This is not a blog about cutting books into pieces. This is a blog about reading books, hairdressing and living in London – three things that define a big part of who I am.
I used to be a full-time hairdresser but I always loved books and four years ago I decided to follow my dream and study English Literature. I studied at Birkbeck College, University of London, and it was a wonderful adventure which sadly and inevitably had to come to an end (I graduated in June 2014). I was very fortunate to enter my dream career of publishing while still studying and that is when I stopped hairdressing full-time. But I do it in spare moments and enjoy it even more than before.
I want this blog to be focused mainly on book reviewing and bookish things that happen in London. Not having lectures and seminars to attend anymore left me with a void – I miss being around people who love books and reading as much as I do. I hope this blog will help me to fill that gap. From time to time, however, I may let myself post some of my random jottings from non-bookish spheres of my life (hair, zumba, highs and lows of living in London). But that’s ok as long as I am writing … regularly!
Writing a blog isn’t something that comes to me naturally, because I’m shy, so please be kind, I have a lot to learn!
