About Me

Hi, I'm Nicci, a mid-thirty-something-year-old bookworm and blogger from the UK!

I was born and raised in Scotland but after graduating from university, my husband and I moved to the south of England where we have lived ever since.
We have a pre-teen son, three cats, and a hamster named after the best Marvel character ever - Bucky Barnes.
(Just the hamster! The kid and cats are named other things...)

I'm a voracious reader of all things romance. Contemporary, fantasy, paranormal, and historical probably top my sub-genre lists but I'll read anything that has a trope that speaks to me when the mood strikes! 
Grumpy/sunshine pairings are my absolute favourite but it's a very close call to cinnamon roll heroes...  You've got to love the ooey-gooey cinnamon rolls!
(I do read other things too but... Romance rules!)

And speaking of cinnamon rolls... I love to bake. Sweet or savoury, if it falls into the "treat" category, I'm your gal!
I can totally cook normal edibles - like meals - too but sweet treats such as cookies, cakes, pies and the like are my favourite things to experiment with in the kitchen.

When I'm not reading, baking or binge-watching my favourite shows and movies, I'm probably off herding cats for money (I'm a project manager for a STEM organisation), or off exploring places. 

As a family of history buffs, we like to go romping around historical sites for funsies. When not doing that, we're probably arguing over a board game, playing crazy golf, bowling, or getting blown up by creepers in Minecraft
(To be fair, I'm the one who gets blown up as I'm clueless... I'm more of a Stardew Valley kind of lass!)

I've been blogging on and off for almost ten years. 
This blog was originally called Sunny Buzzy Books but has had a face-lift and re-branding... This came about as while I still plan on continuing to talk about books, I also want to branch out more into family adventures, music, movies, pets, kids and life! There may be recipes, updates on fitness goals, posts about mental well-being and how I'm doing on my recovery from severe depression.

PS - For those that have been around the book blogosphere since 2011/2012 my original blog was called The Book Lovers Codex but I deleted it in an earlier case of depression and burnout... It's a long story. I only mention it incase you happen to remember back that far - and remember my first blogging baby. 😊
