About me

I love reading and recently re-discovered my passion for books after changing careers. Now that I have more time, I try and put aside some time every day to escape into fiction. I try to read a variety of books and am always being lent novels by family members, so this blog is for those of you who just want to discover something new to read. I do not get paid to write this blog, but simply write about my readings for my own pleasure and reflection (as I find I can absorb so many books!), and to recommend books to other people. Whilst I might not read the latest releases, I think books are timeless and deserve being recognised for the works of fiction that they are. Nothing can beat being curled up on the sofa with a cup of tea and a good book, and this blog is my record of what I have read. I also post my reviews on Amazon and Goodreads.

As I review the books, I will give a star rating as below:


Dreary – it’s a hard slog

Just about OK

A jolly good read

Excellent! A must-read

I hope you enjoy it and welcome any feedback or recommendations. The reviews you see on my blog reflect my own opinion and I try to explain my thoughts and feelings as clearly as possible.

If you have a book that you would like me to review, please contact me at sarahemmett10@hotmail.com. If your book is part of a series, then I would appreciate being able to read its predecessors so I can give an accurate review. I try to publish my reviews within a month of receiving a book; if it is an ARC I always aims to give this more priority.

Happy reading,
