In a nutshell I’m Lizzy (spelt with a y) and I bloody love books. There’s no other way of putting it really. I’m a book worm, book hoarder, book reader, book lover, book blogger, book reviewer; any and all of those fit the bill. In the real world I’m a Digital Content Officer working within higher education and I live in Greenwich, London. You’ll often find me with my nose stuck in a book waiting for a bus wearing a brightly patterned tea dress with my hair a mess and boots on my feet no matter the weather. Historical fiction is my favourite genre if you’re wondering and I have secret adoration for anything pastel coloured. I speak fluent sarcasm and if you ever need me to do anything for you a packet of malteasers will often suffice.

    Hey, because i’m pretty fresh to this thing could you give me tips on like customising my blog, content, tags, really just anything that’ll help me get into the swing of things. I just suppose you know a lot. oh and thanks for liking my blog very much appreciated x

    • May 7, 2013 / 6:19 pm

      Thank you for liking my blog! I love yours too! I am also relatively new to word press, I’ve had it just over a week but I can give a general idea.

      I would suggest using a theme where you can customise the header such as FOREVER the theme I use. It means you can put whatever image you want to add to compliment your blog. Look around for themes that fit what you want to say!

      In terms of content I like a mix of reviews, images and quotes to mix it up and keep it interesting I guess, however I split them into categories so that they can all be viewed together. This you add on the dashboard. (where is says add category.)

      Also, I would suggest using tags because they are really helpful in allowing people to find your posts. If my posts are reviews I always put book review as a tag so that it can be easily found by people that want to read reviews. It could also be helpful to put the authors names so if someone is searching for that it can be found easily.

      Finally, I would say, if you love the way your blog looks, and you love what you’re posting go with it and let people see what you enjoy. I like pink so my blog is pink; I love books so my blog is all about books! Make it so people know exactly what you are about!

      Anything else just re-comment
      Hope it helps

    so nice to see a blog dedicated almost entirely to book reviews. As you saw from my own blog, I do some book reviews, but not nearly as well as you do them, or as many, my compliments…

    • February 6, 2014 / 12:27 am

      Thank you! It means so much that people like my blog! I can’t help but read all the time! I have two on the go at the moment and I just love to share my views with other people to learn about new books and find whether people liked them or not! Additionally keep up your awesome blog I really love reading it! πŸ™‚

  35. February 6, 2014 / 10:14 pm

    Hi Lizzy, thanks for liking my blog. I love books too, and as a Dyslexic facilitator have the pleasure of helping kids to get to read and learn to enjoy it as much as we do. I have written a book about it, called ‘the right brain for the right time’ (unlock the Dyslexic potential and turn from a frustrated reader to an inspiring leader). So thanks for your support, Barbara Hoi

    • February 6, 2014 / 10:51 pm

      I really love you blog and I think it is an incredibly inspirational blog that everyone could take something from! πŸ™‚ My boyfriend struggles with Dyslexia and when we can discuss a book it is magic but he really finds it difficult! I think you are doing an incredible job so keep up the good work! πŸ˜€ x

    Thanks for liking my story. I feel doubly honored now that I know the ‘like’ was by a book reviewer. I have a book for you… The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin… it’s my current read, and a good one for a ‘bookworm’.

      I really enjoyed it, and I have rabbits of myself who I absolutely adore! Although I can’t see them with guns but they are pretty naughty πŸ˜€ We recently got a new bunny who we bought off someone with no room and her name is BBQ; not sure it quite suits her, so we’re calling her Barbie! I have so many books to read at the moment but when I have a minute (or two) I will have a look! Thank you for commenting! πŸ™‚

    Thank you for the like on my post “Hung Out To Dry.” It’s nice to know someone out there is reading my posts. I too am an aspiring writer, but never seem to get beyond my daily journaling. My blog is a way to try and push myself to write more essays and perhaps finish a memoir project I began a year and a half ago. Ten chapters and over 100 pages in and I stopped. Maybe someday I’ll be lucky enough to finish it and luckier yet if you review it. Thanks again and I’m looking forward to going through your blog.

    • April 15, 2014 / 12:46 pm

      It would be such a privilege to read your writings and review it! No book is too new, small, old, long, developed, undeveloped I will read anything and if you ever need anything or someone to chat to don’t be afraid to give me a message! Best wishes

  67. April 15, 2014 / 10:34 am

    Thanks for popping by and liking my Beautiful Books post. I am wandering around your blog – impressive work πŸ™‚ I am enjoying your reviews and expect my list of books to read will expand exponentially!

    • April 15, 2014 / 12:44 pm

      Thank you so much for commenting and glad you liked the blog!

    Hey there! I’ve just nominated you for a Versatile Blogger Award, because I genuinely enjoy reading your posts.

    I totally understand that these awards are not for everyone, (and you may already have it), but should you choose to accept it, then here’s the link to your nomination:


    If not, no hard feelings, I still rate your blog!

    • April 18, 2014 / 1:04 pm

      wow thank you! I will take a look asap! πŸ™‚

  69. April 18, 2014 / 4:23 pm

    Hey there Lizzy, glad a came across your blog today. I’m an avid reader myself. Like you, I studied Philosophy at university. It’s an interesting subject, even though I’ve often found it frustrating and hard-going. How do you find reading Philosophy in comparison to reading other types of writing? Looking forward to reading your thoughts on books πŸ™‚

    • April 18, 2014 / 7:15 pm

      Hey πŸ™‚ thank you for commenting! Where did you study philosophy? It is really interesting but you’re right some philosophers such as Kant and Heidegger are ridiculously tough at times! I always find myself straying to fiction after a strenuous philosophical reading session, but I must admit it is brilliant for getting the mind thinking and working harder! What was your dissertation on? πŸ™‚

      • April 18, 2014 / 8:13 pm

        Kant can be a bit of a nightmare. I tried to steer clear of him as much as I could, but he kept popping up all over the place! πŸ™‚ I studied at Edinburgh, and then at Sheffield. My dissertation was on the modularity of the mind. It’s in the area of philosophy of psychology. Is there an area of philosophy that you particularly enjoy?

  70. April 21, 2014 / 1:03 pm

    Thx for liking my recent blog. Have you read either of my books? U have encouraged me!!

        Haha no problem πŸ˜‰ I look forward to seeing your answers!

      • May 12, 2015 / 9:04 am

        By the way, what was the winning answers to your giveaways? Just curious πŸ˜‰

    • May 13, 2015 / 11:01 am

      The winners were SHERLOCKIANBOOKLOVER with

      1. Doctor Watson.
      Many people are surprised I don’t say Holmes, but Sherlock would sit an analyse everything about you and me and probably make us feel really uncomfortable. That’s why I chose Watson- not only would I be able to question him about his adventures with Holmes, but I feel that he’s a gentleman, and having tea with a young lady would mean he would be courteous and chivalrous in his actions and responses. He’s also quite a big father figure in my eyes and would always be caring. I’m a dog person too, so if you were happy to talk to him, I’d go and entertain myself with his bulldog. He’s a doctor, so he’d keep a rather clean dinner table, I find, and would also be on hand if any injuries were to occur. So, after this long winded explanation, the fictional character I would take you to dinner with would be Doctor John H Watson, MD, formerly of the Fifth Northumberland Fusiliers.

      aaaand Emma @ https://herwanderingwords.wordpress.com/

      I would pick Memoirs of an Imaginary Friend by Matthew Green. It’s a lovely novel about the world of imaginary friends, which runs parallel to our human world. On a desert island, I would definitely need some imaginary friends to keep me company!

      All the answers were super brilliant! it was a toughie to pick πŸ™‚ xxxx

        • May 13, 2015 / 11:10 am

          I must admit allll the answers were really thought through and brilliant and me and a friend deliberated over it for a couple of days which is why it’s taken so long to let you know who the winners were!

          • May 13, 2015 / 11:18 am

            Haha that’s fair enough πŸ™‚

  99. April 28, 2015 / 7:13 pm

    Hello, I just wanted to say I love your header, it’s really cute! πŸ˜€ I’m a huge fan of pastels myself. Any particular color that you fancy more than the rest?

    • April 28, 2015 / 7:46 pm

      thank you! I had it made a little while ago, I love pink and recently I changed the theme of mylittlebookblog and added the image of the library behind πŸ™‚ oooooooo like the lightest blue I think, like duck egg but lighter! or baby pink, or coral or lilac! OH SO MANY TO CHOOSE FROM! πŸ™‚ you?

      • April 29, 2015 / 8:37 pm

        I really like the books behind it. πŸ™‚ Pink’s my favorite color too! Tho I’ve been being swayed to blues recently. And mint colors. Ohhhh coral is a very pretty color too! But you’re right, there are a lot to choose from.

      • April 29, 2015 / 8:37 pm

        Of course! πŸ˜€

    Hello! πŸ™‚

    We are from Club Bookie, a new website that aims to bring bookworms together through listing up and creating a haven that would feature compilations of anything and everything book related. From bloggers, to vloggers, to bookstagrams, to book clubs, communities, and events — you name it!

    We were just wondering if you might be interested to be a part of the book bloggers list. We would like to inform you ahead that the questionnaire might be a bit long. We really wanted to bring the connection of the readers and the bloggers a bit more closer, thus, the feature-like questions.

    If you’re interested to become a part of our mini project, we hope that you could fill out our form here: http://goo.gl/forms/H6kVjX8drC

    If you have friends who might also be interested to be a part of the list, please feel free to have them sign up!

    Looking forward to hearing from you soon. <3

    Club Bookie Team

    Hi. I can’t figure out if there’s a contact me form somewhere on here or if I’m just missing it but I guess commenting directly works just as well. I’m trying to put together something where various book bloggers talk about their bookish and bloggish hopes for this next year, and I was wondering if you’d like to be apart of it. I won’t actually be posting it until late November/early December, but I’m getting on it now ’cause I’d just keep putting it off and putting it off and putting it off until it’s too late.

I am interested to see how you go about your blog. I am new to this and I had a book review blog previously that nobody followed so I decided to try something different.

  116. June 2, 2016 / 11:09 pm

    Hello there! My name is Aya, and I am a fellow book lover/blogger. I was wondering if you’d be interested in participating in a small project that I am doing. I wanted to ask a bunch of bloggers (49, to be exact :p), to give me one of their favorite book quotes. I’m going to compile them all in one post and then post it on my blog on the 22nd of this month. It’d be fantastic if you would be a part of this. Just let me know by this Sunday, please, so that I have plenty of time to compile and/or ask someone else. Thank you!
    P.S. You are the 4th one to be asked!

  117. August 19, 2016 / 3:30 pm

    I just happened to come upon your blog and I thought it was really interesting that you live in Stoke-on-Trent! I recently came back from a trip to Chipping Campden (which I don’t think is that far) it was inexplicably gorgeous. How do you stand living in a place drowning in such beauty?
