My name is Abby Slater-Fairbrother, I am a life long book geek. The first book I ever fell into was Treasure Island and from then, I grew up wanting to be a female pirate. Hence the blog name! I am originally from Lancashire but now live at the Isle of Wight, with my husband and 3 crazy children. When I can’t be found down the beach, reading books & drinking rum, I can be found watching UFC with a beer!
Over the last 2 years I have read over 500 books. A wide variety of genres including crime, thriller, psychological, YA, historical, horror, non-fiction etc. I tend to float amongst the genre’s and will read anything if I like the sound of it. I am a member of Goodreads and netgalley, I review everything I read. All my reviews are 100% my own honest opinion, always accurate & relevant to the novel itself. I am also an admin of a Fb group which covers ww2 fiction novel, called ‘second world war club’.
