All About Books


All About Books is a book blog that I started in 2010. I started it as a way to keep track of the books I read, to have an outlet for my thoughts about the books I read and tell the world about my most favorite books so that other people will read them too.
This blog was and always will be just a hobby, a fun way to talk about books which means it has its ups and downs and sometimes needs a short vacation.
After being part of the book blogging community for three years, in which I discovered a lot of wonderful blogs,  got to know and meet a lot of amazing people I also realized that I wanted to change something: A switched from writing in German to writing in English in 2013.

In late 2017 I decided that active blogging wasn’t for me anymore. Since then this blog only occasionally sees a new post, none of them being reviews anymore. If you are still interested in my thoughts on books, feel free to follow me on Instagram instead!

About me:

I’m Carina but mostly known as Crini (sometimes with a decorative ‘x’ as xCrini when the name is already taken) or just C.
I’m a thirty-something front-end developer and a book addict.
I do not only love to read but I also love to collect books which led to my book buying problem and an ever growing TBR I’m constantly trying to reduce.
Books have always been a big part o my life and I can’t remember a time when I haven’t read any books.
