Top Ten Tuesday: Book-Related Facts About Me

This week’s Top Ten Tuesday, a meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish, focuses on the book bloggers rather than the books themselves. But since talking about myself is not nearly as interesting as letting others do the honors for me, I’ve enlisted my friends to contribute!

Here are ten book-related facts about me, according to those who know me best! (All facts have been quoted via Facebook comments).

1. “You’re a bit of a grammar queen, who tends to correct people’s Facebook posts. Like mine, for example.”

2. “You love Greek mythology.”

3. “If there’s a sexist rich guy in a book, he automatically reminds you of Christian Grey.”

4. “You prefer the fresh smell of binding to the fluorescent glow from some lifeless e-book.”

5. “You hate when books end, and you’re left without any real closure.”


6. “You’re frenemies with Elizabeth Gilbert.”

7. “Ideal book: Dystopian feminist-centric romance novel based in an alternative universe where dogs and cats have equal rights as humans.”

8. “Ideal male leads to fight for the heroine’s heart and affection are played by none other than Tom Hiddleston and Jared Leto in the movie adaptation in three parts.”

9. “You love fantasy with supernatural types and fireworks at the end.”

10. “I know you may not kick stray puppies when you’re bored, but you sure do have some built-up tension towards Nicholas Sparks.”

All I can say is that my friends have certainly described me in a nutshell! Do any of their facts resonate with you as well?

  1. I absolutely love your twist on this weeks topic and Tom Hiddleston has to be the ultimate male lead. Who wouldn’t want to be swept off their feet by him haha.

  2. Yeah, I like when books have real endings. None of this vague “Maybe it was okay, but life is terrible but maybe not” stuff for me! I think this is why I love Charles Dickens so much. You always get all the ends tied nicely together.

  3. I love that you had your friends help you make this list. People don’t like it when I correct their grammar either. It’s not like I go out of my way, it’s just an automatic reaction. I need one of those shirts that say, “Silently correcting your grammar.” If only I could perfect the silent part.

  4. Number six made me laugh so much. And number eight. I love that you got these from other people – I can never think of what to write about myself for these things, maybe I should ask other people next time!
