about

Hello! My name is Eleanor. I’m a keen reader/writer who turned to blogging in the hope of filling the gaping, book-shaped void left in my life after finishing my MA in English Literature.  As I’ve mentioned elsewhere, I’m especially interested in Victorian literature and books about women’s lives, but I don’t really intend to restrict myself to any category in particular.

My favourite books are, in no particular order:
Wuthering Heights // Emily Bronte
The Women’s Room // Marilyn French
The Story of a Modern Woman // Ella Hepworth Dixon
Lady Audley’s Secret // Mary Elizabeth Braddon
The Handmaid’s Tale // Margaret Atwood
The Harry Potter series // J.K. Rowling

My shorter book reviews are categorised under ‘Impressions’, and my longer more formal pieces are ‘Expressions’.  I am ALWAYS reading and writing something and I intend to update as regularly as I can, so do come back when you get chance 🙂

Thank you for stopping by!
