About Me


I'm Sam, this is my blog, its about books that I have read and reviewed. I also review a range of other items including beauty items, tea and subscription boxes. 

I am a primary school teacher and I am always interested in reading new books from authors and trying new products. If I get send any children's books, I take these into the classroom to share with the children. I then write the review including their opinions on the book. 

I have been reviewing and blogging for almost three years now, I post reviews, guest posts, cover reveals, author Q and A's, giveaways and also have guest reviewers publish on my blog. I have recently put together a reviewing page for my mum, over the years she has helped me review, this could be due to a book being sent to me was not to my taste or that she was really keen to read a particular book. I hope you enjoy reading her reviews. 

I read a whole range of book genres and love discovering new authors. Unfortunately however hard I have tried to get into Sci fi's, fantasy and horror, they are not for me.

If you would like to have your book reviewed, be included in an interview, promote a book cover or just about reviewing anything else then please contact me. (Please read my review policy before contacting me.)

When I am not reading in my spare time I like to travel, watch box sets and paint. I have a degree in Fine Art and only recently decided to get back into it. I have been spending a lot of time creating new pieces and also trying something new. Occasionally I will be posting about my work on my blog, however if you would like to see my work and perhaps purchase something for yourself or as a gift, please visit my etsy shop. JustArtStudio - Shop All work is original and handmade. There are no prints or copies unless stated, I aim to make my work affordable to allow everyone to enjoy art, so I have very competitive prices. If there is something you would like me to create for you, please send me an email and I will get back to you. 

Thanks so much for checking my blog out, I hope you enjoy it and find your next read.
