Top Ten Tuesday: 10 Facts About Me

Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is an original feature/weekly meme created at The Broke and the Bookish. If you love books and making lists, this is the meme for you! This week’s topic is:

Ten Facts About Me

I haven’t taken part in this meme for weeks as the topics just haven’t suited me. I did a little jig of joy when I saw this week’s topic was facts about me – that I can do and I have missed taking part! Our facts can be bookish or just general, so I’ve decided to do 5 of each.

First up, 5 bookish facts about me:

~ 1 ~

My favourite book is The Hobbit by J.R.R.Tolkien – I have read it more times than I can keep track of!

~ 2 ~

My favourite genres to read are Fantasy, Historical Fiction and Mystery.

~ 3 ~

I also enjoy reading non-fiction books on Faith, Food and History.

~ 4 ~

I am a self-confessed spine breaker however I would never write in a book! (When they used to make us make notes in books at school I used to do it in faint pencil so I could rub it out later).

~ 5 ~

I am now in my fifth and final year of The Classics Club, and I have read 44 books towards my goal of 50.  I have loved taking part and I am really going to miss it!

Now, 5 general facts about me:

~ 6 ~

I use my blog as a sociable reading diary and it is currently in its 6th year.

~ 7 ~

For the last 6 years, I have also been a member of a local belly dancing group – a very fun way to keep fit.

~ 8 ~

I work as a one-to-one teaching assistant for children with special educational needs.

~ 9 ~

As well as reading books, I love to watch TV, film and stage adaptations.

~ 10 ~

I have a black cat called Bonnie – you may have spotted her on here now and again.

I hope you’ve learnt a little something about me. Please link in and let me know if you have taken part in this week’s Top Ten Tuesday topic.

  1. Me too! to all your fave genres:) Also way to go with the Classics Club and making a goal, sticking to it and being almost finished! That’s not easy! Congrats!

  2. But you must do a new Classics Club list! You can’t finish just when I’ve finally started! I like the belly dancing fact so much I’ll forgive you for the spine breaking fact… 😉

    1. Haha thank you for forgiving me, FictionFan 😀 I am sorely tempted to start a new Classics Club list, because I will really miss it, but then I am excited about what new challenges and projects might be out there for me 🙂

    1. TJ you probably shouldn’t encourage me…I am very tempted to start another Classics Club list! You will find Bonnie in a few of my end of month posts and accidentally in one of my new book posts (where she decided to sniff the books I was taking a photo of).

  3. Yay that’s a fun meme! And Hi, fellow spine-breaker here😂 And I’ve known you for quite a few years, blogging years fly by!

      1. Heh I remember posting about Anne Fadiman’s essay about carnal readers and the discussion in the comments, very hot topic for readers 😂

  4. Six years, that’s amazing! I’m on my first year and I can’t imagine staying on my blog for that long (although I plan to). I generally get bored two years in, haha. Have you taken any hiatuses in those six years?

    Here’s my TTT, if you’re interested. 🙂

    1. Reg, I must admit my first two years were a little patchy when it came to posting and getting used to my own style. However in the last 3 years things have settled down and each year I have enjoyed blogging more and more 🙂

      p.s. popping over to check out your post now.

      1. I get that! When I first started out I was also trying to figure out what I want… and I still am, right now, haha. I don’t think I’ll ever really ‘settle’ because my tastes change quite a lot and quite often and I think it’ll translate to my blog.

        Glad to hear that you’re enjoying blogging more and more! ❤
