Hello everyone and welcome to my bookish hideout, a place where each book lover can find a book one would like to read. I’m Alina, a visually impaired girl from Romania, who became fascinated by Greek Myths, Bothers Grimm’s fairy tales and various Romanian poems since early childhood. As time went by, my passion for literature began to grow and it followed me throughout school, university and beyond like an imaginary friend who made me live a thousand lives in one only by opening a book and rejoicing at the experience it offered. Maybe some of you know me from eLitere.ro, my friend Elena’s website, where I have written various types of articles for three years; but now I have a cosy place of my own on the Internet that reflects my personality, creativity and of course my opinions on the books I read, whether they are old or new.
On this blog you will find English and Romanian book reviews for classics, thriller, romance, historical fiction, children’s literature, nonfiction etc., but there will also be books belonging to genres I don’t like as much as the ones mentioned above; those genres are horror, science fiction, western, short stories, biographies and memoirs. How do I choose the next book I’m going to read? Most of all it depends on the mood I’m in. If you like book tags, I’m going to post my answers for some of them that appeal to my reading tastes and once in a while, I’m planning to interview authors I like or other book bloggers about their writing process or their favourite books.
If you want to connect with me or recommend a book, you can find the social media buttons bellow, or send me a message directly on this blog. Enjoy your bookish journey and Happy Reading!
