Hi, I am a 26 year old Master’s student studying with the Open University and living in the UK. When I’m not studying, I can usually be found with my nose in a book, mostly YA fantasy or just general fantasy. I mean, who doesn’t want to escape reality for a while?

I am autistic, struggle with my mental health, and am a pansexual panda living with my boyfriend of 5 (soon to be 6) years. This small corner of the internet is my own personal space, and will be centered around my likes and dislikes.

I initially intended this blog to be based on book reviews, but actually it’s going to be a little bit about books, my life, and everything in between. I am book mad after all, but there is also a lot of stuff going on that I occassionally need to post about, where my journal just won’t do.

You can follow me and unfollow me whenever you like, because at the end of the day I can write about raw emotions, and not everybody can cope with that, and I understand.
