About Me

Hi, thanks for stopping by this page and reading my blog! I'm Cynthia. I'm a twenty-year-old studying at a university somewhere in England. I study Classics, which is awesome. I actually live in Hong Kong and I go back there all the time. I read YA and fantasy books mainly, with the occasionally literary fiction, though I'll probably focus on YA largely on this blog.

I largely read contemporary or fantasy/sci-fi YA. I'm absolutely passionate about diversity in books. I love books with great female MCs and LGBTQ protagonists. I like love stories and happy endings.

Since I largely talk about YA on this blog, I thought you might like to know some of the other books I like that aren't YA. Here are just a few of my all-time favourites:

  • The Discworld series by Terry Pratchett
  • Anything by Neil Gaiman really, but especially Neverwhere
  • The Mistborn series by Brandon Sanderson
  • The Secret History by Donna Tartt
  • The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst
  • The Persian Boy by Mary Renault

Please come say hi if there's anything else you want to know about me!

So what's with the jellyfish?

If you wanna hear about how this blog first started, all you have to do is read the beginning of my first review. So, long story short, just before I started this blog I had 33 hours of exams in 10 consecutive weekdays. They were super stressful! But the week before my exams started my boyfriend gave me these two adorable snuggly jellyfish to help me through my exams, and I decided that they should come with me on my book-blogging journey too. So here they are. Aren't they adorable? You can get yours from this wonderful shop on Etsy (which I have no affiliation with, I just happen to really really love my jellyfish).

Anyway, as I'm not the best at naming my cuddly toys, I have named one of them Mint and one of them Strawberry. It's not difficult to guess which is which.
