Bookcase Showcase: Maria Teresa Fortes da Luz
My name's Maria Teresa Fortes da Luz and I'm a Portuguese girl who loves books.
I've ordered my books by genre, sometimes by age but always using my heart. Half of my books are in English because I don't trust translations, I think most of the times they ruin the original book.
As you can see I am a Stephen King fan. But I'm also a Fleming fan, a Gaiman fan, an Austen fan, an Alice Hoffman fan... Portuguese authors are amazing too: Jose Saramago, Fernando Pessoa, Eça de Queiros, Julio Dinis, Manuel da Fonseca, Fernando Namora.
I love horror, romance, crime, erotica, espionage, fantasy, I love reading, exploring new worlds, books are my passion. I like to read them but I also like to look at them, that's why I don't like to have books in front of books.
Just a note: My bookshelves tell little stories through toys, miniatures, boxes, feathers, random memories, old gifts. The pictures were taken in my bedroom.
