My name is Demetra, but most people call me Demi. I am 20 years old and currently attending the University of Essex, studying Criminology with Social Psychology. I was born in Romania, moved to Germany in July 2011 with my family and currently reside in the United Kingdom. I speak 4 languages: Romanian, English, German and Spanish (more or less) and also studied Russian for a year. I love scrapbooking, travelling, photography and collecting (postcards, coins, stamps, bookmarks, magnets).
I have decided to create this blog in order to share my thoughts on all kinds of topics, but mainly it is going to be about books and movies since they both play a big part in my favourite free-time activities. My passion for reading started in 2009 and ever since I have read over 200 books (which I do not think is a great amount of, but I am working on it); among my favourite genres are Fantasy, Romance and Mystery. I have loved watching movies and TV shows since forever and it is easier for me to find time to watch a movie rather than read a book (proved by the fact that I have watched over 600 movies to this day). I am a strong member of the “Books are better than movies” Party.
My favourite authors are Nicholas Sparks and Dan Brown; besides their books, I also love “The Perfume” by Patrick Süskind and “The Book Thief” by Markus Zusak. I keep a record of all the movies that I watch and rate them (on a scale from 0 to 10).
Regarding the photos I post on my blog
Every picture that has either ©BooksTraveller or ©Demetra Cojocariu written on it are mine. Most of those I put @Bookstraveller on were created with the help of Canva. The rest, and I know I use a lot, I find through Google searches and I do not own them!
