Random stuff about me:
I secretly like graphic novels. I am a chocoholic. I dance sober on tables.
I really want to write a proper book one day.
I am a bit of a Francophile. But I still had to look up what the proper word was!
I like designing houses. This may be the reason for my Sims addiction.
I work at Waterstones the bookshop, and spend most of my working hours lurking in the children's section, so I consider myself pretty learned in the world of YA literature.
Things that inspire me:
Harry Potter! Final Fantasy, THE HUNGER GAMES, Lord of the Rings, Narnia, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Charmed, Star Wars (I am a self-confessed geek) several animes/mangas, in particular Fushigi Yugi, Fullmetal Alchemist and Fruit's Basket. Fairy tales and classic mythology, unsolved cases, walks in the woods, travelling and seeing new places, blurbs from books I'll never read, any kind of art work, browsing deviantart.com...Also, really random fantasy and sci-fi novels and movies.
Favourite authors: (this could take a while)
J.K Rowling, C.S Lewis, Meg Cabot, Shakespeare, Jane Austen, Eva Ibbotson, Anthony Horowitz, David Eddings, Eva Ibbotson, James Patterson, Cassandra Clare, Sarah Rees Brennan, Suzanne Collins. If you can't find one in there you like, I have to wonder if you ever read.
Fantasy, sci-fi, action, romance, comedy, mystery, adventure, drama, classic- am clearly not fussy. Applies to books and movies, I like both!
People who like my work and all the reviews I get! I love their input to my stories and how they're not afraid to criticise/make suggestions/point out errors.
I love people who aren't afraid to be themselves, and those that stand up for themselves, their beliefs and other people, even when they're terrified. I call them the Xander-Nevilles of the world, whom I appreciate better than the hero counterparts and the fearless leaders of their relevant series.
(In no order)
Edward/Winry- Fullmetal Alchemist
PS: I do oneshot requests for these pairings. Ask if you're interested!
At the moment, I am currently obsessed with Maggie Stiefvater's "Shiver" and "Linger"- they are such beautifully written books and I'm in love with the relationship they portray. I'm also following ANYTHING by Cassandra Clare and am eagerly awaiting the next in Sarah Rees Brennan's Demons series. They are both fantastic writers and soooo funny it's unreal.
I just finished The Hunger Games trilogy. I'm still in a state of shock. I'm not sure I'll ever recover. They were THAT good.
I've also finally got around to uploading the start of my real, work in progress novel. It's now on. You have no idea how much I would appreciate feedback on this.
