In an effort to make new friends/gain followers, I thought I’d introduce myself in a post.
My name is Carolina. I am twenty years old and attend university. I plan on getting my degree in English soon. I’m not sure quite just yet what I plan to do with that degree, but I do know I want to write and publish books.
I love reading. When someone asks me what my favorite hobby is, the first things that comes to mind 100% of the time is reading. This love for books started when I was in the first grade. My teacher at the time took us all to the public library. It was my first time in a library and the rest was history. I think it’s pretty safe to say I visit the public library/campus library at least twice a week.
Another favorite hobby of mine is buying books. There’s a small used bookstore just outside the library that I stop by when I go to the library. I’d say I buy at least three books per visit. My bookshelf is currently at capacity. I don’t know what’ll happen to new books that I adopt, but I’ll save that problem for a later day.
I decided to name my blog ‘I Am A Bibliophile’ because that’s simply what I am. I eat, sleep and breathe books. What I post will mainly consist of
- random book/writing musings
- reviews on future books I read
- photos of beautiful books/bookshelf I stumble upon
- my bucket list (once it’s done)
- me completing my Ultimate Reading List (which I will post eventually)
Some of my favorite authors are Neil Gaiman, Robert Cormier, Robin McKinely, Oscar Wilde and J.K. Rowling, just to name a few.
Also, I’m a budding book hoarder, technology addict, worshipper of fiction, dreamer, lover and a fighter, believer of all things right and fair, and a bit neurotic.
I don’t only enjoy books, I also listen to music, bake on occasion, watch some tv, and I definitely watch movies.
Some of my favorite bands are Motion City Soundtrack, Nightmare of You, Eisley, Meg & Dia, Pet Lions, Say Anything, Albert Hammond Jr, Florence and the Machine, Ace Enders and Death Cab for Cutie.
A list of my favorite movies will come later. Trust me, it will be extensive.
So that’s about it. I’d love to get new followers to this blog. I’d love to talk/interact with others. Also, I’m a follow back champion. That is all.
