where our team of writers love to talk all things books, sharing reviews, features, lists, interviews and more.

Getting lost in a book is escapism at it's finest and it's what everyone who contributes here thrives on.

Anjali is not currently accepting review requests.

Kelly is a soon to be graduate, with a degree in Classical Studies and English. She has a long term belief in the magic of words and loves nothing more than discovering new stories.
