So what really is Book Couture?

Hey! I’m Tina, a Melbournian high schooler with a passion for reading. 

You’ll usually find me lying across my bed with my nose in a book, probably re-reading Harry Potter or Vampire Academy. Sometimes, I’d be in front of the TV too, catching up with the drama in the latest episode of Glee or Gossip Girl. Otherwise, I’d be plugged into my iPod, listening to Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, and Wicked.

Book Couture is a book blog where I intend to sharing my thoughts on books I love, books I don't love, and everything in between.My primary goal is to recommend good books to other people. The most fulfilling thing for me would be if someone decided to pick up a book I recommend, and enjoy it as much as I did. The thought that someone else out there could be as moved as I am through reading the same story, experiencing the same magic that it evokes, is what moved me to create my own blog.
