Name: Book Princess Mandy or, you know, Mandy for short
Location: Wonderland; chasing the sun (major props to you if you get the lovely boy band reference); Fairytaleland (it’s a real place inside my head)
ObsessionsHobbies: taking long walks on nonexistent beaches; quoting The Princess Bride at the most inopportune times; gathering all knowledge possible on how to be a princess from my Disney counterparts; and writing creatively. Oh, and, you know, reading.
I really don’t think I’m a Disney princess, but according to a Buzzfeed quiz, I technically am 40% princess, so that counts for something, right? You will always find me fangirling over books full of swoons, fairytale retellings, and mystery/thrillers – or basically anything YA. I’m YA trash, although give me a good mystery/thriller or gothic ghostie book, and I’m a total mess as well.
I’m a soulless book reader who doesn’t cry over books. I DNF (do not finish) books far too quickly. I can’t ride a bike. I have weird buzzwords for books, and they include: Bigfoot/Sasquatch, aliens, boy bands, and ghosties. I fangirl hard. I’m a recovering book hipster (although my favorites shelf still hasn’t caught up to that).
I’m forever behind on tags. My comments are forever spammed, so I never get a little alert that our conversation has been continued and I accidentally leave a lot of people talking to a comment void – I AM SO SORRY FOR THE COMMENT OBLIVION; LET’S JUST BLAME WORDPRESS? I respond to Twitter and email a bit more slowly nowadays, so if you haven’t gotten a response, it’s just me…taking my sweet ole social media time.
