I don't know how, or why, you ended up here, but I will try to make your stay as enjoyable (or at least, less painful) as possible.
Somethings about me:
I'm a sixteen-year-old girl who loves to read and write (shocking, I know).
Personality-wise? This is where I draw a blank. Don't get me wrong, I DO have one, it's just that I'm no good at describing it. Let's see... In real life, my quietness is probably what I'm known for, if anything. I've been told I have a dry sense of humor. I suppose I'm also one of those people who are quiet and don't say much at all, but when you get to know me awhile, I don't shut up. Though not many people have told me so (to my knowledge), I can be annoying. Honestly, I annoy myself sometimes.
Now for books:
I don't really know. I read nearly anything, I suppose. Mostly, I read fiction, though I have lately branched into nonfiction books. I don't have any specific topics I read on, exactly. Just some random ones that interest me. For instance, I liked researching and speculating on the Carroll myth (though I didn't necessarily believe it.) That being said, my favorite nonfiction books are Funny in Farsi and Three Cups of Tea.
Fiction...Hmmm... Like I said, I read nearly anything. I love classical children's stories. In fact, pretty much most of my favorite classics are children's stories. The Anne of Green Gables series, the works of Frances Hodgson Burnett, the works of Lewis Carroll, Heidi... You get the idea. Children's classics can also be associated with fairytales, which brings me to my other reading prefference. I love fairy tale retellings. I don't know why, I just do. Maybe it's the fact that characters are more developed, plots more explored and expanded. Prince Charming doesn't just ride in at the last minute and rescue the poor, pitiful princess, whom he falls in love with on sight and are supposedly happily married and live happily ever after. In a well written fairy tale retelling, the prince and princess have personalities, their love is more believable, and there's more plot to it. Not that that I hate fairy tales, especially the originals (not the Disneyfied versions, though those are good for nostalgia), I mostly just like expanding on them, you know? My favorite would have to be East by Edith Pattou. I loved that book before I knew it was based on a fairy tale, but the point still stands. When I did find out it was based on East of the Sun and West of the Moon, it eventually led me to another book, Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow, which is good, too. I also like the work of other authors like Shannon Hale and Gail Carson Levine.
I guess I lean more towards fantasy.
Other favorite books:
The Book Thief
The Chronicles of Prydain
The Books of Ember
The Phantom of the Opera
Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life
The Giver trilogy
The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness
On writing, I mostly do original work. I really don't do much fanfiction, so you won't see new things very often. I mainly lurk around, favoriting stories I like and leaving an occational review.
That being said, I hope you made sense of all of that, and thanks for visiting. Feel free to look at the stuff I have here. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask me!
