Welcome to my cosy corner of the internet. My name’s Hayley and I’m a UK lifestyle and book blogger.

Since you’re here, you probably want to know a little bit more about me and my blogging journey. Let’s start with the latter.

I started blogging back in early 2018. Since then I’ve found myself journeying down many different paths before I realised that what I’m really passionate talking about is books. (But I share lifestyle and home ed content too!)

I finally made the leap into book blogging in the summer of 2020 and since then I have had the privilege of reading and reviewing so many wonderful books and talking about them with readers from all over the world.

Here are some of my latest and most popular bookish posts:

About Me

I was born in the spring of ’90, which means I am now officially in my 30s. To some folks on the internet, this makes me a dinosaur. But honestly, I still feel youthful despite my rapidly greying hair…

I live on the Dorset coast of England with my husband, 3 year old son and guinea pigs. It’s a big change of pace from London, where I lived for the first 27 years of my life, but I like it a lot. (I’m also fond of the fresh coastal air. It’s great for my asthma.)

If you’re into personality types, I’m an INFP (aka “the Mediator”) and a 6w5 (aka “the Guardian”). Basically I’m a BIG introvert!

I’m an egalitarian which means that I strongly support equality for ALL. As a result, my biggest frustration in life is how hateful, intolerant and uncompassionate other people can be. This is why I often disappear from social media for days or weeks with no warning. (It’s self-care, I swear!)

Although I try to radiate positivity online, I’m not exempt from life’s problems. I suffer from endometriosis as well as anxiety (generalised and social), depression, asthma and joint inflammation. Some days are a real challenge. But it is what it is.

Here are some bookish facts about me that you might be interested in.

Welcome to Cosy Chapters!

I'm Hayley (she/her) and I'm more than a little bit bookish.

Cosy Chapters is where I share all things book-related plus the occasional post about the cosy lifestyle.

When I'm not reading, you'll find me spending time with my little family, rewatching sitcoms, planning the now somewhat elusive trip to Disneyland Paris and losing entire days playing ACNH.
