About Me

Well, hello there! 

I'm Laura Holdsworth, the girl behind Little Northern Soul. 

I've always loved reading and had my nose stuck in a book. It started with Mr Men and The Tiger Who Came to Tea, then came the Famous Five, followed by Jacqueline Wilson and Meg Cabot, and then as I got older, Harry Potter. Nowadays I tend to read 'Chick Lit' books, with the occasional crime or thriller chucked in. Some of my favourite authors are Jill Mansell, Lucy Diamond, Jenny Colgan, Lucy Robinson, Miranda Dickinson and Marian Keyes. 

I've started this blog as a way to keep track of all I read, and share my thoughts on some of the books I dive into. Here you'll find reviews, cover reveals, author Q&A's and other more lifestyle based posts, such as days out or recipes, too.

I love reading, box-sets, meals out, desserts, tea and spending time with my other half, family and friends. I'm not exactly a wild one - give me a night in front of the TV, armed with a good cuppa, slice of cake and surrounded by my friends & family any day. 

I hope you enjoy the blog. If you want to contact me you can find me on Twitter @lauraholds28 or if you're interested in working with me, you can email laura-holdsworth@hotmail.co.uk - please see below for my reviews policy. 

Happy reading! 

I am open to receiving review requests on the email above, but please be aware that due to balancing the running of the blog with a full-tine job I cannot accept every review request received. 

I read modern women's fiction (chick-lit or romance) and crime/mystery novels. Please don't send requests for any other genre (such as horror, historical or science fiction). 

I am happy to receive print or e-book copies, and will also post my review to Amazon. I always post fair and honest reviews.
