About Me



I’m Katie/Kate, I am 26 years old and I live in Birmingham, United Kingdom with my Fiancé and my two cats Dobby and Tilly.

As you may well be able to guess, I love reading. I struggle with my mental health significantly on a daily basis and find that reading helps me to get lost in another world and temporarily forget about my problems. I truly believe that reading has saved me and given me something positive to focus on at times when I feel like giving up.

In October 2018, I set up a “bookstagram” account which has introduced me to a whole new wonderful community. I currently have 1,700 followers and I have made so many fantastic friends. Feel free to join me on @theanxiousbookworm_. As part of this account I have set up #bookstagramsupportsmentalhealth Book Club which will be documented within this blog.

I also have a goodreads account, which I post on daily generally in relation to books I want to read, books I am currently reading and also reviews for books that I have read.

I am open to reading any kind of genre as I love discovering new authors. However, predominantly I tend to gravitate towards: fantasy, sci-fi, YA and thrillers.

My aim for this blog is to post my book reviews, weekly and monthly book updates, mental health weekly updates and tips as well as updates for my book club. Bonus content will be added along the way also.

If you would like to send me a book to review, please feel free to contact me on the link in my header. If you don’t want me to review a book but just want to contact me, feel free, I would love to hear from you!

Lots of love,

Kate x
