About


For questions & or a chat I can be reached at jirrinereadsfiction@hotmail.com

Hi! I am Jirrine, 22 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I am about to start the last year of my bachelor’s degree in American Studies and I also did one year of the English Language and Culture bachelor. I loved the literature courses (no suprise here!) but I had extreme difficulties with the Linguistic courses so I just decided to focus on finishing one degree. I might pursue something English related in the future though. I live with my boyfriend and my two kitties, Bakso & Fenix.

What is your favorite genre? What do you read the most?
I mostly read YA, but sometimes I pick up Adult or Middle Grade books. My favorite genre is Dystopian and a close second is Historical Fiction. Apart from those two I read basically anything except for Erotica. I would say that my least favorite genre is chicklit/romance. I read the most dystopian novels and I have lot of unread dystopians on my shelf.

In what format do you prefer to read?
I think I actually like paperback best. By far the most of my books are paperbacks. Often because of budget reasons but I think that some hardcover books are too heavy and to bothersome to read. I do own an iPad on which I read the occasional ebook, usually novella’s or freebies. But I love the smell and feel of a new book too much to read ebooks often.

In which manner do you organize your books?
Most people that know really find my way of organizing my books odd. I have one book shelf in my house and all my unread books in there are spines facing backwards. For me this makes it really visual to see what I still have to read. The rest of my books are sorted by height and then I group series together and standalones together. I do not keep to color coordinated or alphabetically because I get annoyed when all of them are different heights.

What other things do you like to do beside reading?
Travelling! Next week I am going camping in France for a couple of weeks with my boyfriend. I like to watch television, favorites are Game of Thrones and New Girl. I also love Scandal.

Hope you have a fun time reading my blog and feel free to leave a comment!
