I’m Lynsey, a longstanding book worm, English teacher and Harry Potter fanatic.

My passion for books started in the 90s with Goosebumps, Animal Ark and The Babysitter’s Club and has since branched out into a rather eclectic hobby. Basically, I will read anything! Too many books and too little time.

Here you will find, book reviews, rambled thoughts, life changing quotes and lessons learned. Enjoy.


Read. Rest. Relax.

    Hi Lynsey, just found your blog for the first time and it’s BRILLIANT! Your reviews are insightful and your blog, aesthetically, is lovely. I work in PR for a range of children’s publishers – could I drop you a line about an MG book I’m working on right now that I think might interest you? Best, Georgia

    Hi Lynsey – great blog! I’m the author of scores of fiction and non-fiction books for children and adults, just taking my first steps into YA with my new novel, ‘Drift.’ It comes out on September 10th to mark World Suicide Prevention Day, which also happens to be 40 years almost to the day since my own sister’s death by suicide. I wonder if you might consider reviewing it? I’d have emailed you, for preference, but can’t for the life of me find your email address – apologies for that!
