About meHi! I'm Nikki, I'm twenty-four, and I live in Wales. I've just completed my postgrad degree in literature, so who knows where my life is going now -- further into academia, I hope.
About my libraryI try to read widely, in terms of genre, place and time of origin, and in terms of authors; I skew to fantasy from the last decade, female authors, and stories of European origin, but I do try to look outside that. My degrees have focused on medieval stuff -- Old Icelandic, Anglo-Saxon, Middle English -- but I'm interested in contemporary work when it comes to my leisure time. Oh, and when I read for my course, I mostly read texts in translation, but where I've read the original or extracts of the original, I try and comment on the translation for those who don't have the language skills but want something close to the original.
