First Name : Camille
City : Caen
Favourite author(s) : VE Schwab, Laini Taylor, Anne-Gaëlle Huon, Taylor Jenkins Reid
Favourite genre : Young Adult, Fantasy, Contemporary
My name is Camille, and my internet nickname is Ellydesmots. I live in Caen, the city of books, and as far back as I can remember, I've always loved reading.
My passion for reading intensified in 2017 with the creation of my bookstagram account where I like to give my opinion on my reading. This community that I discovered a bit by chance adopted me and even made me want to make it my job.
In January 2021, I launched my company. Book promotion, collaborations with authors and publishers, photo or video reports, interviews, booktube workshops...
In short, I do literary content creation on the internet! In March 2021, I hosted Festivelly, the first literary festival on Instagram. And in December 2021, I realized another dream, hosting a literary radio show.

Favourite author(s) : Virginie Grimaldi
Favourite genre(s) : Feel-good
Hi, my name is Peggy and I am 38 years old. I run the Instagram account and the Youtube channel Madame_lit. I devour books, (fortunately they are light in calories)...
Rather than keep my feelings to myself I share them, it's cool to exchange and most importantly I discovered that there are many people still passionate about literature despite the powerful arrival of digital. If only my passion could become my job 😁

First Name : Marie
Favourite author(s) : TJ Klune
Favourite genre(s) : Fantasy, Fantastic
My name is Marie but I also answer as Poppins. I'm currently in a Master 1 in business school in data analysis and business digitalization. If you ask my friends to describe me, they will all tell you that I am a globetrotter. Far from the literary world for my studies, I've been reading since I was very young. Sometimes I go out in my slippers, without a phone, but I would never forget my book. Due to a lack of socializing during our beloved pandemic, I created an instagram account in March 2021 where I am fully blossoming.

Reading is my refuge.
As a child, I used to spend my lunch breaks looking for a book in the library, while my classmates rushed outside to play.
Books have the gift of taking us all over the world and through time. They are points of encounter, reconstruction, entertainment, questioning and so much more.
I started my insta account in order to share this passion with people who share this common feeling. Apart from reading, I am passionate about my family, travel, life...

I am studying literature with the aim of becoming a French teacher, but without ever forgetting that contemporary literature and the classics are equal: today's literature will form tomorrow's classics!
