Hello and welcome to my blog
My name is Nicola, I am 31 years old and live in Northern Ireland. As a child, I always had my head in a book, discovering new adventures and meeting new friends in fantastical worlds. Around the age of 13, I fell out of touch with my love of books, cause I was being bullied for always having my head stuck in book rather than talking to other people, the only time I could use the excuse of reading was when we had to read for class. This is where I always stood out from the crowd because I was the only one in the class who had either read or liked the book. During the summer holidays, while in essex visiting my grandparents my grandfather and I would sit in the sunroom reading our books till late at night….. Oh how i wish i could still sit with him. As I got older, I started to realise that reading wasn’t an “uncool” activity and slowly but surely, became an even bigger bookworm, devouring books as fast as my grandfather and i could could buy them. I have always been an avid reader, a lover of the written word, of hidden meanings and mysterious adventures, but I think that as I grew up, I realised that reading was more than just a hobby.
I decided to start this blog back in June 2019 just simply for my own reviews….. but I never knew how many groups, authors, book tour hosts, book buddies and friends I would meet all thanks to this wonderful blog.
After spending the entirety of secondary school studying basic classes that either bored me or totally confused me , The only classes where I was free to truly express myself and where I actually adored my time and succeeded were my English and Literature classes in secondary school, I would really love to be able to pick this up again some day……. and who knows maybe even write my own book??.
Like many of you in today’s world, I’m still unsure of what exactly it is I want to do as a career, but I know that it includes books, and that’s all I need to know for now. I hope that you will find this blog cheerful and inviting. i hope that by reading my reviews you’ll leave with a smile on your face and a book in your hand. I hope that this will be a place where you will want to come to wind down after a hard day, or discover new favourite books, share your passion with me, or just have a nice chat.
Thanks for reading
