Welcome, book lover

Welcome to These Novel Thoughts! My name is Harriet Young and I am a writer, reader and general bibliophile with an obsessive love of words. Here, you will find many lovely things for fellow book lovers, including the option to purchase my debut novel, The Hellion, which has been published by Unbound. Additionally, you will find updates and exclusive information about the book.

I have also published some of my short stories here. This is a medium I adore and I hope you will enjoy my weird and wonderful yarns.

The voracious reader will stumble across my book reviews. Although not updated as much as I would like to, I hope that these will bring you some ideas and inspiration.
