My name’s Mara and I’m a 22-year-old English Literature and Musicology student from Aix-La-Chapelle. I’ve been an avid reader ever since my older sister introduced me to books and the English language with both J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Lois Lowry’s The Giver. Ever since she practically forced me down to read the later, I have loved different stories and characters probably more than real life itself.
This year, my beautiful sister, who always carried around so many books and was frankly one of the most brilliant people I knew (and I would say that even if I weren’t biased because she’s my blood and all) died abruptly. Considering she was the person I have always been closest to, I’ve decided to start this blog in her honor and hope it will be a place where I can express my love for all kinds of literature and share it with you guys. I also hope it will help me feel connected to her during my daily routine.
I read pretty much everything, so this blog will feature different genres and age categories. I can’t wait to get it properly running! 🙂
