Erina Alkema

I have loved to read since I was a kid.

I primarily read Literary Fiction and I tend to gravitate towards stories with complex, unruly female characters. I don’t shy away from any genre, but as a mood reader I just can’t help but be drawn to what sounds good in the moment. 

I also enjoy translated fiction, essay collections, graphic novels, nonfiction and horror. I want complicated & diverse characters, rich storytelling, lyrical prose, and intricate world building. 

You can find me curled up with a cup of tea, listening to music and devouring my latest read. I’ve been told I would make a harsh editor, and although that is probably true, it is also how I show my love. My fatal flaw, over-intellectualizing everything.
