25 Bookish Facts About Me

So, here’s the thing. My name is Gerta, I am seventeen and from Estonia. A self-certified bibliophile.

I have been thinking about creating a blog for a while now. The idea of sharing my opinions on books  and characters seemed amazing and the people who do this always seem to have a really good time. So why not.

I wanted my first post to be somewhat informational and after watching Regan’s (PeruseProject) new video on Youtube, a lightbulb went on.

So here you go, 25 Bookish Facts About Me.

1. My favourite book from my childhood is “Peter Pan” , I will forever love it.
2. I love fairytales and fairytale retellings.
3. When I look at my bookcase it makes me feel proud.
4. “The Shadow of the Wind” is, in my opinion, a revolutionary book. SO GOOD!

8. Percy Jackson is my Harry Potter
9. The last one brings me here… I have not read the whole Harry Potter series, only the first three books and I didn’t love them.

      Thank you:)
      And as for the Harry Potter part, I like it… I just haven’t found a reason to be obsessed. But hey, a lot can change.
      And I would love a new best friend 🙂
