I’m Carina but mostly known as Crini or just C.  I’m a thirty-something front-end developer from Germany (with my heart being at home in London).

Used to blog at All About Books from 2010 to 2018, and decided to start over in 2019 with a new blog that’s more than just about books, covering my other interests as well.


My hobbies (and topics to be covered on this blog) besides books are: Cooking, hand lettering and plants.

While being neither vegan nor vegetarian, I’m really into trying to eat more healthy and thoughtful and love to try out new recipes all the time.

If you walk into my flat, you’ll easily notice I’m a little plant obsessed. Not only are they everywhere but I also like to experiment, like growing a plant from a lemon seed.

I’ve always had a creative streak and picked up hand lettering somewhere around 2015. You might know my work from the Collector’s edition of V.E. Schwab’s A Darker Shade of Magic or items from Illumicrate.
