My favorite type of reading is holiday reading. I always download a new book onto my Kindle (apologies to those who hate them, but I find it so practical) and can’t wait to start reading, if it’s a good book it usually only lasts for the flight there. I took a class in my final year of university in which we studied crimes narratives across Europe. This class caught me hook, line and sinker. I loved it – we were basically being given the chance to read what I would have read in my spare time anyway.
My other literary passion is literature in translation. Works in translation give you the opportunity to discover a whole new world of reading, as well as different perspectives on our world.
I’m excited to be joining LQ as it’ll give me the chance to share the books I’ve loved with more people.
