Ten Random Facts About Me:
1) I have two guinea pigs names Fred and Albert Einstein and a new kitty named....nothing yet actually. Just got her yesterday.
They all have reflective eyes which stinks when taking pics. Oh well.
 2) I also have two older sisters and a younger brother and sister. I am the definition of a middle child.

3) My favorite movie is Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley and I have no idea why. I can watch it over and over though.
4) I drink my coffee really light with at least three Splenda.

5) One of my best friends is a former co-worker of mine who is 58 (don't tell her I told you her age, she'll kill me...) But she has the spirit of a teenager. 
6) My boyfriend says I have the animal spirit of a Feral Cat. You make up your own answer why.

7) I have been out of work for almost a month and a half to work on my WIP but I hardly work on it. I have no idea what I've been doing all day. It's definitely not looking for a job haha.

8) My favorite painting is Starry Night. Who doesn't love that one?

9) I didn't read Harry Potter until I was in high school. You couldn't get me to touch a book for fun younger than that.
10) I've been to Greece three times (I'm half Greek BTW.)

Questions from Chantel HER BLOG:
 Thanks for tagging me

1) How long have you been blogging?
I've been blogging for about 6 months. 

2) Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging because I found Veronica Roth's blog (author of Divergent), became obsessed with it and so decided to start my own. 

3) Favorite book and author?
Geez, this is always hard. But I would have to say Order of the Phoenix may be my favorite book ever. I never considered Rowling my favorite author though. IDK who that would be. 

4) Have you ever fancied a character from a book?
Well, Jace from TMI of course. Really like Chaol from the new Throne of Glass book.

5) What genres do you like?
I like YA fantasy, paranormal and science fiction. Only with a few exceptions do books I read not have a romance. 

6) What is your least favourite book?
 Probably Fallen by Lauren Kate. I threw it against the wall after reading it.

7) Hardback or Paperback and why?
I would say paperback because I don't like book covers. I take them off to read and they always end up damaged or lost.

8) Do you have an inspiration?
I'm inspired by a lot of young writers in the Young Adult genre like Roth (Divergent), Mafi (Shatter Me) and Maas (Throne of Glass).

9) Favourite place to read?
I like to read on my bed mostly. 

10) Ever felt like you can relate yourself to a character?
Of course! Almost all of them. That's what reading is about right?
