My name is Ellie, I'm 25 and I live in London.
I'm a reader, a writer, a runner, and an introvert. I smile with my whole face and I'm always unashamedly enthusiastic.
By day I work on a charity helpline and by night I devour books and drink copious amounts of peppermint tea.
I read whatever takes my fancy, whether that's fiction, non-fiction or poetry.
My favourite genres are probably literary fiction, historical fiction (Victorian, Edwardian, WW1, twenties), crime and thrillers.
I love discovering forgotten classics and will spend hours trawling through second hand bookshops on the lookout for exciting finds.
My current obsession is the work of Georges Simenon - he has been cropping up in my life for some time now and I can ignore him no longer.
My favourite non-fiction topics include the First World War, the suffrage movement, Virginia Woolf, and books (whether memoirs or history).
My favourite authors are Virginia Woolf and Wilkie Collins.
To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf, The Woman in White by Wilkie Collins, and The Return of the Soldier by Rebecca West are my favourite novels. Closely followed by The Great Gastby by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
I read a Russian classic every summer (this year's pick has yet to be decided).
