About Us


Welcome aboard, fellow readers, bloggers, lurkers and stalkers!

My name is Karina, and I'm Russian/British who lives in UK Portugal with my husband and a horde of animals. If you want to read about our Portuguese adventure, please head over to Olives and Acorns!

I've been passionately reviewing paranormal, urban fantasy, dystopian and fantasy books on LiveJournal since 2005, but this blog has only been live since May 2011. I'm also very interested in steampunk, historicals, sci-fi, mysteries, thrillers and many other genres, so you'll see an eclectic range of reviews here.

Please, don't be shy and comment away to let me know what you think of my posts and ideas, and you're also very welcome to stalk follow or befriend me on Twitter or Goodreads !

Добро пожаловать на борт, читатели и соратники-блоггеры! Для русских фанатов паранормальных романов, городского фэнтэзи, стимпанка, дистопий и прочей подобной литературы, меня можно найти на ЖЖ под юзерпиком kara-karina  (UPD: :я туда давно уже не заглядываю). ЖЖ, конечно хорош, но я так чувствую, что настало время расти и открывать свой собственный блог, что я, собственно говоря, и делаю.

Блог будет также вестись на двух языках, английском и русском.
Так что, оставайтесь на связи, не стесняйтесь комментировать и до скорого!

P.S. Меня можно найти на Twitter и Goodreads 


Hi guys! My name is Victoria (aka Zemfirka).

Born and raised in Moscow, Russia I’ve been living stateside for some thirteen years now, along with my husband and two adorable dogs.

I’m a fairly new blogger compared to Karina, but I’ve been blogging over at Zemfirka Blogs since February 2013 and absolutely love it. So when Karina offered to join her I couldn’t refuse and here I am! I am picky and opinionated reader, an enthusiastic cook, and dog lover.

I read a variety of genres but tend to favor romantic fiction, whether paranormal, steampunk, or historical. Some dystopian, UF, and even an occasional mystery might make their way onto my reading list. As I said, I like a healthy dose of romance in most books I read, but otherwise if it caught my attention – I want to read it (Adult, YA, NA, even MG if it sounds quirky and interesting, anything goes).

So, I hope you guys enjoy my posts and feel free to leave me comments - I’d love to hear from you! You can also, find me on Goodreads, Twitter, and Pinterest. Victoria, xoxo

In case of zombie apocalypse

Hey, guys! I feel like I should say this just in case :)
If you'd like to sponsor a fellow book addict who sometimes can't sleep at night worrying that she won't have enough books to read if internet goes down in the event of zombie apocalypse (I'm convinced it's one of the top five ways to go for human race) you can donate through Paypal to olivesandacorns at gmail dot com or buy a book through any of the links provided with my reviews which will send me a small percentage from the sale. All proceeds will go towards my enormous TBR. I will also shelter you on the remote farm in Portugal when zombie apocalypse starts provided you survive getting there. There will be books, yay?
Thank you! Love you all
