Hi! I am Makarena, welcome to Olivine Books. I am a twenty-something-year-old Consumer Psychologist with a passion for reading. I began this blog back in 2015 (formerly called La Luna Vita). It used to contain more content that was lifestyle-oriented. However, as time passed, I found myself sharing mostly book reviews. Therefore, in 2018 I decided it was for some change. La Luna Vita became Olivine Books, leading me to create an Instagram account exclusively for book-related content.

Now I use this space to share more detailed reviews in comparison to the ones I share on Instagram. And yes, you may encounter a few random posts here and there. It’s basically a creative outlet — I’ve had numerous blogs since I was a teen (from Xanga to Tumblr). Now that I’m getting closer to my thirties, I’ve realized it wasn’t just a “phase”. Writing and sharing information is something I certainly enjoy doing.

Last but not least, another passion of mine is photography. I love the process of taking and editing photographs (even if it might take hours). So in other words, Olivine Books is exactly that — a combination of my hobbies. I read, I write about books and I obviously photograph them.

Thank you for stopping by!
