New project : Book Reviews

Coming soon! Because I like to write but I do not find ideas for non-fiction stories and because I love to read, I have decided that writing reviews of the books I’m reading could be a good practice.

I have studied English literature for the past 6 years so I do know a little bit about novels, short stories and poetry. Yet, I have always found it hard to express my opinions concerning the stories I was reading. By forcing myself to write on this blog, I can get better at writing and of course, expressing feelings.

And at the same time, it could give you ideas for your next book to read! I also hope that it will be an opportunity for you to give me advice on what to read.

The books I read are essentially French and English literature. The first review I am going to write will be of “Vernon Subutex”, volumes 1 & 2, written by Virginie Despentes. (I am still reading the second book at the moment and it’s really exciting).

I hope you’ll like this new topic on the blog!

My first exhibition!

If you go back a few months on my blog, you’ll see that I went to Iceland in July. I have published a few pictures, but not my favorite ones. I knew already that I was going to have them exhibited and didn’t want to spoil the surprise (for those who would be able to see it).

The exhibition (which I called Ég tala ekki íslensku*) has started this morning in my favorite café in Boulogne-sur-Mer (North of France), the Kawa Coffee House. I am really happy that it is taking place there, as I consider that place as my second home.

The photographs can be seen until the end of January. There might be another exhibition somewhere else but I still need confirmation, so hurry up if you’d like to discover a part of my work.
