About Me & Leafing Through Time

Hello! Welcome to my corner of the Internet.

My name is Simone, your average 26-year-old reader. I’m glad you found my blog!

Before starting this blog, I was already involved in the bookish community via Bookstagram. I got inspired to make one when I finally got some decent bookshelves. But I also wanted a place to talk about books more in depth, and thus my blog was born!

I’m currently a graduate student at the University of Leiden, which is one of the best universities in the Netherlands. Perhaps surprisingly, my major has nothing to do with literature, at all. I’m pursuing a degree in global conflict resolution. Sometimes this major is very depressing, and I love to retreat into a good book!

What to expect on Leafing Through Time

I love blabbing about books, and as you read through my posts you’ll notice I have a very laid back writing style. I’m not afraid to throw in some slang every now and then. Basically, I write as a speak. I like this style because I feel like it makes me more real, and not just a voice on the Internet. I want you to feel like you’re reading a long text from a friend!

Leafing Through Time is primarily a book blog. I talk about all things bookish; from reviews, to book tags, to discussion posts. I write monthly wrap ups to tell you what I’ve been reading, and I post new releases so you can stay up to date!

But aside from that, I also like to talk about lifestyle every now and then. So you can also expect some posts about travel, recipes, and how-to posts!
