Hi, my name is Emily, and welcome to my blog! I’m a 20-year-old student, studying English Literature at the University of Edinburgh.
As an avid reader and aspiring writer, I decided to create a blog to share my passion for literature; a space to discuss what I adore, through recommendations and reviews. This will include books that are university related, and those that I read in my own time, so expect a mix of classic and contemporary, and LOTS of young adult fiction. I may include bits and pieces that I write from time to time.
When it comes to favourite books, it’s a stressful business and I refuse to choose, but I adore J.D Salinger’s Nine Stories (especially ‘Uncle Wiggily in Connecticut’), Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials trilogy, and Jennifer Niven’s All the Bright Places.
This is a book and lifestyle a blog – a place for book recommendations, but also a space to chat about other things that I love. This includes anything from my Hamilton/Lin-Manuel Miranda obsession, to chatting about my newest favourite TV series (though The Wire and Buffy the Vampire Slayer remain firmly sharing top spot). I might also some student related posts from time to time.
If any of this sounds like something you’d like, feel free to have a browse and follow me on Bloglovin.
Thank you for stopping by – happy reading!
