If you live in a castle made of literary pages, believe in zombies, dragons, and alternate universes, and recognize that people in books are often better than real life, this is the place for you! I launched this blog for anyone who has ever thought the words “one more chapter,” so together we could discuss books from a variety of genres.

My love of books was kindled early with Dr. Seuss and progressed quickly to more complex stories. Now, I read anything from picture books to graphic novels to tomes, though you’ll only find reviews for Middle Grade, Young Adult, New Adult, and Adult on this blog. My favourite books and series include Harry Potter, The Loom Saga, The Hate U Give, The Lunar Chronicles, When Dimple Met Rishi, and anything by Khaled Hosseini.

Now, as a single mother of two, I work in the Children and Teens departments at the public library where I have constant access to books and those who enjoy them. I am quite literally living one page at a time!

I’m so happy to be able to share my love of books and reading with all of you as well! 😀 Feel free to have a look around my castle and don’t forget to click Follow!

  1. Hi. My name is Henry. I work for Near to the Knuckle, an imprint of Grit Fiction Ltd.

    I found your site while searching for reputable media outlets to feature our authors on. Please consider hosting critically acclaimed author Richard Godwin. A review of his novel “Android Love, Human Skin” would be a great feature for your followers: 

    Android Love, Human Skin

    Welcome to a world of four genders. A dystopian science fiction novel that explores the nature of gender and sexual conflict, in a future utopia engineered by the union. 

    Society has been revolutionised by gender control and the technologisation of man and woman. In a future where a biochemical weapon has removed the skins of the population, the rulers hunt for the beautiful ones, those men and women who still have skins. 

    The union is the new government, a faceless body of politicians who were behind the order to use the weapon that backfired on them, leaving them skinless. In the glass citadel, the new utopia, where the only surviving humans with skin are placed, they recreate the world of gender by offering humans four types of robot with which to have relationships. 

    All the humans are placed in relationships with machines, apart from Gerald, who appears to be a spy for the union and is filming the humans, and Elliott, a robot programmer. 

    The union watches it all, political voyeurs in a totalitarian state of enforced sexual ecstasies. 

    Humanity falls into four categories…
