Hello, I’m Alex and this is where I post reviews of books I read, with the occasional rambling about books in general.
I’m a twenty-something from Germany, and I’ve been reading all my life, thanks to my mum. I’ve just returned home from studying English Literature in Wales a few months ago. Since I like to read a lot, and usually have some sort of opinion I decided to start writing reviews and share them on this blog. I’m currently planning to post once a week, every Wednesday, but I’m also pretty active on Instagram.
I generally like fantasy and a wide spectrum of YA titles, and I’m trying to keep my reading as diverse as I can, with a focus on LGBTAQ* characters. However, since I tend to just read anything that sounds interesting it’s pretty likely that I’ll end up reading and posting about more non-LGBTAQ* titles.
When I don’t read I can either be found writing things, or watching and talking about hockey, football (the European kind) and rowing and other sports.
