My favourite book(s)

My favourite book, and has almost always been...


... and yours? Email me!

When I was 15, I travelled to Scotland, and later to England, and I visited some of the places in which some Harry Potter scenes were filmed, as the gardens of the castle (not the castle), in Scotland.

I completely fell in love with Great Britain, and I still am in love

The first time I read the book was only days after it began to be sold in Spain, I was seven years old!

Since then, I have read all the books when they were released.

Years after, when I was a teenager, I read them again, in English this time.

I am a proud Harry Potter freak!

Tell me in an email which is your favourite book, and some things about why, or what you want, as I have done

HAPPY WORLD BOOK DAY

TAKE A BOOK. RELAX. ENJOY, LET YOUR MIND FREE
