Hi there 🙂

Welcome to my blog (once “thebookshake”) or “room of my own”, that is, a place where I can spend some time concentrating on things that I like such as reviewing books while having a nice cup of tea or coffee.

I’m an Italian girl currently living in the romantic city of Padua, which Shakespeare defined as “nursery of arts”. I have a MA in Foreign Languages and Literatures (English and French) and I majored in American literature. I’ve always loved writing and so reading was just a natural consequence. I told myself: “If I want to write well I should first read what other people have written and the more I read the more I’ll learn”. So I decided to study languages which enabled me to explore foreign literatures and read books in their original language. My reviews are written in Italian, English and French, most of the time according to the language in which I read the book.

Another thing that I love is travelling. When I travel I always keep a diary and take photos with my camera. I lived for a while in France and UK but I feel my adventures are not over yet. Besides, books are also a means of travelling in space and time.
