me in china

Hey, my name is Emma / Kishmish Reads (which is the ridiculous username I’m using for wordpress). I love YA books and I have been reading them for years and I am always looking for more and more amazing books. Let me know if you know any I might like! 🙂 My favourite books of all time would have to be The Throne of Glass series followed by the ACOTAR series, Daughter of Smoke and Bone then Cassandra Clare’s new series The Dark Artifices. Basically all the books in the picture above and many, many more.
I am also a writer and a creator of many stupid usernames. I hope you find some books you might be interested in on my blog. 🙂


I am currently working in China because I want to see the world. But it’s not always easy, I’m an introvert by nature and so my job is sometimes incredibly tiring. I hope to keep this blog updated weekly as much as possible. Just because I enjoy writing about books and connecting with you guys.  But some days I just want to be a cupboard, shut my doors and nobody is home. Or for the entire week. If you want to travel the world even if you’re bit of quiet person like me, do it. Don’t let you stop yourself. Fear shouldn’t stop you. Be a Gryffindor. Pretend to be a character from a novel. Do whatever it takes to get yourself out there, just live life without regret. Similarly, if you freaking hate something, get out. Time is the most valuable and limited thing you have. People pay you to use your time for their endeavours. Remember that your time should primarily go towards making you happy.
