About Me

Hi! I'm Lucy Powrie, a book blogger and YouTuber from the UK. I have a wild obsession with the Brontë sisters, love reading YA books, and have lots and lots of guinea pigs.

I'm the creator and host of #UKYAChat, a weekly Twitter chat hosted every Friday at 8pm UK Time, and am represented by Lauren Gardner at Bell Lomax Moreton.
