So you´re wondering who I am? My name is Bina, I´m a twenty-something grad student living in Germany.
I´ve been blogging for a couple of years now but decided to make a seperate blog about books as most of my posts were about reading.
I read widely and I’m trying to read more diversely as well: Fiction, non-fiction, academic as well as speculative genres and sequential art. I’m happiest following the tales of awesome feminist women of color.
Some of my favorite authors: Nnedi Okorafor, Daniel José Older, Banana Yoshimoto, bell hooks, Jasper Fforde, Noelle Stevenson, Attica Locke, Roald Dahl, Astrid Lindgren, Arundhati Roy, N.K. Jemisin, Xiaolu Guo, Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni, Agatha Christie, Octavia Butler etc.
Some of my favorite books: Ronja Robber´s Daughter, Binti, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator, Lumberjanes, The Cutting Season, The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, Cards on the Table, We Have Always Lived in the Castle, Princeless, The Inheritance Trilogy
