About Us

Who are we?

Heaven, Hell and Purgatory is made up of two avid readers of YA (among other genres), although both are decidedly adults now. This site was founded in January 2010 by Vicki (under the previous name of Rhiana-Reads.blogspot.com) as a place to record and share the books she read. Lyndsey joined the site in January 2011 and we became Heaven, Hell and Purgatory Book reviews.

Lyndsey

LyndseyI’m a 24 year old English and Linguistics student at Nottingham Trent University in my first year. I have to read a lot of classics and poetry for my course so reading YA is my getaway. As there is such a wide variety in this genre, I always find that there is something that I fancy reading and it gives me the opportunity to read things that I wouldn’t have usually picked myself. With so many fantastic books being published now, it’s extremely hard deciding what to read next.

As well as my love for books, I am a massive movie fan. I am equally as proud of my DVD collection as I am of my books and I hope that I can continue to expand on both of these for a long time. Horror movies do take over my collection a little bit though because it’s quite hard finding a film that actually scares me.

I’m a huge reader, always have been thanks to the influence of my lovely Nana. These days I mostly enjoy reading Young Adult fiction, despite not being one myself anymore. I love that I can read through a variety of genre’s and still relate to the main character through my inner teen. I particularly enjoy historical and dystopian novels, although paranormal and contemp do it for me too. 
 
When I’m not reading or blogging about reading, I’m a busy mum to 2 and work part time in a shop that sells make up. It’s right next door to the bookstore so I’m never going to be rich (although I do have wicked book shelves and make up drawers). I like reality TV, soaps, twitter,  hot baths, beauty products, going to shows and concerts, Chinese food, Disney films and Johnny Depp. One day I’d love to write my own book…
