Part One: Me
I was never the type of person who could sit still in one place, not even for a second. Sometimes it was the mere twitch of my toes and other times I was running around a casino floor while my aunt chased me, half laughing (I was 5). No matter where I was or who I was with, I just couldn’t sit still.
With only one exception. Books.
Whenever I read, I became still. I could sit curled up on my couch, huddled in with pillows and blankets galore, for a straight minimum of three hours. In normal me-time, that was 12 years. In reading me-time, that was 12 seconds.
Within those 12 seconds, though, I always found a stillness within me. Like time had stopped, the world had frozen and my hands turning the page was the only movement to be heard throughout the galaxy; in those 12 seconds, I was as calm and relaxed as I could ever be.
That was the silent start to me starting a blog about books. It officially started with Harry Potter and 3rd grade but unofficially it started with the quiet movement of a heart beating, a page turning and an avid reader being born.
Part Two: The Blog & More
Part Three: Other (Random) Stuff About Me
- I mostly read and review fantasy, mystery, crime and the occasional realistic fiction.
- I love reading (obviously!), playing soccer (I’ll watch it but playing it is so much better), drawing, sculpting, blogging, writing, chocolate, rocking out to music, dance and photography.
- I DON’T like fruit, and being a popsicle in the winter.
- I am a writer who has about 60 ideas in various forms of writing (some are just ideas, some are outlined, and others are actually being written)! If anyone has a way to mind-transfer thoughts to writing, hit me up because I definitely need it lol
- My favorite book(s) is a tie between the Harry Potter series by JK Rowling and Fire by Kristin Cashore!
