About Me

Barcelona. I read literally everywhere.
“She had always wanted words, she loved them; grew up on them. Words gave her clarity, brought reason, shape.
- Michael Ondaajte, The English Patient

Hi, I'm Kate, and I'm a Pile Person. I surround myself with books and words and can never get enough of them. I always feel awkward writing about myself, so instead, I'm going to write about BOOKS (duh). I also love lists, so that's how this is going to roll. I'd love to hear your answers to the questions as well!

1. Currently reading...
The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness.

2. Currently most excited for...
INSURGENT BY VERONICA ROTH GET OUT I NEEEEED IT.

3. Favourite classic...
Emma or Pride and Prejudice, YOU CAN'T MAKE ME CHOOSE JUST ONE. Now I want to watch Matthew MacFadyen and swoon for awhile.


4. Book read in the most countries...
Life of Pi by Yann Martel. I love this book. I've read it so many times (and in 4 different countries). 

5. Favourite chick lit author...
Pretty much anything by Sophie Kinsella (I always laugh) or Marian Keyes (ohai picture on right).


6. Current #1 book boy crush...
Oh, there are so, so many to choose from. Probably Thomas Finch Mackee from The Piper's Son by Melina Marchetta. I just want to hug him.

7. Current #1 book girl crush...
Again, so incredibly difficult! For now I'll have to go with Puck Connolly from The Scorpio Races by Maggie Stiefvater.

8. Current author crush(es)...
I think Stephanie Perkins and Tahereh Mafi are both too cute for words. <3

9. Book pet peeve...
People on book covers. Sometimes I'm okay with it, but usually it drives me crazy. I don't want any picture presented up front like that.


10. Best thing that happened this week...
I discovered what affogato is. It's gelato with espresso on top AKA TWO OF MY FAVOURITE THINGS IN THE WORLD PUT TOGETHER IN A CUP. I am in love with it.



I'll update this from time to time, so hopefully we can all learn more about each others' tastes (and some flat out random facts!). I will also read anything you throw at me, so please send any and all recommendations my way! I can't wait to talk books with all you perfect bibliophiles. <3

I'm always on twitter - come chat with me: @imlostinabook
Or drop me a line at: lostinabooksomewhere@gmail.com

I have this on my door, but it's really a sign for my life in general.
