The Woolly Brew……
Such an amazing wee wool shop I found in Pittenweem The Woolly Brew

I visited there (twice) last week when we were down in Fife for a break, such a fab wee boutique and the lassies that work there are so helpful and lovely to chat with.
There was the most lovely selection of Debblie Bliss & Rico wools and many many more.  It was so easy to spend lots of time pouring over the different yarns and different colours…….too many to pick from – hence the 2 visits I had to make (much to the husband’s dismay!)

Well worth a visit if you’re in the Fife area!

* The Quiet Knitter is not open to review requests at present.  I am cutting back on blog tours in 2018, hoping to read more of what grabs my attention and generally taking a more relaxed approach to blogging. *

About Me

A book addiction would be a kind way to describe my relationship with books, I enjoy reading and have done from an early age.  A day I don’t get any reading done is a sad day. 

That said, I do have a toddler and two dogs, so they tend to take up some of my reading time but I like a challenge.  I’ve been known to knit whilst my Kindle is perched next to me, where there’s a will there’s a way!

I decided to start blogging about books and reading as well as random musings because I wanted to share my love of a good book with others.  I enjoy reading other blogs and reviews of books too, if you have a blog or review you want to share please get in touch!  

My favourite books to read are crime, thrillers, mystery and police procedurals, but I do like to change pace and read something completely different now and again, sometimes contemporary fiction provides a little light relief.

Please bear in mind that this blog is a work in progress, it should hopefully improve as time goes on and I work out what I’m trying to do, so patience is much appreciated.  This blog is a hobby, reading is a passion and not something I do full time (I am a mother and wife and these take priority).

Review Policy

I’m happy to read and review books from authors/ publishers.  I cannot guarantee I will accept a request to read a book, especially if it’s not in my preferred genre, please do not be offended if this is the case.

I accept books to review in the following formats:

  • Mobi
  • Kindle
  • Hardback
  • Paperback

I prefer to read my favoured genres:

  • Crime
  • Thriller
  • Police Procedural
  • Mystery
  • Suspense
  • Thriller
  • Contemporary Fiction

I will consider all requests but this does not necessarily mean that I will accept them all (I am human and blogging is a hobby, not a full time occupation), please do not take it personally if I cannot review your book, there just simply aren’t enough hours in the day to read all the books.  I try to keep on top of emails etc as best as I can, but with other commitments some things can slip below the radar so please bear in mind that I may not reply to every email I receive and if you do not receive a response to your email within 2 weeks then please do not be offended, I’ve probably replied in my head and not actually written something down.
Where I feel that I cannot write a review for a book, cannot finish a book, or simply do not enjoy the book,  I will contact the sender to advise of this and the reasons why.

My Celebrating Indie Publishing feature will be returning in 2018 so if you are an independent author/publisher with a book to feature or would like to take part in an author interview then please do get in touch.
