I'm BrizzleLass, I am a bookworm and my book blog BrizzleLass Books is where I share my love of books by writing reviews, sharing guest posts from authors, interviews and even the odd bookish giveaway! I have Bipolar and have been dealing with mental illness in one form or another since childhood, I was first diagnosed with depression at nine. It's not easy speaking out about my experiences, some of them are extremely painful, but if I can help even one person then I have succeeded in sharing my story. My personal blog is where I talk about my mental health among other things that interest me.

  1. I really love this series on your blog. Love Story is one of my favourite books so it’s interesting to see that Lynda wishes she wrote it. I’ve not re-read it in a few years now but I could still recite my favourite quotes from it so I can totally see why writers wish they’d written it.

    1. Oh thank you! If you would like to take part let me know and I will send you the questions!
      As for Love Story, I read it so many years ago now and I don’t automatically think of it as a favourite but like you can think of quotes from it so it must be more of a favourite than I realise!


      1. I’d love to take part, it’s such a great series. 🙂
        I read Love Story so many times when I was younger that it’s imprinted on my memory now. It’s funny how a book can stick with you even when you don’t automatically think of it as a favourite.
