Interests
I really love books! Seriously you should see my room, in fact I'm putting pictures of my bookcases at the end of the post. My favorite genres are young adult, historical in any form, fantasy, particularly urban fantasy and romance. Lately I've been on an ya kick and I'm about to start reading Pure Sin by Kate Brian. I also have a habit of reading a lot of books at the same time. I've been trying to read more of the classics and I've just started War and Peace and I'm finding it interesting and not at all boring. But I will admit the sheer amount of pages is daunting to me, as most of my books usually range from 200 to 400 pages! I talk about books a lot in my journal.

I also really love music. My favorite genre is pop. But I listen to music all across the genres. If it sounds good to me, I'll probably listen to it. Random fact from my last.FM, I've played Coldplay's Viva La Vida around 4,000 times across two computers and a laptop!

I don't watch much TV as I used to. My TV serves as a background noise now, but I do tune in to watch True Blood and Game of Thrones. I also watch the anime Bleach on a Adult Swim, which brings me to my next part.

I love Japanese culture! I've been fascinated with it since I first saw Inuyasha back in 2003. I would love to go there one day and just marvel at it. I love manga and to a lesser extent, anime. Some of my favorite mangas are Bleach, Fruits Basket, Lovely Complex, Ouran High School Host Club, Vampire Knight, Butterflies, Flowers, etc. I'm collecting the mangas of at least 20 different series. Slowly but surely. Now that I've caught up with my Bleach manga, I can start getting more of another series. I think it's going to be Lovely Complex. I just love Risa and Otani's antics!

I'm also fascinated by British and Russian culture. Or any culture now that I think about it. I just love seeing how my culture and foreign cultures are alike and different. My primary way of finding out more about a culture is to read some of their literature and to that end, I wish more of other foreign cultures literature was translated.

I post almost everyday. I try to comment on every entry I see unless I feel like I don't have anything to say. In my journal, you can find me rambling about books, my life, my family. Basically anything I feel like!

Oh and here are pictures of some of my books
