My Bookish Preferences
I love open endings, antiheroes & books that rip my heart to shreds! Can’t beat a good book cry right???
I abhor spoilers; I like to know very little about a book before I read it!!
If I have to choose between character or plot I choose character driven novels every time.
Greek mythology is my jam! Some of the first books I borrowed from my library as a little kid were based on Greek myths & the passion hasn’t left me all these years later.
Books about dogs are my absolute weakness; never met a dog I didn’t like.
Nancy Drew was my childhood hero… and TBH she still kinda is!!
And I believe wholeheartedly that no one is ever too old to read YA! I think I enjoy YA books even more now than when I was a teenager oops!!

About My Blog
Here at A Little Haze Book Blog I chat about all the different types of books I read.
I read books from all sorts of genres; adult fiction, YA fiction, literary fiction, contemporary, classics, fantasy, science fiction, memoirs, science non-fiction…
It’s probably easier to list the genres I do not read! Those would be horror and erotica.
I like to write reviews for every single book I read. I find it incredibly enjoyable to put all my thoughts about a book into a book review and then get to discuss it with other people who have read the same book… or the same author. Basically I am here to talk about books with absolutely everyone! To me, my blog is a happy extension of my favourite hobby.
I frequently read eARCs from NetGalley, Edelweiss+, and BookSprout but I mostly read books I’ve borrowed from my local library or from my own personal collection.
The Origin of My Blog’s Name
The name of my blog, A Little Haze, is inspired by my long term chronic illness.
I describe life with chronic pain and illness as being akin to living in a haze because due to pain, medication or the myriad of other side effects of life as a #spoonie, it means that my days tend to blur together and it can be hard to know which way is forward and which way is backwards… so it’s all a little bit hazy hence A Little Haze Book Blog.
