Hey, I’m Lotte, and welcome to my book blog 🙂 I’m 23 years old, Dutch, an English lit student, reader, writer, watcher of films, cat lady of three cats, lover of tangerines, grower of vegetables, runner, and Christmas fanatic. Pronouns are she/her
When I first learned to read, I loved it, but obligatory group reading at school soon quenched my love for reading. It was only when I was about ten I started reading again, hesitantly, but when I started highschool (at age twelve, in the Netherlands) I fell in love with YA books and devoured everything I could get my hands on. I haven’t stopped since. I usually read YA, and have a special love for (high) fantasy, but honestly I’ve found that good books come in all genres, so I give everything a chance!
I study English Literature at the Open University (UK) with Creative Writing as well. I’m aiming to eventually do a master in Creative Writing. I’ve always loved writing and making up stories, but school/health always got in the way. When I had to quit my brick university due to health problems, and it also turned out I wasn’t fit for art school, I did a creative writing course and that made me realize how much I love writing. I’ve done NaNoWriMo twice since then (and won!) and have been working hard on short stories that I hope to get published some day! But honestly, writing in itself is so much fun I’d keep doing it even if it never got my anywhere (but, it would be nice). I hope to someday maybe post some stories on here, but right now it feels too early days for that.

I post on this blog three times a week. On Sunday there’s a book review, on Tuesday I do either a Top Ten Tuesday or Top Five Tuesday, and Thursday’s could be anything: an extra review, mini reviews, book tags, book banter, or book box reviews!
