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. 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.
