IMG_20120609_173743My real name is Cindy but have been browsing the internet as Tynga for almost 10 years now. I am a 27 years old French Canadian from Montreal and I work as a lab technician in an hospital specialized in heart disease, surgery and transplant.

I am a new mother of the most amazing (although insomniac) babyIMG_00000237 girl in the world. We live with daddy and our two cats.

I have multiple passions, obviously books are very high on the list. I am also a huge hockey fan (Go HABS Go!) and I love arts, may it be photography, drawing, painting or messing around on Photoshop.

If you’ve been following my blog a little while, you already know that I read almost exclusively books of the Paranormal genre and YA Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy are my favourites =) I recently started reading Dystopian and Steampunk though and I’m loving it!

If there’s anything you’d like to know about me, just ask in the comments!


Wanna visit my bookshelves? Here’s a virtual tour!

    Your bookshelves are so pretty, and I’m pretty sure the Canadiens have one of the best nicknames in hockey, and I get jealous your team has Yannick Weber..

  2. Moonlight Gleam

  3. cat

    Yay an About Me post. 😉 It’s about time, young lady!

    I was just thinking the other day that we need to organize a Montreal Book Blogger outing! What do you think?

    Don’t worry, it’s not too late for an “about me” post – as they say, better late than never!

    For some very weird reason, I thought you lived in Trois-Rivières, not Montreal. Now where did I get that idea? Have you lived there before, or am I just completely loosing my mind? (probably that yes, lol)

  5. Tynga

    @Kay I have no idea where you got the idea lol but my family comes from this area actually. Shawinigan & Lac-aux-sables to be exact ^^
    I’ve never lived there though

  6. FurryReaders

    I haven’t been back to your blog in quite awhile and was glad to see your ‘about me’. Loved your video book tour and seeing one of your cats. You are right, you have lovely bookshelves. Where did you get them? You certainly will be needing more.

    I am curious on how you decide what books you keep? Or do you basically keep every book you read? Do you prefer to read in French or English?

    Congratulations and blessings for your upcoming marriage!

    @Furry thank you =) My shelves are from IKEA, it’s part of the Billy collection and you have to buy the shelf and the doors separately.

    I used to keep every book I read, but I decided to let go of the books I didn’t like all that much to make more room. And I definitely prefer reading in English. In fact, Twilight is the only series I’ve read in French. English books are WAY cheaper, release faster, and you are sure you loose nothing in the translation ^^

  8. FurryReaders

    Thanks, Tynga for the response. I like your shelves because our cats wouldn’t be able to get onto them and maybe reduce the never ending fur (hence our nickname ha-ha).

  9. The Book Blondes

    Hi Tynga, I don’t have much to say but I’ve been hanging around reading your posts and being jealous of your book shelves haha. I just have to say-I love your eye color!

  10. Marie-Michel

    Hello, first of all I just wanted to say that I really like your blog!Also Tynga, I was wondering if you could suggest me some bookstores in Montreal. I’ll visit Montreal next year and I would like to buy a few books while I’m there.
