So it’s that day of the week again! This week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic is: Ten Facts About Me. As an introduction, Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly bookish meme originally started by the bloggers over at The Broke and The Bookish blog. There are different topics for every week so please go give their blog a visit to see the interesting posts they have there.
Bookish facts about me:
1. I love fantasy and YA novels
Although I do read any genre of books, I am rather fond of fantasy and YA books. If you’d ask for a reason, I’d say it’s due to their very attractive covers and diverse themes.
2. I’m a book
As at to date, I have absolutely no idea how many books are there in my TBR pile. Last time I counted, I had around eighty. Since then, I’ve continued to obtain books so the pile probably won’t be diminishing any time soon.
3. I try not to get books part of a series
It’s not that I hate series but it’s either because I’m too impatient to wait for the next book in the series to be published or it’s because I have insufficient funds to actually get the whole series at once. But if it’s just a sequel or a trilogy, I wouldn’t mind getting them at all.
Personal facts about me:
4. I get bored easily
I don’t get bored while reading but if I’m doing other things, say shopping or drawing, I get bored pretty easily.
5. I love to watch anime
Back in my school days, I used to watch anime every weekend. Since there were hardly any new anime on the television, I’d watch it online. I’d even spent more than ten hours trying to finish the entire series of Katekyo Hitman Reborn online. Good thing is that I’m no longer binge watching, but rather binge reading at the moment although I still download anime. Just for the fun of saying it, I’m watching ToraDora at the moment.
6. Yep, I love games
Before I got my tablet and my smartphone, I used to play online rpg games like Canaan Online, Sword Girls and League of Angels. Now with my Tab, I’m currently playing Line I Love Coffee, Sid Story and Fishing Superstars. I’ve just completed Undertale on my laptop so I’m playing Stardew Valley and Delicious: Emily’s New Beginning.
7. I’m a shy and awkward person
Truthfully, I’m very shy. I have no idea how to start a conversation with people I just met and I can’t small talk either. I’m both introverted and shy at the same time which is why I prefer sitting in a corner with a book.
Music facts about me:
8. I play both the piano and the acoustic guitar
Though I’m not very good at either, mind you. I play mostly classical music on the piano.
9. I prefer Japanese songs compared to English ones
Not much of a surprise there, huh. I listen to J-pop and anime songs most of the time. I find that Japanese songs carries more meaning compared to English mainstream songs. I do listen to English songs, but it’s usually through the radio.
10. I listen to songs according to my mood
And the book I’m reading at the moment. If the book is a romance one, I’d listen to romantic songs like One Direction. If it’s a book which demands my full concentration, I’d just listen to classical music or just piano pieces. While I was reading A Familiar Darkness, I was listening mainly to Paramore and Panic! At the Disco. At the moment, I’m listening to songs by µ’s. For those who watch and play Love Live!, you’ll know what I’m talking about for those who don’t, feel free to listen to one of their songs here.
