Hello! My name is Francine (which in Dutch shortens to Sien rather than Fran, hence the wordplay). I’m a literature student at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands. I like to write about books and bookish culture. I also love to travel, and I always try to find some literary spots when I’m travelling. On this blog you can find book reviews, literary travel tips and other things I find relevant.
If you can read Dutch, I also write reviews for online literary magazine Passionate Platform.
I love feedback! You can contact me with tips, comments or business proposals at francinemaessen[at]gmail.com.
