Hello and welcome to Bloomin’ Brilliant Books. Here is a little bit about me…
My name is Abbie and I’m a Yorkshire lass. I love dogs, cross stitch and books.
I LOVE to read!!! Reading and books have always been a huge part of my life and it’s a passion I get from my mum. My mum used to always read to me as a child, favourite books being The Chronicles of Narnia, The Secret Garden and Finn Family Moomintroll. I still have my childhood Mr Men and Paddington Bear books (they belong to Addie though as I got my Bs and Ds mixed up when writing my name in them!). It would be a huge treat to go with my mum to our local library and pick out books. I also have a thing for notebooks, and used to love spending time in WH Smiths!
I read every day and feel bereft if I do not have a new book to read once I have finished my current one. I adore my Kindle for this and now have a stack of to be read books on there. I love to discover new authors. I am pretty easy going when it comes to genres. As long as it is well written and either keeps me on the edge of my seat, speaks to me emotionally or makes me laugh, I am happy.
I decided to set up this blog to connect with other readers, authors and publishers, to have my reviews all in one accessible place and help me to remember the books I have read and loved (I have the memory span of a goldfish!).
A reviewer on Netgalley, I love to write about the books I have read, talk about them and recommend them to others as well as, hopefully, along the way help authors get the word spread about their work.
I hope you enjoy this blog and please get in touch via the contact page, I would love to hear from you.
