#Booklove: Stephanie Rothwell @sjroth21

Book Love (1)

Today it’s my great pleasure to welcome blogger Stephanie Rothwell to Jen Med’s to help spread the book love. Before we find out about Steph’s choices, lets find out a bit more about the person behind the blog.

About Steph


I have loved reading for as long as I can remember. My earliest memories are of reading The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark by Jill Tomlinson, Charlotte’s Web by E B White. I also remember My Naughty Little Sister series by Dorothy Edwards and the whole library of Roald Dahl children’s stories. From there I read many stories by C S Lewis, Penelope Lively and Alison Uttley. Today my reading tastes are varied, my genre of choice is fictional crime although at times I do enjoy a break and will read historical fiction mainly but also chick-lit and fantasy.

As well as my reading, I thoroughly enjoy walking and hiking and bird watching, with the occasional treasure trail or geocache challenge thrown in. I have recently developed an interest in photography with my main focus on historical or interesting buildings. I do also spend time researching our family history, I find genealogy a fascinating subject. Ian, my husband is also a keen reader and I rely on him for technical support in running my blog and also coaching and improving my photography skills.
