Books glorious books!

‘Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury, and remedying it’ – JK Rowling.

From my early days of ‘Spot the Dog’ books* (who else loved them?) to studying some of the most wonderful classics during my education and indulging in a YA novel over a hot chocolate of an evening, I have found myself falling more and more in love with the written word.


My taste in novels is very broad and certainly seems to change depending on my mood. Recently I have also begun to open myself up to more non-fiction books. For a few years, however,  my love was stinted. Due to depression, my concentration was at an all-time low and I couldn’t manage more than a page of a book. Alas! A few months ago I completed my first novel in years and my love has not faltered since.

On Saturday at 10am (UK time) I will be packing myself up and moving into my university accommodation!  This has, of course, meant that the last few weeks have been spent choosing and purchasing the books that will accompany me on my journey.  So here they are in no particular order:

…. the ones pictured above and quite probably a few more!

Throughout the upcoming year I will keep you all informed of my reading journey – my likes,  my dislikes,  the tears spilt,  the laughs chortled. Please do recommend books to me and voice your opinion on what I am reading.
