My name is Kelly and I am the founder of Love Books Group Blog.  I live on the outskirts of Edinburgh with my two cats Pawkey, and Poppet. My blog came to fruition in January 2017, I needed an outlet to talk about all things books. I thoroughly enjoy the world it has let me become a part of. Getting to meet new people, authors, readers and fellow bloggers have been marvellous. It is now an everyday part of my life and I would be lost without it. I have almost hit 91,000 views and that really fills my heart with so much love. I love social media and connecting with others. You can find me on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.  My favourite book is The Book Thief by Mark Zusak, it’s a very grounding book. When life gets overwhelmed with nonsense, reading a couple of chapters of it really silences the noise and you remember what is important.   

I encourage readers and authors to follow the blogs they enjoy.  I think it’s very important.  Plus it really helps if you share, like and comment.  The more people who read and enjoy my posts makes all the effort and time I put into each post worth it.

I am a big supporter of other bloggers, we are all a unique team and we only rise and grow by lifting others.

Don’t hesitate to use the contact form, if you think my blog is a good fit for you. All reviews are FREE

Hi everyone, my lovely new friend Kelly has asked me to be a guest blogger for her occasionally so I am just introducing myself. I am a 57 ye57-year-old has always loved reading from an early age, and growing up in a small house and sharing a bedroom with 2 other sisters, reading was my quiet time away from everyone else where I could lie on my bed and disappear into another world. Now that I have retired from Lloyds Bank on ill health grounds (I have MS) I have again found my bed, book and cup of tea to be my retreat and saviour. My reading genres have varied over the years, and I am currently enjoying psychological mystery thrillers, although at this time of year I love Christmas books and on holiday I tend to read what I call Fluffy books (light reading that you can doze off to on a sun lounger). I live in Bristol with my husband and have 2 grown up children who have also inherited my love of reading.

Kim is a Devon girl who now lives in and loves beautiful Edinburgh! She is a literature graduate who loves reading, going to the theatre, watching movies and cuddling her dog Loki. Another big passion of Kim’s is travel; in 2017 she spent just over half a year backpacking in South America, the USA and Cuba – an amazing experience and one she’s not convinced has cured her itchy feet or just made her want to see more of the world!

Kim doesn’t have a specific “favourite genre” when it comes to reading but has a big interest in feminist literature with some of her top reads including works by Jeanette Winterson, Toni Morrison, Angela Carter and Margaret Atwood. She whole-heartedly believes in the power of reading and how books can shape thought and change the world!

A perpetual student, accountant and fitness instructor Julie Anne Warnock joined the team at Love Books Group because she wasn’t quite busy enough already. She has studied historical literature, English, drama, accountancy, economics, planetary science, psychology, and criminology; she admits to reading just about anything put in front of her. She lives in the Scottish Borders with Eliza, Martha and Beryl (the sheep) her nearest neighbours.

  2. We would like to say how very supportive Kelly has been for us. We are new authors as RJ Bailey – although Robert Ryan (one half) is an established writer of mainly historical fiction – this is a new project for us to write a thriller together. Kelly has been there with us from virtually the beginning and has really helped to expose us to a different and wider audience.
    Her twitter feeds, facebook and blogs are many and varied and full of enthusiasm! Its great for us as writers and for us as readers…Thank you
