Hi, I am a 25 year old Master’s student studying with the Open University and living in Manchester, 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 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.

This blog may get dark and twisty, but like a tunnel, there is always light at the end. 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. If you do end up staying, let me know and I’ll put the kettle on.

I can be at various places online, but mostly:


I do have a private twitter and instagram, so if you’d like to follow me there, just comment somewhere or other (I’m still trying to work out wordpress so bear with me).

If there is anything you need to discuss, or want to talk further, then email: helloiambookmad@gmail.com
