Who Am I?

Hello and welcome to Brontë Babe Books. I’m Nicola, a blogger, writer, and Brontë devotee also known as the Brontë Babe. In 2017 I set up Brontë Babe Blog to introduce readers to the juvenilia of the Brontë siblings. An avid reader, I also reviewed several other non-Brontë books on my blog. Now the time has come to move them across to their own website, Brontë Babe Books.

If you like what I do, please consider following/supporting my blog or via the links below:
