My name is Aleesha and I am 22 years old.
I am currently finishing my degree in French, Spanish and Mandarin Chinese and by July 2014, I will officially be a graduate.
I’ve been a huge fan of book for as long as I can remember. My favourite part of primary school was when we went to the, admittedly extremely small, library and got to choose our new book for the week. I remember my 5 year old self falling in love with books especially the works of Roald Dahl. So much so that I read every single one of his books.
As clichéd as it may sound, my world changed when at the age of 8 years old, I was handed Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone. My world would never be the same again. To this day, these books are up there with my all time favourites, so much so that I actually wrote my dissertation on the first Harry Potter book and its translations.
Aside from this series, some of my favourite books are Carrie and The Green Mile by Stephen King, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell and Billy and Me by Giovanna Fletcher.
There is nothing I find more appealing than sitting down with a good book, a cup of tea and a piece of cake, my own little slice of heaven.
I hope you enjoy my blog and the book reviews.
