About the blog and me

Not Enough Bookshelves was born in 2007, when I discovered the world of blogging and thought it looked fun. Soon after I discovered Young Adult fiction ~ thank you Stephanie Meyer ~ and fell in love.

The reviews you'll find here are mainly positive, because I want to share and talk about books I LOVE with you guys! I review about one out of every four books I read.

I live in the UK with my husband (referred to in this blog as ~ my husband. He vetoed a blog name - boo!) and my son, previously referred to as The Baby, but rechristened the Almost American (AA) on his birthday (he turned two and is therefore too young to be able to veto his blog name)

You can find my favourite books under the Beloved BookShelf page. There are some fabulous guest posts under the Interviews and Guest posts page, from my annual Couple Christmas Countdown. ~ check them out.

And if you want to know a bit more about me here are some things, besides my family, friends, writing and books that I love ~ revealing no?
