I'm Marie, an avid reader and doctor from Manchester, UK.
I decided to start this blog after moving in with my boyfriend and having it dawn on me just how daunting my to-be-read pile actually was. Books in the living room, books in the spare bedroom, books in the airing cupboard - not to mention the boxes of books still stuck in my parents' garage with no home to go to. I wanted a way to track my reading and exchange views with other bookworms. There's nothing like a quick browse around the book blogging community to make you feel better about the relatively modest size of your own to-be-read list!
I like reading:
- crime fiction (I'm a particular sucker for Scandinavian authors)
- anything a bit Victorian/gothic
- dystopian classics
- quirky characters
- pop science books
