About Me

Hello and welcome to The Wonderlost Reader. I’m V, and this is my corner of the internet to talk all things books.

I have been an avid reader all of my life, and I truly do believe that books can contribute to a better world for all of us. You can learn (almost) anything between the pages of a book, and I think the most important of those is empathy: understand another person’s perspective, experiencing things you could never experience in your real life.

I’m slowly travelling the world through the pages of my books, and I invite you to come along on the journey with me.
