Hello everyone and welcome to this blog! I’m Linda, a student and avid reader who has always loved reading fantasy books and visiting libraries ever since I can remember. I mainly read young-adult books, historical fiction, mystery, classics, manga, retellings & mythology based books as well as magical realism.
Next to reading I also enjoy playing the piano, doodling, travelling, and binge-watching anime and tv shows.
My all-time favourite books (i.e. 5-star reads) include:
• The Alchemist — Paulo Coelho
• Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland — Lewis Carroll
• Caraval — Stephanie Garber
• Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
• Hunting Prince Dracula & Stalking Jack the Ripper — Kerri Maniscalco
• The Kite Runner — Khaled Hosseini
• The Night Circus — Erin Morgenstern
• Nineteen Eighty-Four — George Orwell
• Scarlet & Winter — Marissa Meyer
• Shadow of the Fox — Julie Kagawa
• Six of Crows — Leigh Bardugo
“The best books… are those that tell you what you know already.”— George Orwell
I joined Goodreads (that’s also where I am most active) in April 2017 and started my own book blog called flourishreader not long after that. Since then I have been posting reviews, recommendation & discussion posts, weekly memes and other formats as frequently as possible.
