Top Ten Facts About Me and The Versatile Blogger Award

Hey everyone! The TTT topic for today is Facts About Me, so I decided to combine it with the Versatile Blogger Award, since it is also fact-based. I’m awful at listing facts about myself, and it seemed like overkill to have two different posts for basically the same thing.

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.

10 Bookish Facts About Me

  1. I’ve been reading YA books since late elementary school.
  2. I started out really into dystopian and paranormal books, but nowadays I rarely read those genres, sticking to contemporary and fantasy.
  3. I’ve met a few of my favorite authors, including Libba Bray, Brandon Sanderson, Naomi Novik, Amie Kaufman, Jay Kristoff. I turned red every time.
  4. I organize my bookshelves by order of how much I enjoyed each book/series, with some special shelves depending on the genre.
  5. I love how rainbow bookshelves look, but it stresses me out to think about books I didn’t like shelved next to books I loved.
  6. My mom is really awesome and she’ll read the YA books that I tell her to. Then we can fangirl together and it’s great.
  7. I can never decide if I like paperbacks or hardcovers more. Honestly, I love them both.
  8. I break the spine of basically every paperback I read, and I know that there are ways to prevent it, but I can’t get them to work.
  9. I never read hardcovers with the dust jacket on. It’s hard to hold and I’m afraid of wrinkling it.
  10. I LOVE rereading books, and I’ve read most of my favorite books at least two times (but probably more).

7 Non-Bookish Facts About Me

  1. I just got my drivers license.
  2. I really love working with Photoshop. Sometimes I edit photos, sometimes I follow other people’s tutorials, sometimes I just make random images, but I enjoy all of it.
  3. I enjoy basically every subject in school except science. Probably, that’s just because I’ve had pretty bad science teachers, but I also just don’t connect with the material the way that I do with math/English/history.
  4. I like most foods, except for red bell peppers, cucumbers, and anything spicy.
  5. I don’t have personal accounts for social media platforms. My bookish Twitter/Instagram is my only Twitter/Instagram.
  6. My cat is a giant ball of sass and insolence…but I love her for it.
  7. I miss my sister like crazy! She’s been at a college program for the last three weeks, and while I’m glad she’s having a fun time, I wish she was home!!!

I nominate:

There it is! Sorry some of those facts are boring…it turns out I’m a boring person, apparently. Happy Tuesday!

    • I met Libba Bray VERY briefly at the LA Festival of Books a few years ago. I turned SOOOO red and couldn’t really form sentences, but now I have signed copies of her books and it was worth it! I’d love to meet her for a longer time sometime in the future because she is a writing goddess!
      Thanks again for the nomination!

  1. You’ve shared some great facts about yourself – how lucky to meet some of your favorite authors! I’ve never thought to organize my bookshelf according to how well I liked the book – mine are in abc order, I guess that’s a little dull!

    • Thank you! I don’t remember when I decided to start organizing my bookshelves the way I do; it’s been a constant part of my life. Finding out that other people actually alphabetize their books (or organize it any other way) was kind of a shock for me when I joined the blogging community, but I’m mostly over it 😉


  2. I would so, SO turn red if I meet Brandon Sanderson. I’m not big on meeting authors but I don’t think I can resist Brandon Sanderson, haha – I really admire his magic systems and how devoted he is to his craft. 😛

    Congratulations on getting your drivers licence! I got mine aaaages ago but I haven’t driven in like 3 years, haha. I probably will need to re-learn it again since I was never that great at it.
