About me

Hi *waves*! My name is Cindy. I’m from Belgium, which is a tiny country in Europe. You might know it from its many delicious beers, our famous fries or the statue of the little boy that’s peeing all day long in Brussels. I’m 25 years old and I’m a PhD student at the University of Nottingham and the University of Adelaide. 

Aside from this I’m also an avid reader. Anywhere I go I take a book with me, so it’s pretty likely you’ll be able to spot me at work, at home or roaming around beautiful Ghent/Nottingham/Adelaide with a book in my hands. I’m especially interested in anything Fantasy, Science Fiction, Horror or Historical Fiction. Because I like to connect with other readers out there, readers from all over the world, I started this blog to share my opinions about the books I’m reading. Later on I ventured further in the ‘book blogosphere’ and started (shyly at first) contacting some of my favourite authors for interviews and other features. I’ve been doing it almost 4 years now and it’s been a fantastic experience. I’ve made some great friends along the way and I’ve learned so much! Thank you for visiting my blog and feel free to contact me (draumrkopa@outlook.com) if you have any questions.





I am currently not accepting any review requests.








The name of this blog “Draumr Kópa” was chosen from the Inheritance cycle books by Christopher Paolini. I chose it for a personal blog before I became a book reviewer. I have no claim on this name whatsoever, the name is property of Christopher Paolini alone. I only use it as it is a wonderful memory of my teenage Fantasy reading years and I see it as a homage to that.

  1. Hi, I love your blog! I could swear the last time I bumped across it there wasn’t English, so I moved on x_x I’ll look forward to discussing books with ya!

    • Hi and thank you! I started out in Dutch (I’m from Belgium), but since there isn’t that big of a community here I switched to English a few months later and have been blogging in English ever since. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. You wouldn’t happen to be doing Nanowrimo again this year? We met (last year, year before that? unsure…) on the kick-off event and I ended up adding you to my “writing buddies”. Even if you don’t “compete” this year or don’t show up at the kick-off; I should say “thank you!”; because if I hadn’t talked to you back then, I never would have picked up the entire series (up til now.) of “A Song of Ice and Fire”. Which is, pretty much, why I still remember you.

    Anyway, I’m rambling. Bye!

    • Oooh, hi! I’m not joining the challenge this year, as I have lots and lots of other stuff to do unfortunately! But wow, what a nice comment 😀 I’m glad to be remembered by the books I recommended 😀 I hope you enjoyed the series?

      • Ah, that’s too bad. Maybe one of the next years then… To tell the truth, I had completely forgotten you had been the one to guide me to the song of ice and fire. I was just checking my “writing buddies” on Nanowrimo, and there you were: Memories rebooted…
        And, naturally I enjoyed the series. Though in my humble opinion, it’s too obvious that Daenerys is the main main character. Oh well… one ugly rose among hundreds of beauties.
