I'm happy to see you found your way to my little virtual book corner! I'm a 23-year-old media cultural studies student from Germany. I live in a city near beautiful Cologne with my family and our dog Amy. If you follow me on Twitter you will get to see lots of new photos of her.

When I'm not dog walking I love to cook. It has grown from something I thought I was okay at into something that I'm very passionate about. I catch myself getting bolder and I start to experiment with different and new ingredients and textures. My favourite cuisines are the Italian, Spanish and Indian. (Lots of food pictures on Twitter, too.)

Travelling and photography are my two other absolute favourite things, besides reading. I've done a lot of short trips, longer summer vacations in the boundaries of Europe and spent a semester abroad in Switzerland which was nothing short of amazing. Rome, Copenhagen, Paris, Prague and Vienna are some of the places I visited in the past years and I can't wait to return.
Ireland and New Zealand are on top of my list of destinations I'd like to travel to. I'm dreaming of wide green fields and wonders to walk and discover. Dublin, the Giant's Causeway and the Cliffs of Moher would have to be included in my route to discover the smaller sister of the green islands. 

Here are some of my favourite travel pictures and other favourites of mine.

You might wonder how I came to start my own website. Actually it was a coincidence that showed me the wonderful world of blogging. I've always wanted to share my love for books with others, find out about new book releases and make new friends all over the world. 
So I decided to start my very own book blog in August 2010. I've learned a lot since then, mostly taught myself to be better with writing and editing my texts and especially finding creative and attractive layout concepts. 
What I love about blogging is that every day offers the chance to meet someone new, a fellow book addict. One of my favourite things in the book world is meeting authors, too. I met Maggie Stiefvater, Cassandra Clare and Stephenie Meyer in Cologne and Frankfurt. They were awesome!

I remember the excitement of having a follower. The first reader of my blog. I was amazed when I hit fifty readers. How could I ever put the feeling of having numerous hundred readers into words? I'm still grateful for everyone who's reading my reviews and other posts on book news and features of all kind. You can't imagine how important your support, your comments, your tipps are for me. Thank you. And now go and grab a book! ;)
