Happy Friday Everyone!!
I hope you have all had a wonderful week. It has been so freakin hot here at home, it is so hard to be productive Anyways, I thought it might be fun to give you all some fun facts about me, seeing as my blog has been going for 5 months now and a lot of you probably don’t know much about me apart from the fact that I hate 50 Shades of Grey…bleh.
I live in Brisbane, Australia
Well I have lived here for almost 4 years now and often wonder what took me so long to move here. I lived in a town called Toowoomba for most of my life and disliked living there very much. It’s not a bad town/city, I just felt claustrophobic there. Brisbane is a lovely, beautiful city and I have found the people here just as lovely.
I was into Goosebumps books as a kid
But then, who wasn’t? Everyone collected them didn’t they?
I’m a romantic at heart
I LOVE love. I actually need to read stories where there is at least some love interest, if there isn’t I am a sad panda. I love the whole kissing in the rain, slow burning then IGNITING, happily every after stories. It’s a bit tragic, but I grew up watching Pretty Woman repeatedly (that was my sisters fault, not mine!) so what more can you expect?!?
I stay away from stories where an animal may potentially die
This is the same for books and movies. I even get sad when the dog dies in the Conjuring!! I can’t do it, I actually get more sad about the animals than people. Marley and Me is definitely the worst for it, I made a massive mistake watching that movie and one I won’t be making again!!
I have a book-buying addiction
One I think a lot of you will understand. Why do we go and buy 10 books when we know we can only read 1 book at a time? Why?!? I think part of my buys a whole heap of books because I want a library like Belle’s.
I’m not a fan of crime books
I find them too intense and suspenseful, I hate having to wait to the end to find out who the perpetrator is. I find the legal stuff a bit boring. If, on the other hand, the perpetrator is a ghost or something paranormal, I may be more inclined to read it.
My favourite genre is fantasy
I find the real world overwhelming, so why would I want to read real-life stuff? I love being taken away to another world with fae, angels and devils, time-travelling, dragons. The real-world doesn’t have these things which makes me super sad, so I find reading fulfils this wish.
I am a walking library
I feel my job in life is to ensure that all of my friends are reading books. I am constantly giving them new books to read and I generally pester them while they are reading them because I want to know if they love the books I have rec’d just as much as I did. I admit, I was a bit mean with Throne of Glass. I got my friends to read that series because I didn’t want to be alone in my misery of waiting for a year, not knowing what is going to happen. Sorry guys, lol.
Ok no judgement please (you probably will anyway lol) but I am a MASSIVE Miley fan. I LOVE HER!!!! I love her music, her voice and everything she stands for. Miley cops a lot of flack, and yes some of this is her doing. But she stands up for animals, is a big advocate for LGBTQIA and homeless people and is a feminist. Miley doesn’t care about album sales or her image when discussing controversial topics, she is real and I absolutely love that.
Well I hope you liked my fun facts! Do you have any of the above in common? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
