My name is Vivien, I'm in my beginning 30s and live with my son in Hamburg, Germany. I love books! I also like analogue and instant photography and writing letters and postcards.
Please check my goodreads account: https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/19410772-vivien
I like contemporary novels. I prefer female authors. I like to read books from other cultures (I want to read books from every country!). But I like to read classics from time to time too.
I like crime novels (but nothing bloody or psycho, it has to be with great twists and more like a novel than a thriller).
I read 95% in German, 5% in English.
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)
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 absolutely favorites 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.
In 2021 I read a book about lighthouses (The Lamplighters by Emma Stonex) - since then I really wanna visit a lighthouse in my future, and am very interested in them. So send me what you have about lighthouses (stories, travelexperience, postcards), it would make me very happy!
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).
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 (:
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)
I’m vegetarian, so please no Gelatine or meat. I love to try new things! And I love very regional items! What i don’t like is too spicey and salted-caramel. I’m not a big fan of coconut.
