PLEASE NOTE as of Jan 2019 I will not be taking new review requests for the time being. Thanks

Hi, thanks for reading my blog, feel free to comment. If you’re wondering the bookworm was knitted by my sister and inspired me when trying to think of a name for my blog.

Just a bit about me:

My name is Jen and I’m from Wales.

You can find me on twitter: https://twitter.com/Jen_wales?lang=en-gbng=en-gb

I love reading and started reviewing on my blog because I love to share the books I’ve enjoyed and showcase amazing writers. I review books I’ve bought and I am a member of Netgalley, a site which allows you to pick books to read for free in exchange for an honest review.

I love the classics, Jane Eyre is my favourite. I like dark, gothic books but also enjoy lighter reads. Favourite authors:

  • Elizabeth Kostova (favourite book: The Historian)
  • Carlos Ruiz Zafon,
  • James Herbert.
  • Deborah Harkness.

My other passion is writing, I’ve always wanted to be a published writer. That’s one reason why I love to help other writers get their books noticed. I write fiction: short stories and I am currently working on finally finishing my first novel outside NaNoWriMo.

I try to do all this amongst my job in a shop which can be crazy, I work with a bunch of lovely people and dream of making writing my job.
