(Arguably) Important things to know about me:
- Reading, for me, is an addiction. I can't go a day without it.
- Favorite quote: "She is too fond of books, and it has turned her brain." -Louisa May Alcott
- I'm left-handed (YAY LEFTIES!) but I'm also very ambidextrous.
- I attempt to write in my spare time. (Life as an Engineering major leaves me little spare time.)
- I am insanely good at math. I earned almost perfect grades (meaning 100%) in Calculus 1, 2, and 3 before I even turned 18.
- I graduated high school when I was 16.
- Not only can I write with my right hand (see above ambidextrousness), but I can also write backwards in print and cursive very legibly with both hands. (Useless skill #1)
- I can find something good in every book I read.
- I played sports for most of my life (volleyball for 10 years, basketball for 12, and pole vaulting).
- I may or may not be a little bit OCD. All I'm saying is that if you leave the cabinet cracked open it will drive me crazy.
- I have a tendency to be very slow (as in stereotypical "dumb-blonde" slow).
- I also have issues enunciating when I speak because everything just flows together inonegiantbigsentenceslur.
- Finally, I can lick my elbow. It's not impossible. The Man lied to you. (Useless skill #2)
Off the top of my head, and in no particular order, some books that I loved are:
- Looking for Alaska by John Green
- The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
- Divergent and Insurgent by Veronica Roth
- Under the Never Sky and Through the Ever Night by Veronica Rossi
- Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
- Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
- Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire
- The Mortal Instruments and The Infernal Devices series by Cassie Clare
- Altered by Jennifer Rush (a fellow mitten-onian!)
I should stop myself now before I can't... But you should really read them all!
Also! As part of my New Year's resolution, I'm reviewing every single book I read in 2013 on a blog. I might be your friend if you check it out: sleepsontables.blogspot.com. Find me on Twitter too: @SleepsOnTables. [You should know that the "SleepsOnTables" thing comes from a joke about me sleeping on tables in college because they're comfier than the floors.]
