I’m new to the book blogger world so I’ll just introduce myself.
My name is Fine [Fee-na] – it’s a German name and tricky to pronounce but it’s FINE – and I live (and love) in bonnie Scotland. Oh, the beautiful dog in the picture is my grandparents’ Leonberger Maly – I think of her as the canine version of me as we’re both always up to no good.
I handed in the final assignments for my English literature degree two days ago and I’m dying to get stuck into book blogging! I’ve got a small but well-loved bookstagram page as well as a Twitter account so I am no stranger to the book web and I’m excited to become part of the blogging community!
A bit about me… I turned 25 last week, I have four guinea pigs, a cockatiel, and a budgie, and I had carrots and peas on my homemade pizza last night. Hey, don’t knock it til you try it! It’s the best pizza topping.
I love to read YA and fantasy, with Leigh Bardugo, Cassandra Clare, and Laini Taylor on the top of my auto-buy list. All of my pets are named after book characters, some from Daughter of Smoke and Bone and the Shadowhunter Chronicles, but I dream of owning a floofy white guinea pig so I can name it Matthias and give it all the love. Some of my all-time favourite characters are Jem Carstairs (The Infernal Devices) and Nina Zenik (Six of Crows), so expect to hear a LOT about them (sorry in advance!).
When I’m not reading or working (in a bookshop and a supermarket), I listen to music almost non-stop. Bastille, Ed Sheeran, and Mumford and Sons are my jam. I also love going to the cinema, and my favourite film is Crimson Peak (and that’s only partly because of Tom Hiddleston). I like to get tattoos based on music, books, and films I enjoy, but I am a wimp so I spend most of the time at the tattoo studio pulling pained faces.
And I think that’s it about me! I’m having some vegan pie now, so I gotta go but it’s been an absolute pleasure to meet you!
