Top Ten Tuesday: Facts About Me!

Hey everyone! Today is Tuesday and that means it’s time for another great Top Ten Tuesday’s. This meme is hosted by the wonderful and talented people @ The Broke and the Bookish! You definitely need to check them out if you haven’t already. This week’s topic is a bit different. It’s:

Ten Facts About Me (bookish or just general about you facts or ten facts about you as a blogger…whatever you want)

I think I’m going to do Ten General Facts About Me. It will float around topics depending on what I can think of. Here we go!!


Ten Facts About Me:

  1. I have two cats!

Their names are Trouble and Ali and they are sisters. They’re both tabby cats.

Ali is on the left and Trouble is on the right


2. I am obsessed with ice cream

I am one of those people who loves ice cream a little too much. I eat it no matter how cold it is. Call me crazy but that’s how I’ve always been.


3. I started reading chapter books in 1st grade

While others were struggling with the picture books, I was already reading my first chapter book. I remember it was a Junie B Jones book. Since then, I’ve loved reading.


4. My TV show obsessions are:

Right now I’m loving the show Bones. It’s a mystery/forensics/crime solving type of show. I love the characters and how they always get themselves involved in one crime or another. I also love the reality show Big Brother. It’s a show where 16 people live in a house away from the outside world. They compete in competitions and try to work towards half a million dollars. Big Brother is full of tons of drama. These are my main two obsessions right now.


5. I’ve never been out of the country 

A dream of mine is to get out of the country and explore. I’d love to at least go to London and Ireland. For now, I’m just staying in the United States


6.  I’m really particular about what books I read

As I talked about in one of my Friendly Discussion Friday posts, I am very particular about what I read. I look at the cover, book length and writing style. These books go through a strict survey before they are proven worthy


7. I don’t have an actual TBR pile

Unlike most book bloggers, I don’t have an actual TBR. I just pick books up at the library when they seem interesting.


8. I don’t plan out my blog posts.

I don’t really plan my posts out at all. I only do if it’s a Get In The Know (Wrap up) or a Q&A. Basically anything super important. Otherwise, I just sit down and start typing whatever comes to mind.


9. I’ve met one author.

The only author I’ve met was Erin Hunter, the author of the Warriors, Seekers and Survivors series. Waiting in line for over an hour was totally worth it. That was when I learned that Erin Hunter is not one but six different people under one name. The one I met was named Gillian Phillips.

10. I also love writing

This blog seems to be only about reading but I love writing too. I want to be an author or journalist and love doing writing assignments at school. Writing comes easy to me.
 

That’s a wrap! Do you relate to any of these facts? Let me know!

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for next week’s Top Ten Tuesday!

The Desert Island Book Tag!

Hey everyone! It’s your lucky day. You get a WWW Wednesday and a book tag all in one day! This is a quick tag that I thought would be perfect to do today. I was unofficially tagged  by the wonderful My Tiny Obsessions. You definitely need to check out her book, music, travel and more filled blog if you haven’t already. Thank you! Without further ado, here we go!

Desert Island


Water: A Book You Can Simply Cannot Live Without.

That would have to be all my books obviously XD

Okay, I’ll answer this seriously. I would have to say Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. This book changed my life. It started my love for Harry Potter and made me realize I am a Weasley. Without it, I wouldn’t be a Potterhead 😀


Food: A Book That Is a Close Second On Your Favorites List.

That would have to be Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell. This book got me hooked on contemporary books. It also gave me another author to love and cherish 😀


Shelter: A Book That Makes You Feel At Home And Safe.

Anything fantasy, humor, adventure or contemporary!


Flare Gun: A Book You Would Recommend To Someone Who Doesn’t Read.

I honestly don’t know. The Harry Potter series would probably be good since it’s a pretty simple read that draws you in.


Matchsticks: A Book That Warms Your Heart.

That would have to be Simon v.s. The Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli. Simon and Blue’s relationship warmed my heart throughout the whole book. They’re just so adorable 🙂


Compass: A Book That Directed You Towards Your Love of Reading.

That would have to be the first chapter book I ever read. That would be Junie B Jones Is Captain Field Day by Barbara Park. It really set off my love for reading.


I’m going to tag EVERYONE who wants to do this tag!


That’s a wrap! This was a short but sweet book tag.

Thanks for reading and stay tuned for more book tags!
