I was born in Barcelona and have lived in the UK for many years now. I'm a writer, translator (English-Spanish and vice-versa) and I'm a medical doctor and worked in Forensic Psychiatry many years. I also have a BA and a PhD in American Literature and Film, and a Masters in Criminology. I've always loved books and apart from writing them I review them often. I write a bit of everything, check my books for more information and my about page for links. My blog is bilingual, English and Spanish.

    Interesting reviews, Olga.
    (By the way, thanks for the link on your old site — The email for this one didn’t arrive, so I signed up again.)

    Wishing you a thriving 2016! Hugs 🙂

    1. Thanks, Teagan. I’m not sure exactly what linking is going on behind the scenes between the two sites, as both (and Lit World Interviews where I also post) come up on my dashboard. Hopefully I’ll get to understand how it works before I move again! (I think it’s the jetpack thingy…)
      I’ve started to try to learn coding… Trying to get my head around html (that so far is not too complicated. But java… anyway). Happy new year!

    Great selection of books. Some days I feel buried alive under my tbr pile 😉
    Hugs and many thanks for the great reviews.

    1. Thanks Christoph. I know what you mean.
      I was so curious about the system Amazon uses to promote their own books that I signed to get books before they’re published there too, and of course today I got a choice for next month, one an English translation from an author I know from Facebook, so, yes, you’ve guessed it. The pile is even longer.
      To many more great reads in 2016!

  3. An interesting selection to start the year, Olga, with some very different themes too. ‘Satin Island’ sounds like something I might like, given your thoughts on it.
    Best wishes as always, Pete

    1. Thanks, Pete. I hope 2016 will bring us all happiness (and plenty more to read). I found the three books fascinating, the middle one more of an emotional experience (beautifully written too) and Satin Island more intellectual (and again gorgeous writing). 🙂 I have a few books to read that I’m truly looking forward to because I’ve really loved previous books by the writers.

    I have read three other Geraldine Brooks novels and love her writing style AND content. Thanks for reviewing this new book of hers – it’s a ‘must read’ for me now. Happy New Year!

    1. Thanks, Pamela. I must read more of her books for sure as all the ones I’ve looked at sound a must. I’m thinking of ‘March’ because I love ‘Little Women’ but I’ve read great things about ‘People of the Book’ too. Well, all of them. And happy new year.

  5. Terrific reviews, Olga. I haven’t read any of them, so thanks. And thanks for the link. I’ll sign up again here on the new site so I don’t miss any posts. Cheers and Happy New Years!

    1. Thanks so much and very happy new year to you!
