About Me

My name is Vivien, I'm 29 and live with my boyfriend and little baby boy in Hamburg, Germany. I work in a bookstore and I love books! I also like analogue and instant photography and writing letters and postcards.

Favorite Books

Please check my goodreads account: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/19410772-vivien

Wordery wishlist https://wordery.com/wishlist/02be50d7c9661c2227d07c9c8332f556

When sending me a book, please not a second or third etc part of a series! I always need to read part 1 first. And I prefer Hardcover. When you have a used Hardcover in good condition and a new paperback, I prefer the Hardcover!

My favorite crime authors are Jeffery Deaver, Tess Gerritsen, Kathy Reichs, J.T. Ellison and Nele Neuhaus. Eva Ibbotson is one of my favorite authors of children books. And I like this young adult/ fantasy books e.g. by Cassandra Clare, C.C. Hunter, the Fantasy Books By Jennifer Armentrout, Jennifer Estep, Veronica Roth and Kerstin Gier. Except from these I liked in the last months How to love by Katie Cotugno; Rubbernecker by Belinda Bauer; What was Lost by Catherine O'Flynn; The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie; Society by Mary Ann Shaffer; Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan; If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch; Room by Emma Donoghue; Warp by Eoin Colfer; The Cavendish Home for Boys and Girls by Claire Legrand; Skin by Emma Forrest; The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon; The Remains of the Day by Kazuo Ishiguro; Darwen Arkwright and the Peregrine Pact by A.J. Hartley; Black Arts: The Books of Pandemonium by Andrew Prentice and Jonathan Weil

Currently I‘m binge-Reading the Lindsay Gordon Series By Val McDermid (Some years ago I read the Kate Brennigan Series in a Month or so..) So I Would love to Discover similar Books!

I only dont like lovestories.

When your native Language isn‘t english, i would love to get Book recommendations (But please make Sure Theres a german or english translation)

Postcards

My absolutely favorite are old (the older the better!) photographs of a town (that combines two of my favorite things: photography and history!)

I like art cards. Preferable modern art, or photography or dreamy illustrations. I‘d love to receive famous or prized photographs!

Or send me a photo you took (with the story behind please!).

I love postcards with a Book theme.

I would love to receive an embroidered card.

I don't like funny and cartoon cards.

This is the link to my postcrossing favorites: http://www.postcrossing.com/user/photovivie/gallery/favourites

I prefer cards without envelope and written (something about you or a book recommendation).

Naked Postcards

If it’s a empty postcard swap i‘d prefer art cards (paintings or sculptures or photographs or mixed media, from different times, I’d like the not so famous pieces or artists). I have postcard-Penpals with which I only send art cards. So always looking for new cards for them!

Also welcome are animals in cards, ships or trains (these I can use for postcrossing ).

And I participate in the „Postcard from a place I don’t live“ swaps, so i like touristy cards too, my favourites are single air views. But the most perfect cards would be vintage cards or museum cards (:

Wishlist

I always like to get post- or greeting cards, i like stationery, books, book recommendations, bookmarks, stamps, pens, embroidery patterns... I would like to receive vegan receipes or cute DIY tutorials - HandMade with love is great! I'm always looking for empty address labels.

Did I mentioned? I love getting postcards! :D

My favorite stationery is very clean and modern. I don't like kitschy or childish stuff.

I have a Filofax in A5 and a personal size one. So accessories for them are welcome too.

And I Love Le Pen marvy pens in black! (Or similar in black - which are extremely thin)

Also on my wishlist: Books (look here: https://www.goodreads.com/review/list/19410772-vivien?order=d&shelf=to-read&sort=position)

Comment: Hallo Vivien, Vielen Dank für deine schöne historische Karte, über die ich mich sehr gefreut habe. Als ich das erste Mal auf der Wartburg war, hätte ich diese Karte neu kaufen können... ist eben ne Weile her. Vor ein paar Jahren waren wir wieder da... der Tintenfleck ist immer noch da. Ob den ab undzu jemand nachfärbt 🤔 Beste Grüße aus Brandenburg!
Response: Haha, das würden sie doch nicht wagen - oder?? 🤔😅

Thank you for 3 great postcards you sent me in January and thank you for book recommendations. Soulles is one of my favorite books and I think of Gail Carriger ad my book guru every book she recommended on her blog - I loved.

Sorry it took me so long to react, I had very bad winter and it took me 4 long month to come back to myself.

Happy reading and swapping. Ksenia
