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 Little M 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, running a digital marketing business, writing YA and children’s stories and going on hikes.  We post creative photographs on Instagram every week and love the bookish community over there.  You can read more about what Bookstagram means to me over at Frolic Media.  Our photos have also been featured in the Metro, Jayakarta News and HiFiPublic.
