I’m Clare Diston (aka gildius) and I live in Bristol with my boyfriend and housemates.
At university in Nottingham I got a BA in English Studies and an MA in Creative Writing, and I’m now working as a freelance proofreader, copy-editor and copy-writer.
I absolutely adore reading and writing fiction, and have attempted to do the ’50 books in year’ challenge a couple of times before, and failed. I started this blog in 2012, in an attempt to make myself finally reach the magical number 50, and I did it at last. So now there’s nothing for it but to do it all again!
As well as reviews of the books I read, I also blog about anything else that happens in my life to do with books and stories.
50 books in a year? Bring it on!

Like the photographs on my blog? Some of them (the really good ones, like the one above) were shot and edited by my very talented friend Jessica Augarde. You can check out more of her work on Facebook and her website.
