Welcome to These Novel Thoughts.

My name is Harriet Young, and I am a reader, writer and general bibliophile with an obsessive love of words. Here, you will find many lovely things for fellow book lovers, including the option to preorder my upcoming debut novel, The Hellion, which is being 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 too. Although not updated as much as I would like to, I hope that these will bring you some ideas and inspiration.
