NEW BLOG POST EVERY SATURDAY!
Hello, hello! My name is Yaiza Canopoli and this is where I review books! As you’ve probably guessed by the blog title, I’m a Ravenclaw, and, well, I like reading. I also like lots of other things, like Skyrim and Queer as Folk and rucola. But this blog is mainly about books.
I read pretty much everything, but I especially love books that focus on feminism, gender, sexuality, and race, especially if they intersect. I also like epic fantasy, although I don’t read nearly enough of it, and I can never resist books by Nigerian writers (I blame Chimamanda). I can usually be found browsing second-hand books or lying in bed whining about how cold it is. I write monthly wrap-ups (occasionally) and I also review books separately when I have a lot to say (which is more often than not), so you will definitely find lots and lots of bookish recommendations. I also spend too much time watching LGBT+ themed movies, which is why I started a weekly (ish) series called Queer Movie Friday.
In September of 2016 I moved to Norwich to study English Literature, so I am now officially a book blogger from the UK. In the future I’m planning on either doing a Masters degree in something related to race or postcolonial literature, go into publishing, or work in a bookshop. I write for a few different publications, so if you would like to check that out, the links are on my ‘other writing’ page.
See y’all around!

About my blog design
The feather you can see in my header was originally found on Open Clipart, and then edited by me. The funky hand-drawn lines that I use as separators were extracted from this image on Freepik. The different backgrounds for each featured image will be linked at the bottom of the corresponding post.
