Empire of Books

Hello. And welcome to Empire of Books.

Please, let me introduce myself. My name is Ryan. I'm 18 and I live in the UK. I have been an avid reader for as long as I can remember and am never happier than when curled up with a good book. I admire a lot of authors (wanting to be published myself, some day). My favourites include JK Rowling, Michelle Paver, Anthony Horowitz, Justin Somper and Zizou Corder.

The way things will work here are quite simple. I'll read a book. Think about said book. And review said book. Simple. I write reviews on my computer after reading a book, so decided to start a blog to share my thoughts on books that I find interesting, or just plain amazing and need to be shared with the world.

If you are a publisher, or an author, and would like me to review your book, then please do e-mail me at I love reading new authors.

My first review will be of Skins: The Novel, based on the popular E4/Channel 4 show.
