Hello and welcome to my blog

My name is Violet and I am a recent graduate in History. Alongside my degree I realised my love affair with writing. I was the Editorial Director of The Yorker Ltd, an independent student media company. During this experience I soon realised that writing (about almost anything!) was something I wanted to continue.

This blog will mainly feature book reviews, monthly round ups, reading lists and thoughts as I read throughout the months and years. My favourite genres to read are: contemporary fiction, literary fiction, thriller/suspense, historical fiction and dystopian but I also dabble in non fiction too.

Alongside this will be my attempt at creative writing, poetry and prose (sparingly mind) – whenever I feel the confidence to post things online.

I will also occasionally be sharing political opinions in response to current affairs in the form of comment articles. If that’s not for you then you don’t have to read. I also welcome opinions from people who do not agree with me – I find it very interesting and valuable to discuss.

On a side note – I have recently started writing for Backbench UK – a current affairs blog, so if you are interested in reading more you can catch me there too.

Finally – this blog is (hopefully) my seg-way into the freelance/writing/journalism world. I run this blog alongside having a full time job, so if you can help me out in any way that would be amazing.

Feedback and comments are always welcome – happy reading 🙂
