I’m Verity, a journalist with a long commute which leaves me with a plenty of time to indulge in my massive book habit. I started this blog to try and make myself keep track of the state of my to-read pile backlog – after my mum told me she gets worried if she has more than 10 books waiting to be read – when I have over 50 paperbacks alone.
I’ve loved books and stories since my parents first started reading stories to me, and these days I get through a frightening number of books – last year I read 260 new books (and re-read a fair few as well).
I read lots of different things and go through phases of reading a lot of the same genre. My guilty pleasure is historical fiction – the sort you get from the States with scantily clad heroines on the front cover. They live a shamefaced existence on the top shelf of one of my spare room book cases.
My favourite authors include Dorothy L Sayers, Laurie Graham, Georgette Heyer, Jasper Fforde, Terry Pratchett, Elizabeth Peters and Elinor M Brent Dyer (I told you I read a lot of different genres).
Find me on Goodreads to get a blow-by-blow account of what I’m reading.
My twitter account is @WildeV where you’ll find out probably more than you wanted to know about my train company and I’m on Pinterest too (although not as much) if you really want to find out everything about me!
If you want to get in touch, Twitter is your best option.
