Air Awakens: Welcome to Solaris

CT-Banner-2 (1)

For my first real post I decided to jump into the Crystal Crowned tour by introducing you to Solaris. The Air Awakens series by Elise Kova is amazing. It is one of the first series after The Hunger Games, Divergent and Throne of Glass where I said to myself YES! I need all of these books in my life. My life is not complete without them. I got book 1 as a gift from my very good friend and booktuber: ReadingMissFroggy.

Hi! And welcome to my blog.

My name is Melisa and I am a 24 year old Media and Communications student at the City University London. I’ve been blogging with my friends on for a year and a half now, but decided I also wanted my own little space. That is how Princess of Reading was born. Even though Dutch is my mother tongue, I prefer English. Hence the reason I am starting uni in London in autumn, so I can hopefully work at an English publisher.

Before all of this I worked for a Dutch Publisher and I was part of their YA Promoteam. We helped promote YA in bookstores, at events, interviewed authors and helped where ever we could. I loved it so much that I didn’t want to let it go after our year was up, so I started blogging.

On this blog you will find book reviews, film reviews, DIYs, and post on a lot of other things that keep me busy.

Hope you enjoy!
