Ramblings

Welcome!

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.

Some of my favourite authors are:

  • Trudi Canavan
  • Neil Gaiman
  • Margaret Atwood
  • Rick Riordan.

Some of my favourite books and book series are:

  • The Black Magician Trilogy by Trudi Canavan
  • Camp Half-Blood Chronicles by Rick Riordan
  • The Girl at Midnight by Melissa Grey
  • The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien

I hope you’ll like my blog or at least find it interesting enough to hang around. If you’re interested you can also find me on Goodreads, Instagram, Twitter and Tumblr, feel free to say hello!
