I am middle-aged psychiatric nurse, married, and two grown-up kids already away from home, a grandmother to a girl born 5/21 ... and I love books!

I love cozy mysteries, travel stories and books about food (especially food-related memoirs and such) and modern writers like Anne Tyler, Paul Auster, Julia Glass etc, but I also love a good classic!
I read both in Finnish and English.
If you look at my BC-bookshelves, they don't tell you the whole truth, I have plenty of books that are not registered in BC. Like books from my favourite authors, that I like to keep.

Most of the books in my wishlist are in English, but I would be as happy to get the same book in Finnish :) I update my wishlist very often.

I am trying to declutter my house, so it is pretty hard to think about other wishes, but here's some:
* my biggest wish is wishlist-book, and also books about food (especially food-related memoirs, not so much cookbooks as such) I read both in Finnish and English.
* CHOCOLATE , especially unusual taste or chocolates with filling (rather than plain) like chocolate with pineapple or Irish cream truffle or Fry's Turkish Delight! And I like more milk chocolate than dark, but anything is good!
* I love the combination of sweet and savory, like chocolate covered prezels or something like that.
* I also love to try new food, cookies, drinks, spices etc. I love stuff with wasabi, watermelon or ginger! And hot chocolate!
* Notebooks, nice good pens and pencils, decorative tapes, bujo stickers. I have a bit sarcastic, dark sense of humor, so stickers suitable for it are great!
* woollen or cotton socks, size 40 / 6 uk/8,5 us
* bookplates in English or Finnish
* candles, scented or not, doesn't matter!
* I don't usually wear make-up, but I love nail-polishes!
* wings for a month, if I've been without for a while
* a magazine in English (can be used) about cooking, decorating, generally women/home-kind of themes. Not gossip-, music-,movies- or fashion (they are not my cup of tea).
* I love to do 1000-piece jigsaw puzzles too!
* Anywhere Travel Guide: 75 Cards for Discovering the Unexpected, Wherever Your Journey Leads (can be used!)

* Recycled and second-hand items are defenitively big YES!
