Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. This week’s theme is facts about me so I’m going to share ten bookish facts about myself.
1. I am a Ravenclaw. The first time I did the Pottermore quiz, I was sorted into Hufflepuff but every time I’ve taken the quiz since then, I’ve gotten Ravenclaw.
2. I can only read one book at a time. When there’s more than one book that I have to read, I get really confused and just end up reading one after the other anyway. The only exception I make to this is if I’m reading a short story collection. But even then, I have to finish each short story before moving on to reading something else.
3. I’ve recently started getting into reading more comics and graphic novels. My favourite one that I’ve read so far is Alex + Ada by Jonathan Luna and Sarah Vaughn.
4. Even though I’ve only recently started reading comics and graphic novels, I’ve been reading manga since I was about 13. The first manga I ever read was probably Fruits Basket but my favourite manga/anime/live action movie is Rurouni Kenshin.
5. I have a huge bookmark obsession, especially the magnetic bookmarks from HappyHelloArt. I also have a huge stack of the Book Depository bookmarks too.
6. I’ve recently started making my own watercolour bookmarks after rediscovering my watercolour supplies from back when I did art classes.
7. I own about 700 books (this is a pure estimate)… and I’d like to say that I’ve probably read about 500 of them but I’m pretty sure that’s not true at all. In my whole lifetime, I’m guessing that I’ve probably read about 700-800 books.
8. My favourite series besides Harry Potter is The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, followed very closely by The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare.
9. My favourite YA genre is contemporary and I have endless YA contemporary recommendations. My favourite adult fiction genre is historical literary fiction.
10. The authors who I most want to meet right now are Anthony Doerr (author of my favourite book ever, All the Light We Cannot See), Heather Demetrios (author of my favourite book so far in 2016, I’ll Meet You There), Marissa Meyer (author of my favourite series, The Lunar Chronicles), and Rainbow Rowell (author of some of my favourite books including Carry On).
