ABOUT US

True book pythons...

Lucy

 

I've always been a complete book-obsessive. Even as a tiny tot, my mother used to take me round the local car-boot sales to find books that cost just 20p - those were the days!

These days, I'm a published author (you can learn more about my books here) and still as much of a compulsive reader as I ever was. I like to joke that I bypassed being a book-worm, and became a fully fledged book-python instead! I hope you enjoy my reviews, and please feel free to get in touch if you want to discuss anything reading-related.

Books are my favourite thing in life, besides my family and watching Arsenal play (come on The Gunners). My son often reads my books too, which is great because he shows me a different perspective, and he's growing up to be every bit as obsessed with reading as I am! 

 

Anything imaginative and a bit 'different' floats my boat, though I'll never say never to any book, especially if it's well-written and grips me from the start. 

Where do the books come from?

We often review books via Netgalley - these books are ARCs (advance reader copies) that have yet to be released. We also review books that we've recommended to one another, books we've discovered at charity shops... anything goes, really!

Books are a huge part of my life and always have been. My home is full of them and I work in a library so I am surrounded by them 24/7. I love to recommend books and if it's not to library users, it's to family and friends who get the recommendations regardless of whether they want them or not! My other hobbies are my two cats and three boys who are somewhat different in their reading habits. My favourite pastime is looking in bookshops. I have a serious book habit.

If you'd like us to review your book, get in touch by contacting Lucy on her official business email (ooh-er!) - lucy@bankswriting.co.uk, or Nick on his nice, casual address - nickhedges@hotmail.com. We're normally happy to review most things, as long as it's not offensive - please note, all our reviews are 100% genuine, so we can't guarantee a positive one (though we're usually quite kind!). 

ADDITIONAL NOTE - Due to being so swamped with review requests, we're now unable to answer each one, sorry about that! Unfortunately, we just don't have enough hours in the day to reply to them all. However, if we're available to review, we'll be in touch promptly, so do keep asking us!
