About me: I'm nearly 19 y/o and currently starting my first year of University studying Biomedical Science! Yes, I'm a big science nerd so expect many facts in future posts! Ever since I was little, books were a huge part of my life, and am proud to say that ’till this day, they still are. Though I took a short break from reading in 2016 (to focus on my final year of high school), I'm finally back and can’t wait to catch up on everything I've missed and get back into reading! I look a little bit like this:
(as you can see, I really love my Hummus and Tea)
My favourite genre of books has got to be YA Fantasy and Science Fiction! Though I don’t have much blogging experience, I did Advanced English in my final two years of High School so writing is something I'm very much used to and I'm very keen to show you guys what I've got up my sleeve! I’m also from the Middle East and I'm Muslim! In saying that, I LOVE reading books about my religion and heritage. Whether it'd be historical or fictional, though in regards to the later, it is very hard to find.
I’m also a graphic designer, and I came first in my IT: Multimedia Class in 2016, for the third time in a row. I love every aspect of designing, especially if it’s book related! In late 2016, I worked with a book box subscription company named Spearcraft to design an Alice in Wonderland themed card! Some of my bookish work below!
Now to the question I dread the most: What’s your favourite book? … Can you hear my sigh? I don’t think I will ever have a favourite book, it will always be one of the latest ones I've read (and will read!) as I get quite attached to a book; whether it be its setting, the characters or the nature of the narrative.
One book I can mention right now is The Wrath and The Dawn by Renee Ahdieh, it’s one of the first books I’ve read after my hiatus from reading (and maybe that's a reason as to why it's placed so high on the list?) but it could also be due to the encapsulating writing style Ahdieh has, the characterisation of characters whose names I grew up with and the fact its based off A Thousand and One Nights.
And that’s a wrap! thank you so much for reading this and I can’t wait for future posts! As I said, I'm super excited to be blogging alongside Meleika, Bayram, Regi, Sophie and Eri!
