Whale 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.)
