Hey there, I'm Sarah, I'm 20 years old and from Somerset in England. Currently I live in Leeds as I am at university studying to become a nurse.
I love reading, writing, music and my friends mean the world to me. My favourite books include Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, His Dark Materials, Wuthering Heights, and a book I read recently called Mariana by Susanna Kearsley.
