Back to School Book Blogger Challenge: Day 1

Day 1: It's time to stand up in front of the class and share with the rest of us a little about you!

I am 24-year-old book blogger (of course!). I live in the southern United States and my favorite place to read is by the pool. My favorite genre is historical fiction and romance. I have an "old soul" and I love all things from the past. Old music, old movies, and things people my age don't typically do (like crocheting). 

I just graduated college after changing majors many times. I began my first semester at 18 as a business major, changed to teaching, changed to English, and settled on nursing. I just graduated recently with a nursing degree, passed my state boards, and I am going to begin my first "real" job this week. This after working minimum-wage serving and customer service type things for ~6 years. 

I have my very own love story in the making. I am getting married next year (and I have something really cool planned at the beginning of 2015 to tie that in the the blog)! Even though he doesn't quite understand my love for reading or the fact that I need to by three books for every one that I read, he still politely listens to my book rants and gushes...and that's really all I need.

The kids in my town really did go back to school today and I am overjoyed that this is the first year that I didn't have to! It's fitting, however, for me to begin a new job this week. And hey... more money... more books!



  1. Congratulations on the new job! I look forward to reading your posts associated with the Back to School Book Blogger Challenge.

  3. Congratulations on your new job and upcoming marriage. Everyone in my town went back to school today too:) I'm excited to read what your answers to other challenge questions will be:)

  4. Congratulations on both your job and getting married! I'm a bit of an old soul myself too, a lot of my favourite films/music tend to be pretty old. I'm looking forward to reading your post for the rest of the challenge :)

  8. Good thing you got your degree in nursing and NOT English! I've been working part-time minimum wage jobs for much longer than you, and I blame my English degree. I know it was worthwhile, and I'm still in love with words, but employers never see it that way. And I know some recent college grads with English degrees who are working at anything they can get including retail (bleah!) But I also know a grad with an Anthropology degree who's back at another school learning how to be a paralegal because being a hostess in restaurants wasn't paying her bills.

  9. Congrats on the engagement and upcoming wedding! Oh you youngins - I feel like such an old fart. :D Thanks for participating.
