I read somewhere once, that we’re either creators of information or digesters of information. I’ve spent most of my life devouring words in an attempt to satiate my desire for knowledge. However, my blog is about sharing my love of words and books; an endeavour to redress this imbalance.

Here you’ll find e-ARC book reviews, books I’ve always meant to read and, of course, favourites that you just have to re-read. In time, I will also publish book lists and recommended reads based on authors. Please also check out my bookstagram site for short reviews and random quips. And, of course, if you’d like to receive my reviews more regularly, please subscribe. Thanks for stopping by!
