Hi,

I was always an avid reader as a child, going to the library, reading on the reading train and taking as many books home as possible.

My reading throughout my life has fluctuated with how busy I have been, so varied from books, to magazines, to both, to back again.  Genres changed across the years too.

With running a business from home ( well actually, just about to change careers), I found I couldn’t always go out, with the invention of the kindle. This meant that I could read and download books as and when.  I do still love paperbacks and hardbacks, but the kindle is great for ease and I have found so many new independent authors.

So, with teens, a house to run, cats, a husband and a business…I read to escape, imagine and enjoy another world. I don’t watch much television. 

What I do is read, what I would like the blog to do is give something back to the author’s, to shout about their book, to share what I have read with others.

My favourite Genre is Psychological thrillers, but I read a broad range of books, and mix them up as I go along.


I recently met Anthea Bell, who has translated so many books, including Asterix. What a whole new aspect of reading that taught  me, I am going to more and more book launches, and events. I was lucky enough to be able to attend Harrogate this year, I didn’t know two years ago such things existed. So as well as reading books to escape, I am escaping to book events.

This is what I want to share with you through the blog, my reading life…  I am happy to leave reviews on Goodreads, Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.com under the name of Bookstormer.

I have met so many fantastic people, and through this have just started working for Bloodhound Books Publishing Company, A dream come true…

Thanks Alex
