Hi! My name is Charlotte and I’m a twenty-year-old girl living in The Netherlands.
In 2013 I bought my first DSLR and I’ve been photographing ever since. I’m that girl who never goes outside without a camera, a book and a sketchbook, and I always have to take pictures of everything that fascinates me. In 2015 I started combining my love for photography and books, and since then my Instagram account (@booksandteacups) became a Bookstagram account. I love the simple things in live, like enjoying a good book, long mornings in bed with coffee and discovering new places.
I’ve just graduated high school and I’m currently taking a gap year, trying to figure out what I want to study next year. Having a gap year made me realize my love for drawing, which resulted in me opening my very own sticker shop. I first started my shop on Etsy, but quickly realized that I wanted to have my own shop on my own website.
I don’t really have a favourite book genre, although I do really love to read Fantasy and Contemporary – preferably YA or NA. If I had to choose my all time favourite author (even though that is a really hard question) I’d probably choose Leigh Bardugo. She’s definitely my inspiration and I really hope I’ll get to meet her someday! Her Fantasy series The Grisha Trilogy was the series that got me into reading Fantasy.
As for tv series, some of my favourites are Downton Abbey, Brothers & Sisters and Call the Midwife, and I also really enjoy binge-watching Gilmore Girls. I don’t really have a favourite movie, but two actors I absolutely adore are Emma Watson and Liana Liberato.
