About meI'm a 33 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. I was diagnosed with Asperger's Syndrome a couple of years ago. Things that make me happy include blackbirds singing, blue skies, trees, bright colours, smart sitcoms and leisurely meals with a good book. I am on Instagram @bookaddictedblonde.

Books in bold are my favourites so far!

About my libraryI have a bit of everything in my library - fiction, science, classics, biography, history, you name it! Most of the books on my shelves are unread, because I'm quite good at letting go of books I've finished with and tend to only keep my favourites. However, I still have an entire library corner in my bedroom, because I'm also quite good at collecting MORE books. I'm like a papery magpie and occasionally have to be literally dragged out of bookshops. My mum is convinced that one day my floor will collapse and kill us all in our sleep - but what a way to go... ;)
