After blogging for a year I felt it was necessary to update my “About the Blogger” section because so much has changed within the last year. I never thought I would have lasted more than a year after several failed attempts before this blog. I am so happy that I have continued blogging and reading.
For those of you who are new followers or maybe this is just your first time reading this, I’m Sarah. I’m 22 years old and currently a full time college student. My major is Communications but I really need to change it to undecided because I change majors almost every year (how am I supposed to choose just ONE thing to do for the rest of my life, what if I want to do more?). I’ve been reconsidering Zoology/Animal Biology and Wildlife Biology because those were two majors I looked into when I was in high school. I also work at a hospital part time in the nutrition department. Between school and work I don’t get much time to myself to read and blog so lately the reviews I have been posting are less and less. It kills me that I cannot post 3-4 reviews a week like I was before but I am really trying to stay on top of it while still maintaining good grades.
I mainly read young adult fiction. Every now and then I may see an adult book I am interested in but my bookshelves and bookcase in my room are stacked full of all young adult novels. I read all genres within young adult from contemporary, romance, thrillers, whatever. I’m not too big on fantasy though but there are a few that I have read and enjoyed. I love trilogies but have mixed feelings on series. I feel like three books is a great way to extend a story but some series are just way too long. I have a never ending (and I mean that literally) TBR list on Goodreads. There are so many books I want to read and I am so afraid I won’t have enough time to get to them all. I am total old school when it comes to reading. I prefer a physical, hard copy over a electronic copy. I love the way a new book smells and yes I will flip through the pages of a new book while sniffing it. I’m also what I feel like a lot of people would call a “closet reader”. I’m not ashamed of my love of reading but it also isn’t something many people know about me. I feel like with a lot of new people I meet, the topic of books just doesn’t come up and I also don’t feel like I need to explain myself to another person my age who thinks I am crazy for actual enjoying to read.
Other than reading I would say I am your typical 22 year old girl. I love to dance. I was a dancer growing up for 15 years, up until I graduated high school. I did competitive dance for half of that time. If you watch Dance Moms, I swear it wasn’t anywhere near as dramatic. I also was involved in a club at my school that focused on history and current political events. We participated in the yearly Model UN that American University hosted in DC. For a while I thought I would enjoy a job in politics but that definitely helped me clear that up. I also enjoy going out with my friends on the weekends, going to the beach and camping when it is warm outside, and binge watching on Netflix (current fix: Gilmore Girls). I am single, because seriously who has time for that? Maybe if I can find a low-maintenance guy (hahahahahahaha 🙂 ) who is okay with me not being the clingy type then I will see where it goes. I know most of you will probably agree but guys in the books are so much better. I feel like I have incredibly unrealistic expectations about guys IRL (in real life).
Anyways I guess that is about it. Also I want to say thank you to everyone who has followed my blog so far, shared it, commented and read my posts. It means a lot and has definitely helped me gain more confidence when it comes to posting reviews and other topics on here. It’s also great to know that I have so much in common with other YA readers out there, so thank you again and you have no idea how much it all means to me. I also want to send a HUGE thank you to everyone (especially you authors!) who have shared my posts on Twitter. The day I searched my blog’s name and saw those Tweets, my heart immediately swelled up.
