I have a love of boy bands since I was a teenager in particular Take That, New Kids on the Block, Boyzone, and NSync. I also love Matchbox Twenty, Daughtry, The Script, Craig David, Linkin Park, Robbie Williams and Boyz II Men. Recently I have been on a 90's music kick.

About Me

I am 39 years old, I've lived all my life in Adelaide Australia. I have a 3 year old niece and a 6 year old nephew I adore. I have just recently found swapping and I am loving it, I am doing a number of book exchanges and I am now looking forward to doing other types of swaps. I am a tea drinker, in particular chai and rooibos. I love trying new things like new foods and sweets as well as new flavours like pumpkin spice. I love cooking, especially baking. I also love anything to do with Snoopy. I love getting postcards.

Favorite Books

I like horror, thriller, crime, and mystery books. I generally will read anything if it sounds interesting. My favourite authors include Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and James Patterson. I also read YA. I have just started reading manga.

Favorite Movies

My favourite movie is Stand By Me as it is based on a Stephen King story. I love horror films especially anything Zombie related. i love the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit Trilogy. I loved all the harry potter films.

Favorite Television

My favourite tv shows include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Fierfly, Charmed, Farscape, Doctor Who, Supernatural and Teen Wolf. I also like crime shows. I have just recently started watching anime again. I love Food Wars, Sailor Moon and Akira

Comment: I put your songs into a playlist on Spotify so that I could have a listen before I rated :) We must have a lot of the same taste! There were a few K-pop songs there that I didn't know so it was nice to try them out.

Book quote, September

"My stomach broke into pieces and spun like a kaleidoscope. Dimly I saw my hand reaching toward it, lifting it to my nose. Cheap ink and old paper. It felt hot, but my arms prickled with goosebumps. I ripped it open."

The Hazel Wood, Melissa Albert

Book Quote- September

β€œWhen new hopes fail, old hopes return in the endless cycle of desperation.” ― Dean Koontz, Prodigal Son

Book Quote - September

β€œTo the blessed darkness from which we are born, and to which we return.” ― Sarah J. Maas, A Court of Frost and Starlight

ankitabora on Aug 29, 2018:

Book Quote - August β€œbecause we have two legs and travelling on foot is the right speed for human beings. Walking sorts out your problems and anxieties, and calms your worries. Living from day to day, from inspiration to inspiration, much of what I have learned as a Jain has come from wandering. Sometimes, even my dreams are of walking.” - William Dalrymple, Nine Lives

August Book Quote πŸ“š

"The caterpillar goes into the chrysalis, her grandmother had said. And then it changes. Its skin changes and its eyes change and its mouth changes. Its feet vanish. Every bit of itself - even its knowledge of itself - turns to mush.

'Mush?' Luna had asked, wide-eyed.

'Well,' her grandmother had reassured her. 'Perhaps not mush. Stuff. The stuff of stars. The stuff of light. The stuff of a planet before it is a planet. The stuff of a baby before it is born. The stuff of a seed before it is a sycamore. Everything you see is in the process of making or unmaking or dying or living. Everything is in a state of change."

  • Kelly Barnhill, The Girl Who Drank the Moon

β€œThe books we love, they love us back. And just as we mark our places in the pages, those pages leave their marks on us. I can see it in you, sure as I see it in me. You're a daughter of the words. A girl with a story to tell.” - Jay Kristoff, Nevernight

I mostly read while on the treadmill at the gym, and this book has been quite a page turner. :)

Song Lyrics #4 Electronic Song: These Days Artist: Rudimental ft Jess Glynn

I hope someday We'll sit down together And laugh with each other About these days, these days

A new song but one I’ve really gotten into. It’s about a relationship ending and looking back on it but also looking forward and hoping that they can stay amicable and still chat about the times they had in the future.
