Welcome to Books and Other Pursuits! 

I created this blog so I’d have a place to share my love of reading! This blog will be full (eventually) of book reviews, recommendations, and basically anything book/reading related.

About me:  

My long love for books started way back when I was a small child before I’d even learned to read. This love came from my nightly bedtime stories my mum would read to me, back then my favorite stories were the Famous Five, the Magic Far Away Tree and The Secret Seven.

As a teenager, I came across a book in my School Library called The Princess Diaries (by Meg Cabot) and this marked my discovery of Young Adult books and I have been hooked ever since.

As I gotten older my tastes have branched out. My favorite genres are (still) YA, but also New Adult, Sci-Fi, Paranormal, Fantasy and of course Romance so most of the reviews you will see on this blog will come from these genres.

If you want to get in touch you can email me at books_aop@icloud.com or by visiting the Contact Me page on this site.

  1. Hi 🙂

    My name is Shaun and I’m an author, just wondering if you consider reviewing books, in exchange for a free ebook copy?

    Here is a link to my book (Ewan Pendle and the White Wraith) on amazon, so you can have a look and decide if it may or may not be something you would be interested in reading – http://amzn.eu/6FjYTA3

    Thanks for taking the time to consider my enquiry, and I look forward to hearing from you soon.



      1. Hi Tracy, that’s great to hear! What address is it best to send to you a ePub or mobi. copy of my book?
