Welcome to (un)Conventional Bookviews! If you are here, it means you are wondering who this Lexxie person is, and you want to find out some more, right? I am a forty-something mom of four, I have a Bachelor’s degree in English language and literature, and in general linguistics, as well as a Master’s degree in English language and literature. I am an English foreign language teacher and a world traveler. Originally from Norway, I live in Switzerland with my husband, our children, and our two dachshunds. I started (un)Conventional Bookviews on June 2nd 2012 to have another way to share my love of books with other booklovers. I review based on the emotions a book brought me – this might seem a little strange, but to me it is logical.
I am pretty much an omnivore when it comes to books and reading, although I prefer to read fiction. I am not too particular about the genres, especially since I started blogging. I love reading a story where the world-building is making me feel like I am visiting a far-away place, and this can happen both in contemporary novels, fantasy, paranormal stories, dystopia and others. It’s also quite important to me that there is character development – if the characters don’t learn anything at all from their mistakes, I probably won’t really enjoy reading about them. However, if they show some growth, there’s a big chance I’m going to love them!

– if you are an author and you would like for me to review your book, please check out my review policy + ratings page – and also please note that just e-mailing me an e-copy of your work does not mean I will agree to read and review it, and that due to my review policy being very clear, I do not answer unsolicited e-mails about ARCs.
