About me

“You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me”

C. S. Lewis



Hello there, I’m Hattie.

I’m a 23-year-old Cornish lover of (yep, you guessed it) all things literary and linguistic. I recently graduated from an MA in Translation and Professional Language Skills, speaking French and Italian. I am now a freelance translator, editor and proofreader. If you are interested in my services, please feel free to contact me or find out more on the ‘Translations’ section of my website.

Having always been somewhat of a bookworm (ask my overloaded bookcase), I decided somewhere along the way to combine my two joys and set up this blog, where I’ll be discussing books I’ve read, hope to read and general bookish thoughts, with an emphasis on translated literature.

Other loves of mine include: stripy clothing, extremely large mugs of tea and DOGS!
