Greetings and Salutations

Hello out there!

This is my official welcome to my rather tentative blog. I discovered the world of book blogging, in particular YA blogs last year and have since been debating about starting a blog of my own. I've finally decided to take the plunge so here we are! My intentions for the blog are quite modest at the moment, I really just want to write about the books I read and what I like and dislike about them. I work as a bookseller so I come across a lot of books and my to be read stacks are more like mountains!

In terms of what I like reading my tastes are pretty varied. I love YA novels particularly those by Simone Elkeles, Lisa McMann, Elizabeth Scott, David Levithan, Maggie Stiefvater,Luisa Plaja and Malorie Blackman amongst others.
I also love reading contemporary fiction and the authors that get me hot under the collar are:John Irving, Alice Hoffman, Haruki Murakami, Chuck Palahniuk, Douglas Coupland, Jasper Fforde, Lindsey Kelk,Paul Auster, Val McDermid, Chelsea Cain, and Sophie Hannah.

I'm hoping what I can offer here are a varied selection of books that are worth a look. If you stop by please say hello!
