Loads of books picture

My love of reading was one of the reasons I set up the site, and underneath are my favourite literary quotes, as well as some of my own reviews, analysis on some of my favourite novels and writers and even the odd quiz. You’ll find my own creative writing here, and please feel free to offer your thoughts. And no, that isn’t my bookcase, just in case you were wondering!

    • I know I know. I’ve read them all. I still haven’t decided which quote. Maybe the one about standing up for your friends is as hard as your enemies. Maybe the opening line. Or about Snape? Any ideas?
