Who am I?

the ghost

Hey there, I’m Rachmi Febrianty but you can call me Rachmi or Mimi or even Rach. Most people misspelled my name, sometimes they write it Rahmi which is more common from where I come from, Indonesia. If you do it, I don’t mind at all or even if you write Rashmi, which is Indian name with way different meaning, don’t worry I don’t mind either since it has a pretty meaning, a ray of light.

I Love to read, any kind of genre but rarely read self-inspirational book. I don’t think I’m eager to spend my money to read what people thought best for me. I spent my childhood with detective-mystery kind of stories then fall in love with fantasy but since joined Goodreads a couple years ago, I ‘m quite addicted to YA/NA books.

Some of my favorite authors are JRR Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Agatha Christie, Paolo Coelho, Robert Harris, Khaled Hosseini, Suzzane Collins, Julie Kagawa, Colleen Hoover, Cynthia Hand, Chelsea Fine.

In case you’re wondering, my blog name is inspired by JRR Tolkien poetry from The Lord of The Ring: The Fellowship of The Rings.

“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”

― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

  1. My name is David Meredith and I very recently came across your book blog. I have just released a novel – The Reflections of Queen Snow White – on Amazon.com in the Kindle Store this past October and would be happy to send you a complimentary copy if you would be interested in reviewing it. I have included the dust cover synopsis below. If you are interested, just reply to this e-mail and I will happily send you your free copy right away. Thank you for your time and I look forward to your response!

    What happens when “happily ever after” has come and gone?
    On the eve of her only daughter, Princess Raven’s wedding, an aging Snow White finds it impossible to share in the joyous spirit of the occasion. The ceremony itself promises to be the most glamorous social event of the decade. Snow White’s castle has been meticulously scrubbed, polished and opulently decorated for the celebration. It is already nearly bursting with jubilant guests and merry well-wishers. Prince Edel, Raven’s fiancé, is a fine man from a neighboring kingdom and Snow White’s own domain is prosperous and at peace. Things could not be better, in fact, except for one thing:
    The king is dead.
    The queen has been in a moribund state of hopeless depression for over a year with no end in sight. It is only when, in a fit of bitter despair, she seeks solitude in the vastness of her own sprawling castle and climbs a long disused and forgotten tower stair that she comes face to face with herself in the very same magic mirror used by her stepmother of old.
    It promises her respite in its shimmering depths, but can Snow White trust a device that was so precious to a woman who sought to cause her such irreparable harm? Can she confront the demons of her own difficult past to discover a better future for herself and her family? And finally, can she release her soul-crushing grief and suffocating loneliness to once again discover what “happily ever after” really means?
    Only time will tell as she wrestles with her past and is forced to confront The Reflections of Queen Snow White.
