Rather Too Fond Of Books

Hi, I'm Hayley,


I've been reading books for as long as I can remember and have recently re-discovered my book blog (Rather Too Fond of Books), which has made me excited to have a place to share what I'm reading, to review some books and to share my bookish memories. I have combined a newer blog of mine with this one and this is where I'll always post.


I am happy to consider any books to review. I post all of my reviews on here and on my book likes page, then I will be promoting the posts on Twitter and Facebook.

100RPM - One Hundred Stories Inspired By Music - Caroline Smailes,  Nik Kershaw,  Rowan Coleman,  Nik Perring, ,  Cally Taylor,  Sara Crowley,  Jessica Patient,  Theresa Milstein,  Máire Carr,  Angi Holden,  Matthew Borgard,  Stephen Shieber,  Nasim Marie Jafry,  Sylvia Petter,  Angela Readman,  Ray Robinson,  Katie Gun I bought this book because an author whose novels I love compiled it and it’s raising money for a great charity. If I’m honest I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy it as I’m not really a huge fan of short stories but this book may just have converted me because it is simply fabulous. The stories are all brilliant and even though they are all under one hundred words they have such power. I actually cried over two of them and nodded my head in recognition of the emotion in others. There is something for everyone in this compilation. I love how the stories are all inspired by songs and I now have many of the songs swirling around my head.

This book is one I will definitely read more than once and I’ll be recommending it to everyone I know. Go buy it; you won’t regret it!
