7 Facts About Me!

1. K-Dramas. I love k-dramas even though they’ll probably be the death of me. I’ve also come to realize that k-dramas have a few similarities to books… And I’m going to name two of the big ones here.

  • Love Triangles. I. Can’t. Even. WHY. Of course k-dramas must have one of the two tropes that I absolutely cannot stand. Did I mention that in every k-drama I’ve watched so far, there’s been a love triangle? *looks distraught* *crisis over love for k-dramas and strong dislike for love triangles*

Me.
  • Slow burn romance! YAY! I love slow-burn romances in books. Love, love, love. It’s just so much more realistic. Also, when the characters finally get together it feels so great because you waited so long.
    • Except with k-dramas? See, something you should know about k-dramas is basically everything is taken to the extreme. And let me just say: THE PAIN FROM WAITING SO LONG FOR CHARACTERS TO GET TOGETHER IS REAL.
      • This is mainly because the main characters are absolutely OBLIVIOUS to their feelings for each other and because of that darn second lead who completes every love triangle in a k-drama. Grrr.
      • Let me give you an idea what it’s like. Each episode is around an hour. It takes 10 episodes for the characters to finally kiss! 10 EPISODES of looks, jealousy, almost kisses, hugs, and awkward moments. *bangs head against table*

I guarantee you. This took a billion episodes to happen.

2. I love kpop, too! Okay, so this post is turning out to be just an ode to my love for kdramas and kpop. Yeah.

Also me.

3. I love writing almost as much as I love reading. Do I seem more like a normal person now? Heh. Heh.

4. I actually quite like French music! I like music in any language. 🙂

5. Not too much of a fan of regular pop music nowadays. It saddens me what a lot of these songs are about. However, there are still a few pop songs out there that give me hope!

6. When I was younger I used to carry giant stacks of books around the house every day to read. No joke.

7. I tried to learn calligraphy at one point. Not sure if I succeeded or not. Hm.

photogrid_1476365612975

3 Things About Me

  1. I love choker necklaces.
  2. I really want to try figure skating (even though it’s too late for me to become a competitive figure skater).
  3. I recently started becoming obsessed with anime. (Anyone have any recommendations?)

Enni’s Questions

1. If you could be any book character, who would you want to be?

This is such a hard question. Um… Okay. I know this is obvious and a lot of people would choose this character, but Hermione Granger. I would love to be a witch and it would be great to have her sharp wits/intelligence. Or, a less obvious answer, Ananna from The Assassin’s Curse. She’s super badass, kind of like Celaena Sardothien because Ananna has magic too, except less chance of being killed. (Well, she may have an assassin after her, but you get what I mean. Being Celaena would be way too stressful. And too many guys after her. How in the world would I choose?)

2. What book are you planning to buy next?

I am trying not to buy any books for now. Hardcovers are just so expensive. But, if I were to buy a book next, I would buy Gemina by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. Thank goodness my library has it though, so I can still read it. 😉

3. What is your favorite reading spot?

My bed. There is nothing better than lying on my bed, reading a good book. So comfy. But, if I were to drink hot cocoa or tea while reading, then the couch. Still comfortable (maybe not as soft as my bed), but sufficient if I want to eat a snack, too.

4. Which character would you choose to be your boy-/girlfriend?

If I were to choose a fictional character as my boyfriend, I would choose Dorian Havilliard. He’s just a great character. And, he loves reading. And has a giant library. I would have to explore his library. Plus, I think he’s really sweet. 🙂 ❤

5. What is the most times you’ve read one book?

Eleven. Or twelve. Or was it fifteen? I can’t remember. Somewhere around there. One summer I went on vacation and brought the middle-grade novel Keeper of the Lost Cities by Shannon Messenger (you guys should definitely read it) with me. As soon as I start reading, I couldn’t put it down. When I finished, I started it all over again. It was basically the only book I brought with me, so I just kept reading it over and over. I loved it.

6. Do you think that superheroes should wear a cloak?

No. I actually think superheroes wearing cloaks are a bit cliché (no offense, Superman, Batman, etc.) and kind of unnecessary. How does wearing a cloak aid a superhero in any way in saving the world?  There are so many “superheroes” in this world who don’t wear cloaks and do good deeds just like the classic superheroes. (Sorry for getting a bit deep there 😅 .)

Best Post

If we’re talking about my best post in terms of popularity, then My Reading and Blogging Goals for 2017. If we’re talking about my best post as in my favorite post, then My Top 10 Most Anticipated Reads of 2017 (I thought that one was the most fun to write, so far).

My Questions

3. How many books did you read in 2016?

4. What type of music do you listen to, and what song(s) is/are your favorite? 

5. Weird Question: If your hair could be any color, what color would you choose (minus the usual black, brown, or blond, and shades of those colors)? You can choose a mix of different colors, too! (Personally, I would love plum purple and silver hair, though I don’t think I’d dye my hair those colors in real life—I’m too much of a wimp.) 😛 😀

Extra fun fact about me: I love listening to music. You can find me with my earbuds in listening to music practically anywhere. Without music, I feel kind of empty. It provides solace. ♪ ♪ ♫ ♫

Anyone else feel this way about music? 

Again, I’m so happy about the nomination. I’m thrilled to see my blog developing, and definitely plan on developing it further this year!
