Prologue

Hello, world of blogs!

My name is Veera, often known online as Wil, with which I prefer to sign my posts. I’ve had a blog on blogspot for a couple of years – mostly writing for myself – but I realised how erratic I’ve been with both posting and the topics, and so decided I would create this blog right here. The idea is that I’ll post once or twice a month (I’m not sure yet of how much I’ll have to say…) and rave about my number one obsession.

Books.

Because of the topic of this blog, I feel it might be nice for the potential readers to know what kind of books I read. The bulk of what I read is fantasy. That’s what I mostly own. Aside from that, because I am an English Philology student with a focus on literature, I tend to read English classics, and now that I’ve started my minor in Comparative Literature I hope to read other classics as well. My guilty pleasure, when it comes to books, is Regency romance. I’m a fan of Jane Austen’s, and since the wonderful Miss Austen only wrote six novels, at times there arises the need to read more.

Related to my major, I also have some books on linguistics, language history, English history and culture…

I will end this post with short list of authors and books that I would count as favourites. I’ll be back at the end of the month for my first actual post!
