About meI'm a 28 year-old English lass, living in the beautiful Peak District with my family and our two cats, Millie and Domino. My mum and I left our second-hand bookshop, Book End, behind in early 2014 after four and a half years of working together. I have a thing for blueberry muffins and minced beef and mushroom stroganoff (not at the same time).

I have a book blog called 'Book Addicted Blonde' (previously 'Musings of a Bookshop Girl'), and am also on Twitter and Instagram. Because I can't seem to add it to my 'also on' platforms below, my handle for both is: blondebookgirl

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. :)
