I'm a mum of six and grandmother of two gorgeous grandchildren. I love to read just about anything. I grew up reading Wilbur Smith and Alistair MacLean and novels centred around the first and second world wars.
I started reading children's Middle Grade and Young Adult as my children brought English texts home from school. I was introduced to Fantasy when I became intrigued by the books that my son was devouring and decided I should read them for myself ( just to check for appropriate content) and found myself hooked.
My daughter introduced me to Goodreads and a whole world of people just like me who loved to read and talk about books all day long (and sometimes well into the night).
My reading preferences now include Romance, Rural Romance, Suspense, Mystery, Crime, Fantasy, Historical Fiction, Contemporary Women's, Young Adult, fictional war stories and Middle Grade(ages 9 - 12).
About The Burgeoning Bookshelf:
Have you ever purchased a book and hated it? Wondered why you wasted your money on it? Wanted to buy a book for your mother, mother-in-law and worried that maybe the content wasn’t appropriate. The Burgeoning Bookshelf posts reviews on many different genres and includes content warnings and age appropriate levels.
Occasionally I may wander off on other tangents with a product review or my latest knitting project.
