Hello, my name is Emma-Marie and I’m a bookaholic.
I have loved reading since I was a little girl, when I felt the same way about story time as other kids felt about computer games and penny sweets (I loved those too, just not as much). I looked forward to school library afternoons all week and cherished above all rainy break times when I could stay indoors, find a comfy cushion, and get lost in the pages of my latest paperback.
I love that my 2.5-year-old son has inherited this love of reading. I will often find him sat quietly with a stack of books at his side, telling the stories in his own words and tracing the pictures with his finger.
I’ve never really known what I wanted to do with my life other than to read books and write stories. That’s kind of still where I am now, and It’s a long way off. But I know I’m on the right track so long as I’m still able to do bits of what I love. Now, I write content for the internet, study English Literature, and read far more books than I can ever hope to keep track of — which is what this blog is for.
So, welcome! Expect to find ramblings about books, tea, and probably more books. I intend to post honest reviews and pretty photos of what I’m reading — including classics, bestselling fiction, and novels belonging to my favourite genre of all: crime.
