About

Hello and welcome to our family! We’ll be sharing all our bookish adventures on this blog – book reviews, literary travels and favourite bookshops.

I’m Mel, mum to 5-year-old Martha and wife to 40-something Al.  It’s 95% true to say that our lives are dominated by books. Al and I had our first date in Waterstones Covent Garden when we both worked in publishing, and we’ve been building our own library ever since, which now contains more than 2000 books.

Nowadays we are based on the edge of the beautiful Peak District where we spend our days searching for amazing reads, writing YA and children’s stories and going on hikes.  We hang out on Instagram so we’d love to see you over there.  Alternatively, drop us a line via our contact page.
