Hello, my lovely  bookworms! For those of you who have not yet met me, I am Allison a.k.a BookishWoo and welcome to my little part of the inter-web. My space for reviewing books and all things book related.


I have been an avid reader ever since I could pick up a book and discern a few written words among the pages.

I am a 40 something (for the time being at least) Mother of 2 living with my Partner who hails from Portugal.  I currently work in the finance sector.

After a lengthy period, when I was barely able to finish a book from one month (maybe we should make that plural) to the next, because I had a family and worked, I rediscovered my passion for books.

So now with the children fully grown, albeit one still refuses to fly from the nest, I can’t get enough of snuggling down and losing myself between the pages. Let’s face it, reading is pure escapism from the day to day grind.

The idea of starting a book review blog has stemmed from becoming part of a wonderful community on Instagram, known as “Bookstagram” by those of us privileged to be a part of it. This too has fuelled my passion for reading.

I aim to review books and any book related items to help you find your next read and help grow your passion for reading, all whilst making friends along the way.

Although I will pretty much read anything that passes through my hand, my focus is Fantasy, YA Fantasy, all things Paranormal, Thrillers and Mysteries.

I hope you enjoy your brief stay and please do reach out to me if you have any questions or would just like to have a chat.

You can contact me here and you can also find me on Goodreads, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Check out my links below and give me a follow. It will be great to meet you and rest assured, I definitely don’t bite!
