Books | Reviews & Recommendations

Reading is not just a hobby, it's a way of life!

Welcome to the book section of Blog&Books!


I love to get lost in the pages of a good book, and here I want to share my thoughts, opinions and recommendations about the books I've been reading lately. 

Reading takes us away from reality and allows us to enter new worlds, explore different perspectives and gain new insights.


My honest reviews cover a variety of genres, including fiction, non-fiction, historical fiction, books by women and much more.

Whether you're a fellow bookworm searching for a recommendation or you're in a reading slump and need some inspiration, I hope my reviews will pique your curiosity and help you pick up a book you might not otherwise have considered.

If you want me to a review a book, get in touch!

The Best Books Of 2022

Four non-fiction books made it into my top reads for 2022 and, apart from Harry Potter, they are all historical fiction novels. These are books that had an impact on the way I see things in the world and I learned a lot from each and every one - my favourite thing!
