Hi! Kristen here :-)
As you’ve probably figured out, I’m a big lover of books and always have been. I rarely read anything outside fantasy/paranormal and science fiction because I’ve tried many genres, and those are the ones that have stuck, but I like to read a wide variety within those genres, including young adult, new adult, adult, LGBTQIA+, romance-focused, no romance, and all different subgenres. I also love self-published and indie books. My taste often runs darker, more intense, and/or quirkier than average, but sometimes I also like fluffy, light, fun reads. Mood reading is a tricky beast. But two things I almost always love to read about are flawed characters and vampires ;-) I never regret reading a book because I take something from every book I read, but I do find it a lot more fun to talk about the ones I like.
I would love to write some books of my own at some point, but for the moment I’m just brainstorming, practicing, constantly learning, and looking for fellow writers to connect with.
As for the non-reader/writer parts of me… Well, I’m a 20-something, a Ravenclaw, an INFJ, and a spoonie. My favorite color is red. I’m basically nocturnal because the night has a magic and a stillness that makes everything feel more meaningful and makes me feel more like myself. I’m ridiculously indecisive. I have six piercings in one ear even though I’m afraid of needles. I love all things gymnastics and circus because I used to do both even though I wasn’t particularly great at either. I’ve been playing (and loving) The Sims basically since it came out, but my favorite of all the versions is TS3. And my skill set includes cutting open pomegranates without slicing a single seed, quoting Disney movies, remembering far too many of my dreams when I wake up, and taking weird selfies.
Don’t hesitate to leave a comment, send a message, or friend me—I love meeting fellow readers, writers, and bloggers!
All things bookish!
Quotes, humor, reading, writing, gymnastics, circus, food, and more, all in pretty picture form!
Any random thoughts I have that fit into 280 characters.
Any random thoughts I have that don’t fit into 280 characters. Also possibly short stories, poems, and other little writerly things by yours truly (if I can stop chickening out).
