About meI have been a bookworm since I have memory.
My life wouldn't have sense without a book on my bedside table!
So, I work, work, work and I look forward to being on my sofa every night to enjoy a couple of hours reading.
About my libraryIf you spend a bit of your time searching through my list, you'll see that I love classics. I love the drama, the repressed feelings hidden behind all those correct and formal long sentences and the atmosphere of another times. I love heroines and happy endings (even though some of them carry really depressing messages). Anyway, they comfort me, I know I won't be disappointed when I pick one.
Then, you'll find some "experiments", some went right, others went wrong, but somehow, each of them contributed to my daily life, making it easier, funnier and giving me something different each time.
And then, I have my gems, books I didn't expect to enjoy and that really surprised me.
They are all there...hope you find something you may like!
