about me

Welcome to the inked forest where stories grow on trees //

My name is Luana. My nickname is Lucy.

I’m a 28 year old introvert, podiatrist, perpetual reader and the queen of tea consumption. Just so you know, I like my tea strong without sugar.

I love books, as you can tell. I fell in love with the written word from the moment that I learnt to read, and I’ve never looked back. Nothing compares with the feeling of being transported into another world and escaping reality for a little while. Life unfortunately gets in the way.

I live on an island in the Mediterranean and dream of travelling the world while also wanting to stay at home all day. If I could live anywhere else, it would be a hard choice between Paris and London.  I love crisp autumn nights, quiet summer afternoons and spending time with my own company. I want to befriend all the dogs in the world. I wish that my dog could have lived forever. I love the sound of trees as they sway in the wind. I love the smell of coffee, fresh baked bread and beeswax candles. I want to walk down the aisles of every bookstore, own a huge library and spend cold winter nights marathoning the Lord of the Rings films.

I am eternally accused of being too quiet. I talk too much with myself. I consider myself an idealist, eclectic and one who prefers to live in dreams rather than reality .

 Welcome to my blog. I hope you enjoy wandering around.
