Hello! I’m Tanaya (pronounced Ta-nay-yah). Like most people with unusual names, I’m very used to being called different variations. I’m a 23-year-old from Sydney, Australia, and if it isn’t obvious, I really love books. I am a graduate with a Bachelor of Marketing and Media, and whilst in my last few years of study decided that this love of reading was something I wanted to pursue professionally. Currently I am working on the marketing team of an online Australian bookstore, and I am loving getting to be immersed in books on a daily basis. My dream job would be to work on the marketing or publicity team of a publisher!
I love young adult books the most, but I’m slowly getting into other genres including adult fiction and the classics. In fact, recently I’ve started to come to terms with the fact that my reading tastes are changing at quite the rapid pace, and that there are many other genres of books that I seem to be enjoying over YA. This isn’t to say that I don’t still love YA, I do! YA just needs to be really well done for me to really enjoy it these days. The most recent book I’ve fallen in love with is The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern. After putting off reading it for years, I’m questioning myself as to why I waited so long.
I have a passion for travelling, and it is my goal to visit all 50 states of America in my lifetime. So far, I’ve been to ten (California, Nevada, Washington, Illinois, New York, Arizona, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Hawaii and Washington DC – which is not a state but still somewhere I’ve been).
I’d love to hear any book recommendations you have for me! Leave me a comment! Thanks for reading my thoughts on my favourite thing in the world – books!
P.S I work basically 13 out of 14 days a fortnight at the moment, and am not having nearly as much time as I once did to blog. I am working on getting back into a more constant blogging routine, but I apologise until then for my all over the place posting!
