Hi! I’m JJ, I’m in my mid-twenties and I got ill as a young teen with severe ME/CFS. I’ve lived most of my life in east London and live with my parents who act as my carers. I’m also Autistic. I recently moved to Lanzarote and am trying to learn spanish. Other than what has already been mentioned, I’m a proud slytherin,, a massive sports fan and am always listening to music.
This blog is mainly about the biggest three aspects of my life: Reading, Crafting, and Writing. So here’s a little about each:
I’m an avid reader and have been my whole life. I was that kid who pretended to go to bed early then waited until my parents had gone to bed to turn my bedside lamp back on to read some more. My favourite genres are sci-fi and fantasy but I also read YA contemporary and thrillers. You can check out my Goodreads account to keep up with books I’m reading and books I want to read, and of course, add me as a friend.
I review all the books I read and, while some of them have been given to me in exchange for a review, all my opinions are honest and completely my own. Regardless of where the book came from this will always be the case.
I am a netgalley reviewer
and am happy to accept books from indie authors if they sound like something I would be interested in reading. I’m sorry but I’m not currently accepting unsolicited review requests at the moment.
Hmmm, Where to start? I’ve always been a creative child and my interests don’t stick to one thing. Currently though, I cross stitch, crochet, sew, and am making my first quilt… Okay so its sitting in a box half done. My chronic illness means I have had to adapt how I craft and can often only craft in very small doses.
Finally, though most importantly in my life, I love to write and I am always making up stories in my head. It’s a lifeline on the days I’m too unwell to do anything else. I have a file full of possible story ideas and one of the most difficult things is not being able to write all of them at once!
