Welcome to Hookable Books! But what is the blog about? Also, who am I? If you’d like to know more please get in touch.

Hookable Books: The Blog

Want to talk to your children about a difficult topic?

Also, looking for high quality teacher recommended books?

Not sure where to start?

Hookable Books is the blog for you!

A bit about me

English graduate, former primary teacher and English Lead.

Bath and London based. However, hoping to move to Bath full-time again in 2021. Please get in touch. Especially if you are based in Bath.

I love to read and write. Therefore, 2020 was the year I chose to be brave. To leave teaching and pursue different career opportunities. That is basically how Hookable Books came about.

Firstly it started off as a blog about all books. However, this quickly changed and the focus became picture books!

Also, I’m currently writing a children’s book (alongside working). Sadly not a picture book. But if you’d like to hear more, watch this space!

Now you’re here, I’d love your help

  • What would you like me to write about? For example, diverse books? Perhaps, books about resilience? Or something else? Above all else, I want to hear your thoughts.
  • On the other hand, are you an author? Or a publisher? Would you like me to read your picture book? Please see my book review policy.
  • Maybe you’d like to collaborate or be a guest blogger? Or guest blog for you? I recently completed a Digital Copywriting course with CIM.
  • Please subscribe and follow me on my social channels.

I can’t wait to hear from you!

With love and happy tidings for 2021.
