The Hels Project

Hello! I’m Helen. I’m 31 and I live in Surrey with my husband and our two children.

I have always loved reading, and I primarily share book reviews and book-related posts. I also write a range of lifestyle content, covering topics such as parenting and documenting the renovation of our home.

I have a degree in English Literature and a Masters in Journalism. I work as an editor for a property website, alongside running this blog and helping to run the successful online book club, Beth’s Book Club.

We moved to Surrey after living in a flat in South London for four years, and we’re slowly but surely turning our house (which was a bit of a state when we arrived) into a home that we love.

When I’m not looking after my two kids, who, let’s be honest, take up the majority of my time, you can usually find me reading, running or drinking tea. I’ve learnt how to balance a book on a buggy, hold a Kindle while feeding a baby (often holding a cup of tea at the same time) and if I’m running, I’m usually plugged into an audiobook, or listening to musicals, which I absolutely love. I’ve travelled a lot, and hope to be able to show my children as much of the world as I can.
