Hello and welcome to my blog.

My name is Allison and I blog about books. I love reading all kinds of books, usually but not always fiction, and my favourite genres of novel include thrillers, classics and children’s fantasy. I work in a public library in Scotland and I review books on NetGalley and Goodreads.

I have a sister site, Mary Queen of Plots, where I write about Mary Stewart (1916-2014), the author of best-selling books for adults and children whose writing career spanned five decades. She was a pioneer of romantic suspense who also wrote poetry, fantasy for adults and children, and historical fiction. It is the beauty of her writing that makes me a huge fan of her work. I enjoy re-reading her books and special favourites include The Ivy Tree, The Little Broomstick and Madam, Will You Talk?

However, I do also enjoy books by other writers and that is the reason for this new blog. Let’s talk books!
