Hello! Welcome to my blog!
I’m an avid reader and film buff from Riga, Latvia, and when I started this blog, I envisioned it as a space to share my thoughts on some of the books and films that I’ve read/watched. I mostly write about books, but I’m hoping to branch out into writing more about film as well.
I’m mostly drawn to literary fiction, works in translation, short story collections, and science fiction. I enjoy participating in reading events, especially those that focus on works in translation, and following the Man Booker International Prize and the Best Translated Book Award.
Since I’m passionate about promoting works in translation, I created (and try to regularly update) a comprehensive list of literature in translation from the Baltic states.
As for film, my taste is very eclectic, and I’m interested in both the latest Hollywood movies, as well as independent and world cinema.
Thanks for visiting! 🙂
