As I am just starting this blog, I thought it proper to present myself: I am a 19-year-old, quite short, curly-haired, cute and always-book-in-hand girl. I have a major love for literature and the English language, which is why I started this blog. I am going to be a great writer and I would also love to work in the publishing industry as much as I can.
To get started on this blog, I have a few ice-breaker questions I found on the web:
. Favourite childhood book?
Harry Potter and the prisoner of Azkaban – J. K. Rowling.
. What are you reading right now?
Game of thrones – George R. R. Martin
. What books are on your TBB list? (To Be Bought)
My TBB list is so long… It now includes 150 books, but it never grows smaller, it always grows bigger and bigger.
. Bad book habit?
Reading ahead a little bit on the same page when I get nervous about what is happening, sort of to check that everything is ok.
. Do you have an e-reader?
Nope. My eyes get tired REALLY easily from reading just books, so if I am in front of screens for long periods of time, my eyeballs will probably dry up and fall.
. Do you prefer to read one book at a time or several at once?
I can’t stand reading more than one book at a time, usually because I get mixed up and confuse some characters… Also, because I have this feeling that I haven’t and MUST finish something before starting something else.
. Favourite book you’ve read this year?
Jane Eyre – Charlotte Brontë.
. Can you read on the bus?
Of course! Actually, while I’m on university and working, travelling by bus is pretty much all the time I have for reading.
. Favourite place to read?
My bedroom, sitting on my bed.
. What is your policy on book lending?
I hate lending my books (unless it’s to my mom, grandma or boyfriend, in which case I love it), because I take GREAT care of them and know my friends are not as obsessive as I am, but I’ll probably lend almost any book to my friends so that they don’t get angry at me… I know, lame : P
. Favourite genre?
Probably… Fantasy. I love magic ♥
. Most intimidating book you’ve ever read?
David Copperfield – Charles Dickens. It’s just really really long, took me some months to finish it.
. Favourite poet?
Rubén Darío. And I also have a favourite poem, by him! “Sonatina”.
. What book are you planning on reading next?
Probably, Evernight, by Claudia Gray. Though if I get too pumped up about Game of thrones, I’ll just jump into the second book of the series: A clash of kings.
