About Me

Hello all! My name is Manuela and welcome to Fathoms Amidst the Lines! This blog has been a constantly evolving idea for quite some time and I finally decided to sit down and make it. This blog will be filled with various book-related things like reviews, lists, hauls, etc. and some of my writing.

I graduated from university in 2018 with my BA in English Language and Literature, with minors in Art History and History, and I’m currently in grad school working toward my MA in Communications.

My love for reading began as a child when my Mom, Oma (grandma), and Opa (grandpa) would read me fairy tales and other children’s books. While I grew up a reader and always enjoyed books, 5th grade changed things for me as J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was released in the U.S. and, thanks to my incredible teacher, my life was changed and my love for reading reached an entirely new level; one that continued to rise as each new Harry Potter was released and trips to the bookstore and the library became more frequent.

As an adult, I have continued to read a variety of genres and am always on the lookout for my next read. There’s no one genre that I love over another, but I really enjoy Fantasy, YA, Sci-Fi, Historical Fiction, Historical Non-Fiction, Paranormal, Mystery, Suspense, and Thrillers.

What began with bedtime (and anytime really) stories has exploded over the years and left me with a never-ending thirst for the next story. I look forward to sharing my thoughts and opinions on the books I read and starting conversations with my readers.

I also write bookish related things for Functionally Fictional and post reviews on Goodreads.

Thank you for visiting Fathoms Amidst the Lines and if would like to contact me, please use either my Contact page or email me directly at fathomsamidstthelines@gmail.com.

Happy Reading!
