Hello and, let me just say, welcome to my blog! My name is Katie and I am a passionate book nerd, nature lover, traveller, amateur photographer and food lover.
I have always loved reading, as far back as I can remember. Seriously, my parents have home video footage of me sitting reading whilst my mother was trying to tame my long hair and, growing up, I could think of no better way to spend a Saturday morning than snuggled up in my bed with a great book. Come to think of it, that still sounds pretty amazing!
I am also an avid traveller; in the past few years I have lived in Switzerland (my home country), the UK (my other country by nationality and heritage), Russia, South Africa and, most recently, France. My favourite travel companion, other than my faithful rubber duck Arthur (see his Instagram @ArthurThe Duck) is a book. I will happily read most genres, a few of my current preferences are historical fiction, biography and fantasy. Some of my favourite authors are Philippa Gregory, Trudi Canavan, J.K. Rowling, Jean M. Auel and Khaled Hosseini, but I am, of course, always looking for my next great read, my next favourite author or book series.
I am far from being an expert, but I love to read and I would love to share this passion of mine with this amazing community of book lovers that I just know is out there. So, follow along, and see where my literary and physical travels take me next!
