoughts about my life and general musings on a variety of topics most recently I have branched out into writing about self care practices and the way I am bringing that into my day to day life.  Writing is something I have wanted to do for so long, so what better way than to share my words with the big wide world (or possibly just some friends and family who take pity on me!) 

I have decided that 2023 is the year that I start doing some kind of writing, not just book reviews on my blog.  You may start to see some different things on my blog this year so watch this space!


I would love to find inspiration for new reads, so please if you stumble across my humble blog feel free to comment or contact me with recommendations  and your MUST reads.  If you are a new upcoming or established author and want to share your work with me in return for an honest review I would love to have a chance to read your work.  I am not currently accepting timed submissions as I want to focus more on my writing however I am always happy to add books to my TBR if you have no timescale on a review!  I ma happy to be contacted via the contact form at the bottom of the page.
