About Me

Hello! My name is Katja (pronounced Kot-tsya said super fast). I have yet to meet an anglophone who can correctly pronounce my name. 😉 I am a Canadian bibliophile, writer, and child of God. I have many favourite things (including bullet point lists, so you guys will be seeing those a lot) and I love to talk about the things I love.

I am a 19-year-old homeschool graduate currently pursuing a copyediting certificate in university, an Independent Baptist preacher’s daughter, and the oldest of nine children. I live in Québec and am bilingual French & English (an all-important skill when it comes to reading cereal boxes and product descriptions. Seriously, do you have any idea how much those two little squares of writing differ?) Being bilingual has its challenges, but I am embracing my weird French-English language as part of my heritage from both cultures. (The same goes for my mixture of ASL and LSQ xD). 

I am a real-deal history nerd with strong British attachments and old-fashioned leanings. I’m also a complete and absolute bibliophage and librocubicularist. Among the many other things I love are:

  • Old books.
  • Beautiful handwriting. 
  • Punctuation. 
  • WWII books.
  • Listening to hymns (especially sung by male choirs).
  • Chocolate (except dark chocolate). 
  • Beautiful book spines.
  • Bookstagrams.
  • Sarcasm & wit (ironically, I’m not at all witty myself).
  • Anything heirloom-ish.  
  • Singing.
  • Words (the dictionary is a lovely place to be in). 
  • Classic poetry. 
  • Latin.  
  • Laughing.
  • Flowing skirts (the 1860s are my favourite dress period). 
  • Roses (especially if they’re pink).
  • Tearjerking books.
  • Quotes.
  • Organization (though I hate to take the time to do it).
  • Ampersands, tildes [~], & braces [ { } ] (which you guys will probably notice before long, if you haven’t already).


                                    I also love talking, if you haven’t guessed. ;P

                                    And most of all, I love people. And above all, my Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ. ❤

                                    This blog will envelop all these interests of mine, except reviews, which have been moved to Old-Fashioned Book Love. I hope someone else can find it enjoyable, inspiring, and helpful. 🙂
