I'm Maria, a girl from Portugal who loves debating, reading, writing, learning foreign languages, photography, theatre, cinema, fashion, music (I play the guitar and the violin) and History. I'm a free thinker, a hard worker, somewhat blunt, logical, persistent, stubborn, hot tempered, proud, out-spoken and opinionated but I'm also funny, friendly, loud and just overall insane, so do feel free to follow this blog if you want to.
What will you find in here?
Well, to be honest, quite a bit of everything I'm interested in... You'll see book reviews and book hauls, critics/reviews of new episodes of my favourite tv shows and even my opinion on a recent film I've just watched.
What kind of books/films/shows do I like?
Okay, let's start with tv shows: I'm a huge fan of Downton Abbey, Merlin, Game of Thrones, The Vampire Diaries, Once Upon a Time and I think, at the moment, that's about it. I'm considering starting watching some others, like "The Tudors", but I'm open to recommendations.
When it comes to cinema and films, some of my favourites are: Marie Antoinette, The Duchess, The Young Victoria, Anonymous, Jane Eyre, Like Crazy, Blindness and Atonement.
As far as books go, the list is incredibly long, so I'll just list some of my absolute favourites of all time: The Harry Potter series (books that I grew up with and that hold a very special place in my heart), The Hunger Games trilogy, Anna and the French Kiss, The Picture of Dorian Gray, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Looking for Alaska and A Song of Ice and Fire (although I'm still reading the second book, I'm already pretty much obsessed with it).
And I think this is it for now!
