About Me

christian. daughter. sister. friend. not that brave. wanna be someone. I like to read and to watch movies. I am not a very outdoorsy person, although I like nature. Of course, I like to send and to received mail. My Pinterest account should give anyone an idea about what I like and what I don't.

What I can send

At the moment I can only send flat mail, but I can be creative with that one as well.
Since this is the only kind of mail I can send, it's only fair to receive the same kind of mail.

! If swaps don't arrive in time, please contact me before rating. I will resend.

! Please, be fair when you give hearts. I am not begging for them. Give a heart when you actually think I deserve it, not just because it's popular to give one. Knowing for which swaps I really deserve hearts helps me, and I consider it a sort of feedback for future swaps. Also, I don't give hearts just because.

Favorite Books

"Gone with the Wind" "To Kill a Mockingbird" "The Color Purple" "Daddy Long Legs" "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" "The Shack" "Girl With a Pearl Earring" "The Picture of Dorian Gray" "Nobody's Boy" Jane Austin's novels "The Fault in our stars"; Angie Smith's books; Melanie Shankle's books;

Comment: You definitely read a lot during the month! Murder on the Orient Express is one of my favorite books by Agatha Christie (granted, I only read 2 lol). If you have the chance to watch the movie, I found it pretty good but some things were changed unfortunately. That much I didn't appreciate because I thought Agatha Christie's book was good enough that it didn't need to be modified.

Comment: Looks like you had a good reading month! :) Murder on the Orient Express is one of my favorite books, but not my favorite Christie book, if that makes any sense. :) Thanks for sharing :)
Response: It makes total sense! What's your favorite Christie book?
Comment: Finally got your lovely letter. My life is extremely hectic right now, but I have you down to write back. It may take some months--hope you dont mind. Best wishes for keeping your sanity until summer break. Thank you for writing.

Comment: Thank you for sharing. It sounds like a fab month.
Comment: Thanks for sharing! I like how simple little thing make you happy :)
Comment: Sounds like you had a really good month, Ioana! I haven't ever read anything by Fredrik Backman, but I have his A Man Called Ove on my TBR, so I hope to read one of his works someday! You wrote that "February-March were pretty cruel." Do you mean that these months were especially cold? It is my dream to someday visit Romania in the winter, so maybe February would be a good time to plan a trip? :-) Thank you so much for sharing!
Response: Yes, February is usually colder than December and even January. Not necessarily a lot of snow all over the country, but in the cities and towns up in the mountains there is snow even now! I do hope you visit Romania, it.s a beautiful country with a lot of things to visit.
