Hey people of the internet! My name's Alexandra or just Alex if you slur your words because let's face it, Alexandra is a mouthful. I hail from the mitten, Michigan for anyone who doesn't get that comparison. I'm 18 years old in my second year of college with the credit status of a junior (a lot to take in, I know). I'm studying to be a Mechanical Engineer and will probably get a minor in German so I can work for a fancy schmancy car company like Volkswagen or Audi.

(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: 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.]
