Hello, fellow book enthusiasts!
My name is Marina and I run this little corner of the internet where I have conveniently placed A Makeshift Library. I share with you a variety of content that is not only book related, but anything that strikes my fancy. The majority of my content is either on this blog or on my channel, which you should absolutely check out!
My favourite author has to be Agatha Christie, although I have yet to read her entire collection of works (it’s okay to try to savor books!). I am also that annoying person peeking over your shoulder at bookstores and giving unsolicited recommendations on which books to read next.
I have attended Ryerson University for Journalism and also graduated from Sheridan College with a BBA in Global Business Management and a certificate in Creativity and Creative Problem Solving (in partnership with the State University of New York). I’m currently starting my journey in Publishing at Ryerson’s Chang School of Continuing Education. It seems I am now a part of the old crowd in classrooms.
I also moderate and contribute to FY Toronto (photography and all things about and related to Toronto).
If you are a fellow Canadian book blogger or booktuber, join our Facebook networking group called Book Influencers Canada (authors and publishers not allowed).
Beyond reading, I enjoy romantic walks to the bookstore. Indie music, cats, calamari and mozzarella sticks. I’m a Latinx intersectional feminist. ISFP aka a total adventurer. I enjoy playing Legend of Zelda games and sometimes D&D.
Find me all over the webz on the social links on the sidebar. I am active on Twitter daily, if you’re looking to hear from me sooner.
Happy reading and book hoarding! Check your tea, don’t let it get cold!
