About Me


I'd like to introduce myself to you properly. My name is Alba and I am 25 years old. I was born in a small town near Barcelona but I have been living in Barcelona since I started uni 8 years ago so I consider it my home now.

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Translation and Interpreting from English and French to Spanish and Catalan (that is the language spoken in Catalonia, a region of Spain that no longer wants to be part of Spain, like Scotland, we will be voting next November to decide our future). I also have a Master's Degree in Sign Language, which is one of my passions, I love talking with my hands. 

I have also lived in Liverpool (for 4 great months, thanks to the ERASMUS program) and London (after finishing my degree I lived in London for a year, teaching Spanish in a couple of schools). Although I am Barcelona biggest fan, I think London is one of the best cities to live in, so I am considering moving back there for a while. 

Some of my passions are reading (I mean, obviously), baking, taking pictures, drawing and watching series. I have always loved reading, I was a big Potterhead. Actually I was spending the summer in Dublin when the last book came out and I queued for hours to get it at midnight. It was awesome! We were a group of 7 and we all made handmade costumes to go there. I was Hermione and we got a lot of cool staff with our books, like t-shirts and bookmarks, keyrings... One of the funniest night of my teen years. 

Anyway, I decided to start this blog because I started to follow some great blogs and I really loved what they were doing. So I thought it would be nice to share my thought and impressions about the books I am reading with anyone interested. Also I am discovering some great new books and authors and I am loving it!

  2. Hi Alba!
    Your degrees sound very interesting! Visited Barcelona a few years, but only briefly; really looking forward to going back one day!
    I'm a huge Potterhead too! That must be such a fun memory, waiting in line in those costumes (bit jealous, I have to say).
    Anyway, I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts!
    Happy reading!
