About Isa

Follow Isa on Goodreads Follow Isa on Tumblr Follow Isa on TwitterIsa in front of a mirrorWhale whale whale. Look who cannot be serious. It’s me! Mario! No wait. It’s me! Isa! I’m 24 and I live in Germany. Just like Ren books are my passion, or rather stories are. When I was a wee young girl, I mostly read whichever books were given me, among them a wagonload of Enid Blyton, Else Ury and the stash of Donald Duck comics my Dad had collected. I got the first Harry Potter book on my 11th birthday and it all just went downhill (or uphill?) from there.

These days I read just about anything under the sun if it looks pretty (I’m shallow, alright), but I do prefer fantasy, YA and anything that includes boarding schools. I blame Germany’s obsession with Enid Blyton and ghostwriting books in her name for the last one. I also like some steampunk and lesbians. Just give me regency lesbians, dammit!

Again just like Ren, I love tea. I’m German, so I’ve grown up with a billion different fruit teas (so what if I have seven different types of apple tea in my cupboard, you need to stop judging me, Ren!) but you can always lure me in with a nice cup of Lady Grey. When I’m not reading, I tend to be procrastinating on the important things of life by sleeping, eating or watching tv shows. It’s always a good time when there’s a show about food on the telly. Preferably with lesbians. Oh wait, that sounds like Great British Bake Off. Right. It is.

Aside from all these very important time-consuming things, I recently started working in a bakery as a sales apprentice. It drastically shortens my reading time (ughhhhh, 3am alarm, why must you exist), but it’s very awesome. (I mean… all. that. bread. It’s heaven.)

  1. Have you read Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series? :) It’s a great read. She’s managed to mix in paranormal, steampunk and romantic comedy into one. I’ve just started delving into steampunk and I’m quite enjoying it.

    • In fact, I have read them, yes, and adore them very much. You should give Gail’s Finishing School series a try as well if you haven’t already. They’re set in the same universe but before Parasol Protectorate and in a sort of boarding school setting. They’re veeeeery awesome and I might love them more than Parasol Protectorate. >.>

      • I have them in my TBR already. I’m still going through the Protectorate series :)

        She’s got another new series coming, I saw it on Goodreads the other day but totally forgot the title.
