25 Bookish Facts About Me

I absolutely love watching “25 Bookish Facts About Me” videos on Booktube, so I thought I’d share some facts about my own reading life!

  1. In kindergarten, my teacher read Junie B. Jones Is a Graduation Girl to my class, which inspired my love for Junie B and reading.
  2. The first ARC (Advanced Reader’s Copy) I ever received was David Baldacci’s The Keeper.
  3. My favorite Hogwarts professor is Professor Lupin, who I still have a major crush on. Maybe it’s the werewolf thing?
  4. I am a major The Hunger Games fan. I have the first movie’s poster framed in my bedroom at home and I will forever be #teamgale
  5. The first young-adult series I ever read was The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares.
  6. The authors I’ve met include Marie Lu, Rainbow Rowell, Sarah J. Maas, Jacqueline Woodson, Jenny Han, E.Lockhart, and Adam Silvera.
  7. A librarian once accused of destroying the front cover of a Pretty Little Liars’ book. Yes, I read the PLL series, those books are addicting! I think my tears proved that I wasn’t the culprit, and I was terrified of going to the library without my mom for a while.
  8. My favorite book that I’ve read in school is The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood.
  9. Besides Junie B.Jones, I read Nancy Drew, the Babysitters’ Club, and the Main Street series growing up.
  10. I attended Book Con in 2015 and 2017, and the convention has made up two of the best weekends of MY LIFE. I have recap posts for my Saturday and Sunday at Book Con 2017.
  11. I’m a Hufflepuff.
  12. In middle school, I would read under my desk during math. #rebel
  13. My favorite classic is A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith
  14. While I find hardcovers more aesthetically pleasing, I love reading paperbacks more.
  15. While I’ve gotten better in dealing with noise, I need it to be quiet when I read so I can focus more.
  16. My favorite bookmark is my Sheldon Cooper from The Big Bang Theory with a quote above his head that says, “That’s my spot!”
  17. If I were a Hogwarts house combination, I would be a Ravenpuff.
  18. I read 72 books in 2015 and 70 in 2016.
  19. I bought These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner primarily for its gorgeous cover
  20. My favorite places to read include my bed, and the beach and my backyard in the summer
  21. I wasn’t allowed to read the Twilight series when the books and movies came out because my parents thought I was too young. I read Twilight a few years later for book club and didn’t really understand what the hype was about.
  22. One of my favorite bookish tote bags is from Swoon Reads, and it says, “Shelfies Over Selfies”.
  23. More often than not, I make myself read a book before seeing its film adaption
  24. Since one of my siblings isn’t a big reader, whenever she actually reads a book and loves it, I must read it!
  25. The only Harry Potter movie I saw in the movie theater was Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. It’s one of the reasons why I consider Goblet of Fire one of my favorite books in the series.

I loved doing this tag and plan on doing a part 2 in the future! What are some bookish facts about you? Share in the comments below

  1. #21! Hehe. If my parents had any clue what Twilight was about before I read it, I don’t think I would have been allowed either!!! As it was, I became a pretty big fan for a bit there…a period of life which I now look back on with slight embarrassment, not gonna lie haha.

  2. Aww – Junie B. Jones! The Mushy Gushy Valentine was my absolute favorite from the series 🙂
    Haha, yes! The bed is a heaven for the bibliophiles.
    I haven’t yet read A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, but it has been on my TBR foreverrrr now. My personal favorite classic is (so hard to choose!) A Secret Life of Bees just because I love books that take place in the south.
    Great tag by the way, I’m looking forward to your part 2!
    Happy Reading 🙂
