Hi, I’m Claire! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog.
I am based in Sudbury, Suffolk, UK, and I have been blogging since September 2019. My blog originally started out as a place to share about my days out, my Peloton bike and stationery I’d bought, but it’s now focused on books. I share book reviews, author interviews and book spotlights, and I aim to update this blog twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
I mostly read sci-fi, fantasy and horror, but I also enjoy more general fiction too. My favourite books tend to be ‘end of the world’ or apocalyptic fiction, YA fantasy and big epic sci-fi space operas – which is a bit of an eclectic mix! But I am really open to reading any fiction, of any genre, as I really love stories that focus on well developed characters and relationships.
When I’m not reading, I can usually be found playing pinball – I have 14 at home and organise pinball tournaments at a local pinball club, The Pinball Office in Sawbridgeworth.
Why Livejournal 2.0? I used to keep a Livejournal from 2001 until 2016, where I wrote about my private thoughts, books I’d read and gigs I’d been to. Since 2016, I’ve kept a paper journal. However, I missed keeping an online log of books I’ve read, bands I’ve seen and days out — I made a lot of friends through Livejournal, many of whom I still speak to regularly today. I decided to revive that with this blog.
