About Me

I'm Kirsty. I live on the North Norfolk coast. I went to UEA and did a History degree. I used to teach history to teenagers but now I work at Norfolk Children's Book Centre selling books and prepping books to send out to schools or put into school libraries.  

Outside of work I love to paddleboard, knit, embroider search ebay and charity shops for random vintage bargains, knit, go to yoga classes and pretend it's still the 90s. I also run even though I mostly hate it because it balances out all the time sitting reading on the sofa.

The Overflowing Library
I started this site in 2010 as a way for me to document my vast amounts of reading because I was struggling to keep track.I now review and promote books on here, on twitter and instagram (I'm overflowingklc on both) and goodreads.

Review Policy
Please note I cannot guarantee to review every book I receive. However do tend to promote almost everything received somewhere. This might be via a tweet, by rating it on goodreads or in a book haul photo on instagram. 
I am happy to consider books for review that fit in to the one of the following categories

Children's and Teen fiction:
I am happy to consider any genre of book for review that is aimed at a children's or YA audience from picture books through to YA. I do have a real soft spot for UKYA and particularly contemporary and historical fiction

Adult fiction
I am happy to consider titles for review that are either contemporary or historical fiction.
