Thanks so much, Sarah, for nominating me!
Eleven facts about myself:
1. When I found out Sarah was reading By Darkness Hid, I was BEYOND EXCITED!!!!!! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH. I adore Jill Williamson's books and it makes me so happy when other people read them. :)
2. I don't have braces anymore! I got them out a few days ago. I haven't adjusted to speaking with a retainer yet. =P Whenever I see someone, I'm like, "Sorry! I just got a retainer so I'm talking weird!" Except I'm hardly coherent.
3. My littlest brother turned one on Sunday! He had a ton of fun eating his piece of cake.
4. I"M GOING TO DO A BLOG TOUR. I am ridiculously excited. It's for Playing with Matches by Suri Rosen, and it'll be in September. I'm going to include my review, a brief interview of the author, and a GIVEAWAY!!!!!! OF THE BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOK!!! (Sorry this post has a ton of capital words and exclamation points.... I've got a lot to be excited about!)
5. I need a synonym for "excited" because I use that word way too often.
6. I've discovered that it's easier for me to relate to characters that are culturally, religiously, and educationally different than I am. For example, a Jewish matchmaker and an eleven year old boy.
7. Why is it so hard for me to list eleven facts?!
8. Uh.... I need to apply some more teal nail polish. It's wearing off.
9. I have no idea where the term "Liebster" comes from. Why did that guy get an award named after him?
10. I can crochet and sew, but I prefer knitting.
11. I need a desk for my room.
