My name is Melinda and I live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Cape Town, South Africa. I am a self proclaimed bookworm with an ill attempt to resist the escapism that books offer.   I love the smell of books and to escape into the magical world of fiction, while burning scented candles and listening to the pouring rain – it’s one of my favourite things to do.

Some of my favourite authors include Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Daphne du Maurier, Arturo Pérez-Reverte, Alexandre Dumas, Kate Morton, Lucinda Riley, Jane Austen and Jamie Ford.  My preference is literary fiction, but I frequently read across genres.

If you like my posts, please do follow me and I hope we will have a lot of bookish thoughts and discussions to share with each other.
