Since early infancy, I’ve loved stories. Since the immortal day that I first sounded out the word “fog” on the BBC weather forecast, I never looked back. I read fast and I remember everything I read.
I am the girl who frequently risks missing her train stop because I’m caught in a book. I am the girl who feels nervous to leave the house without a book in her handbag and then another one on standby in case I finish the first one. I am Girl with her Head in a Book.
Girl with her Head in a Book began due to serious talking-about-books withdrawal symptoms after graduating. Recognising the glazed looks on the faces of my nearest and dearest, I decided to take to the Internet and share my musings there instead and so here we are. All reviews, discussions and lists are written by me unless otherwise indicated. The menu tabs should allow for smooth navigation of the site but let me know if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

When using images from outside the site, I aim to give credit below. If no credit is given, it usually because either the image is mine or is out of copyright.

I am an Affiliate with Foyles, Waterstone’s, the Book Depository and Amazon. This means that if you use one of the links at the end of a review post to buy a book, I receive a very small percentage commission.
I live in Oxfordshire, I have experience in copy-editing, proof-reading, writing and research. I studied English and French at the University of St Andrews – the website has tracked the past half decade or so of my life as well as charting my on-going bibliophilia. Books are what I like best, but I also enjoy knitting, writing, swimming, feminism, Granny Smith apples, postcards, handbags, dresses that have pockets and daffodils.
