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 click the follow button.

Thank you for stopping by – happy reading!
