About meI'm a 27 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 chocolate chip 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 Instagram handle is: blondebookgirl

A few of my favourite books:
The Picture of Dorian Gray - Oscar Wilde
The Secret History - Donna Tartt
Books, Baguettes and Bedbugs - Jeremy Mercer
The Perks of Being a Wallflower - Stephen Chbosky
Rebecca - Daphne du Maurier
Attachments - Rainbow Rowell
Wuthering Heights - Emily Bronte
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
Warm Bodies / The New Hunger - Isaac Marion
We Need to Talk About Kevin - Lionel Shriver
Biblioholism - Tom Raabe
Notes from a Big Country - Bill Bryson

THE LAST THING I...
Watched: I'm binge watching Frasier - I have a lifelong crush on Niles! :)
Ate: Cookies and a big mug of tea
Listened to: Toccata by Sky
Bought: A handful of books from The Works, and a Domino's pizza and cookies for tea

2015's reading:
1. French Milk - Lucy Knisley **
2. Running Like a Girl - Alexandra Heminsley
3. Aspergirls: Empowering Females with Asperger Syndrome - Rudy Simone **
4. Beautiful You - Chuck Palahniuk (SO BAD!)
5. Thirteen Reasons Why - Jay Asher
6. Picking Up the Pieces - Paul Britton **
7. Cross Stitch (Outlander 1) - Diana Gabaldon **

** = favourites of the year so far

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 Mind charity shop. 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. :)
