I’m afraid there’s nothing too original behind my motivation for starting this blog in 2013: I am an avid reader, love books and wanted to keep a record of everything I read. I bet that sounds like you too!
I live in the UK by way of Australia and Orange Pekoe was my preferred flavour of tea in Australia. It is like Lady Grey, only richer. Those with an interest in psychology probably have oodles to say about the fact that I am a hopeless coffee addict but have named my blog after a tea.
I have always loved Australian fiction and have developed an even greater fondness for it since living abroad. Sadly, not all Australian novels are published internationally so I am renowned for flying back into Heathrow with a suitcase full of books.
I am honest in all my reviews and no longer award star ratings. I only read books I think I will enjoy which is why you won’t find any negative reviews.
A continued big thank you to The Graphics Fairy for some wonderful vintage steampunk images.
