As you might have noticed, my name is Femke and I’m from the Netherlands. Currently 20 years old and celebrating my birthday on the 8th of August. From August 2015 to July 2016 I’ve lived in London, where I rediscovered my love for books and started a Bookstagram (@booksfemme). Currently I’m back in the Netherlands studying International Business Communication at university in a small city called Nijmegen. One day I hope to work in the movie industry or in the world of books.
My favourite genre to read is definitely (YA) Fantasy. I just can’t get enough of all these stories that take me to far-away, non-existent lands where magic exists. My goal for 2018, however, is to start reading (or at least try reading) different genres as well. To choose a favourite book is impossible. I always feel like my ultimate favourite still has to come along. But some of my current favourites include Six of Crows and the Shades of Magic-trilogy. Harry Potter also has a special place in my heart (and on my wrist, since I have a small lightning bold tattoo there).
Movies and tv shows are also a big thing for me. I watch so many shows that I have to keep a list on my phone because I otherwise forget what I’ve seen. Some of my favourites are Game of Thrones, Suits, Black Sails, everything Marvel, Peaky Blinders, The 100, The Originals and Nikita. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
As for movies, my favourite director is Christopher Nolan and I will watch anything that Tom Hardy stars in (he’s the best. legit.). My favourite movie is The Prestige.
So, should you need any recommendations: feel free to ask me or to recommend me stuff!
On this blog you’ll mostly find book-related posts, but I’ll also try to incorporate movies and books every now and then. Hope you enjoy!
