Introduce Yourself: This being the first topic, let’s all get to know each other better. Tell us what kind of reader you are. What are your favorite genres and books? Who are your favorite authors? Do you have a comfort read? And what’s the best book you’ve read so far this year? You can also include links of where other readers can find you online, such as your book social networking sites, etc.
I was raised on Pinoy Funny Komiks. I thank you. Bow.
Kidding! But yeah, I read that a lot when I was a kid. :P
I read mostly YA, fantasy, science fiction, and some alternate history and historical fiction.
My favorite authors are Neil Gaiman (too awesome to be described further), J.K. Rowling (no further descriptions required either), Scott Westerfeld (I like him; he’s quirky), Brandon Sanderson (he’s hilarious and his brand of fantasy always turns up pleasant surprises), Jane Austen (classic! <3), Michael Crichton (dense science stuff, but I love it!), Margaret Weis (her stories are epic!), and Rick Riordan (he’s funny and his books are fun).
When I need a break from going through my To Read pile or from the books that I have to write about, I like picking up certain books to re-read: Pride and Prejudice, Memoirs of a Geisha, or any Harry Potter book that suits my fancy. I really don’t know why, I just do. Kinda like I occasionally just have to watch Sabrina (the Julia Ormond/Harrison Ford version) or The Holiday.
Ummm… yeah. Moving on.
You can learn more about my reading exploits here on the blog or over at Goodreads, where you can get an almost-page-by-page account of what I think of what I’m currently reading.
That’s it! I look forward to getting to know more Pinoy readers!
