Top Ten Tuesdays: Ten Facts About Me


For future Top Ten Tuesday topics & info on how to participate, click here!


I was unsure whether to do personal or bloggy facts, so here are five of each!



  • I'm 23 years old, and a graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Geography which I will probably never use in my whole life! That picture up there is me and I think I look like a chipmunk.
  • I live in a city in the north of England called York, I moved here for university like four years ago but can never see myself leaving it now! It's a gorgeous city with so much amazing history. 
  • I am a massive fan of Pokemon, so I have walked more in the days since Pokemon Go! was released than I have in the months before. Pokemon Go! changed my life.
  • I get attached to things easily, so I'm a big fangirl of things. My current 'thing' is Supernatural (my boyfriend and I have gone through 8 seasons in three months). I also love K-Pop and K-Dramas... yes, I'm that girl.
  • I was sorted into Slytherin on Pottermore and I'm not gonna lie, I totally don't object. I am definitely a slytherin.



Blogging
  • I started Ink Scratchers in 2010 when I stumbled across The Book Smugglers blog and realized that I wanted people to discover my blog and use it to help them choose which books to buy. I never imagined it would get this far or last this long, but it's still going strong.
  • I have a 13 tab spreadsheet which helps me organise which books to read and what books to review - one which acts as a 'loose' schedule and one for every month where I write what books come out on one day so i can keep track of books which I 'need' to review, but I don't schedule what to review when ahead of time.
  • I'll read anything that is Young Adult but at the moment I'm leaning toward contemp and thriller type reads. I love books that bring something new to their genre though, and Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell is like my #1 book of the last few years.
  • I never reread, which means when I read sequels I go into them remembering very little about the previous books... it's a nightmare for me.
  • I have a really short attention span so being able to concentrate on a book is the biggest compliment I can give it. For this reason, I take a bath any time I'm about to start a new book - this way i can't get distracted by anything else.
So that's all about me! I'll pop by and check out yours as well :)

  1. Oh wow, York is a beautiful city and so historical--lucky you! I also am crazy about Supernatural. It's my favorite "feel-good" show to watch and the show just keeps going strong. I will watch the fortieth season, where Sam and Dean will be walking around slapping demons with their canes, if CW keeps renewing it! Following you back. :)

  2. I have seen Kdramas and Kpop make a couple lists this week, and it makes me so happy :) I am insanely obesessed with Kdramas, it's ridiculous. Are you on MDL?

  4. Re-reading is brilliant, in case you missed bits! Sometimes sequels surpass the original, Girl Online On Tour is better than the first. And as for Fangirl!LOVE!

    Thank you for the follow and visiting my blog! I didn't learn any Romanian while I was there, well nothing that I remember. We had translators with us.

  7. York is a lovely city, it must be amazing to live there!

    I can't wait for Pokemon Go to be released - my other half has already downloaded it, but I'm trying to wait for the official release because my phone can be...temperamental.

    Great post :)

  9. Love k-dramas! I'm currently watching Heirs. I was sorted into Ravenclaw though I'm kind of a ravenpuff because on various quizzes I get hufflepuff too.

  11. Aw, this is so fun! I get attached to things too- like, it takes quite a bit for me to get attached, but once I do, I am CRAZY attached. I also have a college degree that I will never use, so don't feel bad- at least you'll have it ;) And you are adorable, and not at all chipmunk-like! ♥
