My name is Carina and I'm 21 years old. Right now I'm going to university to study law and while I really like it, I started to read a lot of novels to counterbalance all the textbooks I have to read. And despite being from Germany, about 99% of the novels I read are written in English and therefore I decided to write an English blog.
At the beginning of 2011 I started reading book blogs for Young Adult literature and soon my to-read list started to grow and didn't want to stop. Since so many fantastic bloggers helped me with their reviews to find the books I like, I decided that I would start to write reviews myself, hoping that I can help at least one of you with these.
As you can see once you take a closer look at Fictional Distraction, I mainly read young adult fiction. When I started this blog (and still) I concentrated on paranormal stories, but as time passes I like to explore more and more genres - dystopian, (urban) fantasy, mystery, contemporary and historical fiction. And occasionally I also love to read a good, light-hearted chick-lit novel.
