Hello, I'm Callie and I'm a Bookaholic...
I've loved reading and making up stories for as long as I can remember, and I've set up this site to share the magical world of books with you.
There's nothing I like better than curling up with a good book; whether it's chillaxing in the sunshine on a hot sandy beach, or snuggled up with a hot chocolate in front of a roaring fire on a cold and blustery day. My favourite stories are where one seemingly small act of chance has devastating consequences for the character, making the reader think it could happen to anybody.
As a book-blogger I get to read lots of amazing books before they’re published, which means you get to know all about them and can grab yourself a copy as soon as they hit the bookshops. I also make sure I review lots of brilliant books that are already out there - just in case you fancy treating yourself right now! Take a peek into Callie's Book Bag and you'll be able to see some of the fantastic books coming up for review - or the Book Reviews page shows all the books I've already read and loved. I only review books I love, so if a book is listed on this site, you know it's something I would recommend.
But reading isn't my only passion, I love making up my own stories too...
'You are what you repeatedly do'
according to Aristotle!
And I believe anybody can do anything
if they learn their craft properly,
and work hard enough for long enough.
I'm currently reading English Literature with the Open University, and as well as classic literature, as part of my degree I've also completed modules in applied linguistics and creative writing. This has fuelled my passion for writing and now I'm reaching the end of my degree I'm working towards changing my career and becoming a writer myself. You can see the books I've read as part of my degree pathway on my 'Open Uni' page. As I grow and develop as a writer, I will also share my writing journey over on my 'Becoming a Writer' blog.
You can follow my blog by clicking on the link below (which takes you to my WordPress blog) and I'd love to see you over on Twitter, Instgram, or Facebook sometime (links at the top of any of the pages on this site).
So grab yourself a coffee and come and join me on my writing journey. Thanks for dropping by and I hope to see you here again soon.
