About this blog (and me)

Sum, ergo lego. - I am, therefore I read.

Hi and welcome to my blog, thanks for stopping by!

I love reading the personal background infos on other blogs, so if you are like me and are curious about the raison d'etre of the blog and the person behind the blog, this is the place :-)

Who am I? Hello, I'm Stella, 25 years old and a bookaholic. I have loved reading ever since I learned how to, I simply love how a wonderful story can make you escape to faraway lands and old forgotten times and relive and experience great adventures and emotions! Reading is one of the greatest way of dreaming.
But besides my passion for books, there's quite a few other things I love to do: my other greatest passion is travelling! I love to explore different parts of the world and get a glimpse at the local natural and civilized beauties as well as meet the local people and their customs and traditions! I love experiencing the way people there live and try their cuisine. I love cooking (especially desserts!), and of course watching movies. I love going out with my friends and have passionate discussions around a round of cocktails! :-)

What kind of books do I read? My reading range is quite wide and eclectic: I love reading anything from a good old classic to not just simply contemporary fiction and crime/thriller novels, but since I discovered the urban fantasy realm and the paranormal romance universe (and the simple romance genre too), I can't get enough of those either!

My favourite genres are chick lit, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, crime and thriller, historical romance.

I'm also of a multilinguist (and love learning languages), I read books in French, Hungarian, and Italian, but I read the most in English as most of the books I'm interested in are written by English-speaking authors.

Why this blog? I would like to share my thoughts about books I have read and see your comments and discuss them :-)

Why Ex Libris? Ex Libris literally means "from the books" in Latin, this expression is used as in "Quoted from", but I like to give it another meaning: "from the books" as in when I'm reading, all characters and settings step out from the books and I'm included in their world.
