I don’t remember exactly when I started to enjoy reading. All I know is that it’s become an essential part of who I am today. As someone who always endeavors to learn new things, I am continuously fascinated with the wonderful worlds and adventures one can have through books. I am now in the process of accumulating books for my personal mini library, which I often post about on social media (IG: @kristinesbooklist).

In this little corner, I hope to share with you the books I have been reading and maybe let you in some my most personal thoughts and reflections.

“Keep reading. It’s one of the most marvelous adventures that anyone can have.”

Lloyd Alexander

“The greatest gift is a passion for reading.”

Elizabeth Hardwick

“Maybe this is why we read, and why in moments of darkness we return to books: to find words for what we already know.”

Alberto Manguel
