About Me

DSCN0109

Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for your interest and for being here! Some little facts about me:

  • My name is Aldana, but you can call me Aldii
  • I’m 21 years old
  • I’m in my last year of uni, currently studying International Relations
  • My mother tongue is Spanish, but I can talk/read/write in English and I’m currently learning Portuguese.
  • I have had this blog for about four years, but I have been absent most of it (uni made me do it!)
  • I try to switch between posts in English or Spanish so you might find both languages through my posts
  • I started reading since I was little but to read in an independant and consistant way for fun since I was 14.
  • I’m very active on my Goodreads as it’s my main tool to track my reading experiences.
  • I tend to read fantasy (including different branches in fantasy), but I enjoy classics and romances as well. I try to diverse my reading but that for sure will be on at least some of the books I read each month.
  • I also enjoy watching TV Shows, some of my favourites are Outlander, Peaky Blinders, Poldark, Victoria, Vikings, Sherlock, The Handmaid’s Tale adn Wynonna Earp.

I think that’s all for now! Thank you for reading and I hope to chat with you soon!

      1. Pretty much anything featuring someone from Uruguay as I can’t recall a single book I’ve ever heard of that was written by or features anyone from your country. Beyond that, racial minorities, religious diversity, gender roles, gay community, disabled characters, etc. Thank you for your willingness to make suggestions!

      2. The first one you might like is Horacio Quiroga, he had a difficult life that reflected in his stories that are unique in their own way. I don’t know if any of his stories works with diverse characters but maybe you want to check any of them. Other famous authors are Mario Benedetti, Juana de Ibarbourou,Delmira Agustini. The last two have poems about women. If it’s something more contemporary Cecilia Curbelo has some books (I haven’t read any of them) but the cool thing about them is that the main character has to decide between two options, and you in that situation thinking what you would do choose one and then you read the consequenses of that choice, there are two posible endings. None of these talks about diverse characters, you won’t find that. Sadly I can’t recall any book with diverse characters. I’m sad I couldn’t help but thank you for taking interest in the literature of my country and asking me this.
