Saturday, November 3, 2012
So I really don't have time to post today, since I've been super busy lately with Early Action stuff and so have had no time whatsoever to do stuff.

But it feels too weird to not have a post at all, so I figured I could post something, right?

But feel free not to read it, cause seriously, it is random.

Like, maybe you want to know about me. So I thought I could tell you ten random facts about me, since that doesn't take long at all.

  1. I won't leave my house without makeup on. My customary makeup routine is concealer, foundation, black eyeliner, and mascara.
  2. My goal is to be an architect. I also plan on opening my own architecture firm eventually.
  3. I'm a complete and hopeless romantic. I also don't put up with instalove. Mostly I just ship pretty much everyone.
  4. I cannot stand the sight of blood at all, but I absolutely completely love reading horror. It's one of my favorite genres.
  5. I love David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch. I also love Doctor Who and Sherlock. They just kind of make my life complete in so many ways. xxxx
  6. I don't read too many classics, but I love The Great Gatsby and Pride and Prejudice. If I meet either F. Scott Fitzgerald or Jane Austen in heaven I will probably die all over again.
  7. I'm a total Once Upon a Time addict. Hook is my new favorite character for obvious reasons. There's about a thousand other TV shows that I love but it would take too long to mention them all.
  8. I only like using glassware. Plastic dishware drives me crazy. Hate the stuff.
  9. My color, in classic girly-girl fashion, is pink. I also have a thing for glitter and sparkles. Glitter makes everything better.
  10. Like for many others, music is my escape. I love love love John Mayer and Taylor Swift. Obviously there are others I heart but if I start to mention any more I'll end up mentioning them all.
That's today's post! Isn't it fantabulous?! Oh, you know it is. Don't even lie.

I was going to conclude this post with that but now I feel like doing yet another giveaway, even though I feel like I've been doing a lot and I have EIGHT blogoversary giveaways coming up starting tomorrow!

You know what to do. Read my Giveaways page. Then enter. Don't kill anyone. Simple.

Since today's post is about me, I think I'll give away books off my own TBR shelf. (This includes my wishlist, too.) There'll be five winners who can each choose one book, just for fun!

Well, good luck dears. And thanks for putting up with me and my weirdness. I love you guys. xx


And don't forget: my blogoversary starts tomorrow! There will be eight giveaways in total over the spanse of a week! xxxxxxx


  1. Thanks for this giveaway! I love YA books and mostly my Mom gets irritated with me because she thinks that I'm supposed to be "in love" with numbers instead of books due to the fact that I'm an engineering student. I just can't seem to make her realize that I love both things. Fortunately I think she's trying to accept things now.

    -Riz B.

  2. OMG I love Sherlock too!! I mean, I don't really have a thing for detectives, but I don't know why, on the show, he's just so sexy! I don't know why I love him so much, but I just do!! And his eyes.... they're like this green-grey, teal sort of thing going on...
    And I love Taylor Swift too... Red's replay button is currently being bashed by me ;)
    Thanks for the giveaway, it looks awesome :)

    All the best!

  11. Something random about myself? Mmh, I'm not sure if this counts, but my little man just turned 4 and he already beats my butt at playing Angry Bird. *lol* Also, I might be the slightest bit obsessed with the number six...

    Thanks so much for yet another awesome giveaway!!! :)

  13. I collect soda can tabs (the thingies they put at the top so you can open the can). No joke lol. I even have this thing that's supposed to hold like, pennies or something, but I put the soda tabs in them. It's an elephant with an upright trunk. It's huge. And has lots of tabs in it. Anyway. Thank you for the cute post and giveaway!

  14. I love your fun facts! It's always cool to learn stuff about the person behind the blog, you know? Something weird about me...I'm a total wuss and I scare really easily, and yet my favourite shows are things like Buffy, Angel, and Supernatural, which are all about things that go bump in the night. Go figure!
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

  15. Thanks for sharing your random facts with us! Something weird/random about me? I am a huge lover of animals/creatures. I tend to get overly emotional about them (any of them) coming to harm. I accidentally hit a raccoon once while driving and proceeded to cry hysterically about it for an hour asking my husband if he (the raccoon) knew that I didn't mean to hit it and that I was sorry. Also, I cried when my cat cat a mouse and was trying to kill him (even though it was inside our house) and I made my husband take it outside and let him go. I can't help it - I just have a huge soft spot for them!

    1. Oops - I meant when my cat CAUGHT a mouse!

  16. Here's some random facts about myself:

    1. I'm obsessed with rainbows! XD
    2. I'm a bookaholic
    3. I'm really weird
    4. I like to say that I am an alien from the planet Trablablabla (mostly because I am)
    5. I think life would suck without music, books, and color
    6. I'm a vegetarian
    7. I have no life
    8. I like Griled Cheese Sandwhiches and Chocolate Milk
    9. I collect movie ticket stubs, sharpies, slinkies, crayons, colored pencils, pens, and pencils
    10.I like to name my electronic devices.
    11. My favorite TV show is Doctor Who
    12. Bow-ties are cool
    13. My ultimate dream in life is to get superpowers
    14. I would probably die without pasta
    15. I may have a minor obsession with cheese...

  17. Something random and weird about myself.. I hold on to Christmas biscuit tins with particularly pretty designs to reuse in later years. I now have two, a McVities one with a nice Dickensian design, and a Tesco shortbread one with a cute little cartoony Scotty dog. I love the things! Plus, buying your own biscuits is always better :)

  18. Something weird about me? I am OBSESSED with mustard. Extra mustard on EVERYTHING. If I can have mustard, I will have mustard. :)

  19. I hate to cook but I have to feed my family. I am such a bad cook that our African Gray, Piglet (who we no longer own), imitated the sound of the smoke alarm when I walked into the kitchen...he didn't make the sound for anyone else. In case you aren't familar with African Grays, they only make sounds they hear on a regular basis...

  20. Hmmm...something random, weird, or interesting about myself.

    This could be a 3-in-1 answer: I sleep way better if I've read before bed.

    Thanks for the giveaway! I looked at your shelf and I think I would either choose The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan, Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George, Defiance by C.J. Redwine, or Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren. You have a lot of good choices!

  21. I loved this random post but I'm sure you knew I would. ^.^ Something interesting about myself...that's hard. o.o I got my "frodo" nickname as it was part of "frodoscompanion" which is a name I used in a chat room a long time ago. People started using that more often than my real name so it has stuck ever since. At the time and for the first few years I was using that nickname I spoke Elvish. *nerd* Oh and I paint LotR miniatures. I'm actually relatively good at it. That's enough randomness about me I think!


  22. I see where you are going with this - you just want to catch me reading blogs and entering giveaways when I am supposed to be writing for my NaNoWriMo LOL Please don't tell on me. I am doing this and so nervous, just had to hop over for some fun ;=D

  23. I also love Once Upon A Time and am really thinking Captain Hook is the highlight of the season this year.

    Random thought - I am drowning in puppies! My dog that we rescued was thought to be fixed but she was pregnant and had 6 puppies.

  24. 1. I am a huge Doctor Who fan! I love the show so much I even have many of the sonic screwdrivers and other replicas from the show, including my most favorite thing of all the Tardis. :)
    2. I also refuse to leave the house without make up on and if I know I have company coming over I have to have it on. I've even excused myself so I could slip into my bedroom to put my make up on when I've had people to just show up.
    3. I love horror everything! Books, movies you name it and I am first in line.
    4. Pink and all things glitter and sparkly are my best friends but I love dark gloomy things just as much.

    - Krystal })i({

  25. 1.) I have this weird tendency to be completely okay with the sight of real blood but am disturbed by the sight of fake blood o.O I have no idea what is wrong with me. Everyone I know thinks its the weirdest thing ever.
    2.) I'm a huge Supernatural fan and so is my little sister and mother so every week its own we gather around to watch it and squeal like little fan girls. Its really a funny sight to see. My brother recorded us one week to show us how we act. It was hilarious.

  26. I went to my first ever book signing today and was in line for SEVEN HOURS!!! but I got to meet Cassandra Clare who is an awesome person so it was worth it!!! Thanks so much for the giveaway!! :D

  27. Something random and/or weird about meself?

    Doctor Who, Merlin, and Sherlock are my very favourite tv shows, the library is one of my favourite places to be, I've been obsessed with LOTR since I saw the movie poster when I was 5 (that's a decade long obsession! Wow...), I love white hot chocolate (and it's even better when there's mint in it), and I can't stand people who think reading is boring.

    Oh, and I also think David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch are utterly frabjous.

    There. Random enough for you? :)


  28. What's interesting....hmmmm. I work at Barnes and Noble and it is awesome!!! I love Taylor Swift and John Mayer too, great taste. His Say song and Taylor's new songs are the best!

  29. Random things about me

    1. I LOVE Benedict Cumberbatch and Sherlock as well!! I only watched it after season 2 ended so I had 6 episodes right? I watched it over a period of 2 months because I wanted to make it last longer LOL. Also, there was this guy I saw on campus..he looks a lot like the guy who plays Watson!

    2. Fringe (tv series) made me love science more. Though I still failed...

    3. I tried drawing a portrait of a friend yesterday. It sucked. -__-

  33. Whenever I'm reading whether its a book, magazine, flyer, once I put it down I have to wash my hands before I pick it up again, even if I haven't touched anything else.

  36. Here's a some random things on me.

  37. Most of my favorite shows have been on CW and I'm not in my early 30's. I also read mostly YA books now because I enjoy them so much. I guess that even though I'm a workaholic and have 3 young kids, I'll never really grow up:P

  38. I love Benedict Cumberbatch's voice (along with Richard Armitage), so lovely. haha. Also Tenth doctor is favourite!

    Random fun fact: I've worked in a lab before with lab rats and they're the cutest things ever. They're kind of like cats and like to be petted haha.

  39. I hate touching velvet. I don't know why.

  40. I loved reading this~ so fun to learn random things about you and isn't Benedit Cumberbatch love? Ah~ Sherlock makes my life happy~ And I'm a total Once Upon A Time addict as well~ but, instalove = No. I also am NOT into horror but recently tried to read a horror book (which I just avoid since I know I don't like horror in general) and loved it! Reading another one now~ weird how that works??? Hmm~ something random about me... I never click links people send me that go to Youtube because I'll get sidetracked from what I'm doing and stay there forever looking at random videos even though I never go to Youtube on my own. =/ Fun post and thank you for the giveaway! :)

  41. I hate the sound when people scratch on jeans. It's like nails on a chalk board for me which doesn't bother me but scratching on jeans does! I love cats! I plan to be a crazy old cat lady one day. Thanks for the giveaway!

  42. I love zombies, ghosts and love in books... but in real life, I have trouble believing in their existence of them all. LOL.
    I can't stand the feeling of wet hair and naked feet on my body.
    thanks so much for the chance!!

  43. Hi, my name is Tina and I have a book addiction. I have thousands of books (both print and ebook format). Wait, I have some audio books too. If it sounds good to me, I buy it even if I know I am not going to get to it anytime soon.
    Also, if I get a book that is maybe the 4th in the series, I will not read it until I have the first 3 and always start from book 1.
    I also love Once Upon A Time! I am intrigued by Hook also. I want to see where they go with his character. Thank you for the fabulous giveaway! Hope you have a wonderful day. :)

  44. i won't lie. Your post was fabulous. Some random facts about me? Lesse....
    -I have a purple scarf named after all the boys in books I have crushed on, swooned over, etc...

    Thanks for this awesome giveaway!!!

    1. Also: I commented on your EVERY DAY review =)

  47. I am totally a Cumberb*tch! I love Sherlock with a passion :) And Once Upon a Time...brilliant! I have a daughter who is turning 18 in 3 days and a son who just turned 15 :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  48. Something weird about me: I love the smell of Tide coldwater? It's actually really weird. Also I eat my food separately and one at a time in a certain order. People (my family) find that weird, but seriously, eating your veggies first then starch if you have then meat if you have any. I don't get why people find that weird.

  49. Some weird info about me:

    1. I love watching horror movies but when I get too scared I cover my eyes... Sometimes I watch the movie looking through my hands, other times I don't watch it at all...
    2. When I am affected by a show, especially when I feel very sad for the character, I force myself not to cry or sometimes I stand up and walk out of the room and do something random so I won't cry...
    3. I only chose my course because I thought it doesn't involve math and because it's very cheap...

  50. When it's about to rain, my nose starts making weird whistling noises! Thanks for the amazing giveaway.

  51. Hmm... I like screaming when I'm home alone :) or do weird things with my bestfriend

  52. I'm completely addicted to TV series. My favourites: Once Upon A Time, Person of Interest, Castle, Supernatural, Grimm, Community, Raising Hope, Haven ... I should probably stop.

  53. I can touch my tongue to my nose. And not the bottom of my nose either, but the tip! Does that count?

  54. I also love Sherlock, hehe. I'm excited to see both Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch in the Hobbit movies!

    As for something a bit random about me: I play a lot of instruments, but by ear. The only instrument I can 'read' music for is the viola. For the life of me I can't read piano music for instance. I can only play it by listening to a song and then replaying it on my own.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  55. OMG we have so much in common! I love pink as well! I've loved the colour since I was four. :) I'm an addict of Once Upon A Time too! I love it!!! I agree, I think Hook is one of my favourite characters now too! :) I'm also a Swifty too! :)

    Something weird/random about me is that I hate the genre of horror, whether it be movies or TV shows or stories spoken by people, I cannot stand scary stuff, but if I read a horror book I don't get scared. I don't really know why that is, but it's probably because I get really into books, with me using my imagination, and so if the story gets intense, I get really excited.

  56. 1. I love desserts especially chocolate and ice cream. Dessert comes first before the main course.
    2. I always root for the underdog whether it be in movies or TV
    3 I am not much of a coffee drinker but i love the smell of coffee.

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway!!! :)

  57. 1. I started watching Grimm and I almost finished the first season [:)]
    2. I absolutely love eating salted sunflower seeds. [:)))]
    3. My relationship with my boyfriend has been lasting for 3 years without a single break up.

  58. 1.- I can play piano and dumbs
    2.- I LOVE italian food
    3.- I can read a book of 400 pages by day and I just need to sleep 4 hours everyday

  59. My handwriting looks like a left hander's by the way it tilts, even though I am right handed. I often talk/laugh/hum in my sleep.

  60. I have a dog who thinks he's a cat :)

  61. Thanks for the giveaway!
    I like to read YA novels with weird plots ie things that would never happen in real life~~~

  62. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Hmmm-I always laugh when someone offends me... Does someone's else's weird habit count? If it does, my friend writes with her book upside down!

  63. Hmm...some random/weird facts about me...

    1. I may or may not have slight obsessions with Taylor Swift and The Hunger Games
    2. I sort of have a tendency to talk about myself in the third person...
    3. I am currently learning 4 different languages - French, Spanish, Chinese and Latin!


  64. Some fact about me:
    1. I'm chocolate addicted.
    2. I can't leave my room without double checking the lock
    3. I'm carry my hand phone to every where i go but i rarely using it.

  65. When I was a teenager I used to sleepwalk.

    I don't like mangoes.

    I love the color purple if I could everything I own would be purple.


  66. I love singing at the top of my lungs when I'm at hope alone... I just cant help myself no to... Thanks for the great giveaway and for making it international!

  67. I like acting like a spy....But simple stuff like recognizing someones footsteps or using a window to see what's happening at an angle away from me. I promise I'm not a creeper about it though!!! Just for fun and safety so no one sneaks up and grab me bf I can execute my kung fu ninja skills!

  68. Hehe . . . I love this comment topic! Turns out we have a ton of opposites between the two of us!

    1) I can't go anywhere with makeup on! I just don't know how some people look amazing with it. Last time I tried eyeliner, I kinda (understatement) messed it up and made myself look like I was crying grey streaks of something. And mascara makes me look like I glued spider legs onto my lids.
    2) I cant' stand glitter. I don't know why. I just start freaking out whenever I see it. And not in a good way. And I have no idea what to do with the colour pink. O_O
    3) I'm probably the polar opposite of a hopeless romantic. Usually, I'm not much for the romantic aspects of a book, except in the case of maybe The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight, and The Fault in Our Stars. In other books, I tend to look at the action and story-building to stay immersed in the story.
    4) I'm a sucker for music. Any kind. (Except for some pop.) I love classical, metal, reggae, jazz, rock.

    Lust For Stories
    P.S. I had lots of fun reading more about you! c:

  69. Something "weird" about me? Well, I do LOTS of things alone, almost. I like singing, but even me I don't like my voice. I'm a minimalist. People's first impression about me "I'm anti-social", but no, I'm just shy, talk to me if you want.

    I'm also an architect student, so continue your dreams, I will be glad if I have a chance to work on your firm :)

    Thanks and God Bless.

  70. This is interesting.
    I have a habit of rubbing things like pencils, pens, correction tape..

  71. 1. i bet no one will understand it. sometimes when im alone in my bedroom im thinking about how if there is no universe and it feels REALLY REALLY ,WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?(world) and when my sister comes to my room i was like,"soooo she is my sister?"
    2. i just saw a gory pic for about a few minutes....i was ok..BUT THEN,after the pic was gone,i felt dizzy and my stomach hurts
    3. i like any dark color
    4. i dont have any talent,i suck at everything (i'm not lying,this is very true)

  72. I loved reading about weird things :D

    I am a complete TV show nut. I watch over 12 tv shows that are still filming episodes.

    before one of the 12th grade exams, instead of learning, i watched 5 seasons of Criminal minds in 7 days...

  73. I used to watch a lot of TV shows and do marathons of TV series/movies despite I had other things to do, I did not stop until I finished with them, lol

    I am addicted to nail polishes... every time I go out I look for new ones to add to my collection lol

    Thank you for the giveaway xD

  74. I start crying whenever someone tries to tickle me! I just start bawling!

  75. Did you know that otters hook their paws together when they sleep so they don't float away from each other. Awesome giveaway!

  76. I`m totally scared of freshwater aquatic plants (except the beautiful and blossoming ones) when I`m swiming in a river or lake :D

  77. Sometimes my eyes are blue, even though they're green. But because of light or whatsoever they become blue.

  78. I also can not leave the house without makeup on! I once had a friend tell me she doesn't know what I look like without makeup and I replied neither do I.

    Random Crazy Fact hmm...My skin is really sensitive and so there are certain fabrics that I can not stand to touch or have touching me and I call these fabrics "Bad Touch!". So the other day my Mom was trying to buy a shirt for my dad and she told the sales consultant "Sorry I can't get him that one it's bad touch". I felt like I was making that phrase catch on.

  79. I have 7 tattoos, 4 of them are dragon related

  80. I eat ketchup with EVERYTHING! NO JOKE!


  81. I just started my first blog event called Celebrating Debutantes. It is about highlighting debut authors of 2012. I interviewed them and they're awesome to donate their books/swag packs for giveaway! :)
