to MyHappyReads! For me, reading is one of the best things you can do. There is nothing better than spending an afternoon curled up on the sofa lost in a good book. I am certainly not a book snob and I'm afraid the Classics are not really my cup of tea - but from Harry Potter to a Mills & Boon and I'm a happy bunny.
So, about me. I am a socially-awkward 40-something that has a love of Gin and a very anxious mind. Anxiety has always been a big thing for me and reading has always helped me deal with that, especially when my mind just doesn't seem to want to slow down. My mum would always call me a 'born worrier' and it was only after I had my son that I was officially, or medically, diagnosed. Reading became a way to control how I was thinking, to just switch off and concentrate on something else, I couldn't be without it now.
And the point of this blog? To share what I'm reading, my thoughts and reviews. I'd also love to hear from you - what books to do you recommend? What are you reading at the moment? Please get in touch, it would be great to hear from you.
