About meI'm a 29 year-old English lass, living in the beautiful Peak District with my family and our three cats, Millie, Domino and Leo. I used to run a second-hand bookshop with my mum, and had a book blog called Book Addicted Blonde. Things that make me happy include blackbirds singing, bright flowers, simple food and smart sitcoms. I'm @agoddamnpiazza on Instagram.

About my libraryI have a bit of everything in my library - fiction, science, classics, biography, history, you name it! I have a tendency to fall hopelessly in love with fictional characters so if there's a brooding (anti)hero in it, it's probably a keeper. I have FAR too many unread books on my shelves, but that never stops me buying more. I made a collection of 'Read but unowned' books, which will hopefully continue to get bigger as I try to donate books I won't reread to our local charity shops. I used to keep a vague wishlist on here too but stopped because it was too difficult to maintain; I now keep it on Amazon instead, so that I can add and delete things fast, no matter where I've acquired them. :)
