About

About Me:

Hi! My name is Laura and this is my blog!

My love for reading began when I was much younger when I delved into the worlds of Jacqueline Wilson and Roald Dahl, who showed me that there is more to life than reality. Nowadays, my bookshelves consist of a wide variety of books, from classics to young adult, from fantasy to romance. In all honesty, there’s a little bit of everything!

Besides from reading, I also passionate about music (The Cure, The Smiths, Joy Division, Frank Turner and many more). I enjoy spending time collecting records, CDs and going to see live music.

 

About the Blog:

I started NoMoreThanBooks in July 2014 in the hope that it could be an outlet for me to express my love for literature. The blog’s primary focus is on Young Adult and New Adult books, however now and again there may be discussion on books from other genres.

  1. Hi Laura,

    Jacqueline Wilson was a massive influence on my love of reading as well! I have so much nostalgia for those books, my favourite was always Lola Rose. 🙂 So glad to have found a fellow fan. I love that your shelves have such a variety of genres, mine are like that too. I tend to find I get a bit twitchy and restless if I stick with one genre too long, so I like to bounce back and forth!

    Happy blogging. 🙂

  2. I just found your blog via Goodreads and it seems pretty great. I probably would’ve subscribed anyway but then I saw that you like Joy Division and collect records, which just sent me into fits of happiness. I just got into Joy Division recently and while I haven’t listened to any of their albums yet (I was planning on buying Unknown Pleasures for Christmas but I couldn’t find a copy, somehow). Speaking about Joy Division, I found out a couple of weeks ago that my Applied Maths teacher got to see them live in 1978/9. He said it was one of the strangest experiences of his life (at one point Ian Curtis hid behind the drumkit and played the rest of the show from there). I just got into record collecting (I have 16 I think) and I love it so far. I’m only 16 so I’m limited financially but I really enjoy browsing in record stores (I live near Dublin and there are a bunch of really good ones there). I got a good few records for Christmas and I did a blog post about that if you’re interested (http://leaf-on-the-breeze.blogspot.ie/2014/12/christmas-presents-vinyl.html).

    • Hi! Thank you for your lovely message! 🙂
      Unknown Pleasures is one of my favourite albums ever – I hope you find it somewhere!
      Unfortunately records can be pretty expensive but it’s great to see your collection grow over time. Have you been to Record Store Day? I’ve been for the past two years and it’s such a great atmosphere, you have to queue early but it’s worth it!

      • I only got into vinyl in October so I unfortunately missed last year’s Record Store Day, but I’m really looking forward to the one this year. Thanks for following me on Bloglovin’! I don’t know if you have enough records to do this but when I have a good few albums (50 I think) I’m going to reorganise my collection in chronological order, so then if I’ve bought well I’ll be able to track the evolution of music (admittedly mainly rock music) in my collection. I saw this on a comment on YouTube somewhere and I thought it was a really cool idea.

      • You should definitley go this year 🙂 Oooh that’s such a cool idea! I personally organise them by artist, but that’s a way I’ve never thought of before!
