My name is Aliya and I'm 19. I was home schooled up until I started college at 16. I am an English major intending on going into the publication of books. My entire childhood my mother read stories to me and my sisters every night before bed. I was unable to read until the month before my 11th birthday. Once I started reading I couldn't stop. Now I read about 130 books a year. I generally read young adult books, but I also like some romance and classics. I enjoy Shakespeare and Pride and Prejudice, but not Wuthering Heights.
In my first English class, I wrote a paper on the effects of Twitter, which lead me to join the world of Twitter. From there, the world of blogging appealed to me. So here is my attempt at blogging.
When I'm not reading, I enjoy:
Baking, my cookies and banana bread are the best.
Painting, my medium is acrylics, mostly fairies and winter scenes.
Playing my violin and piano.
Seeing plays, comedies are my favorite.
Watching movies, Miyazaki movies and Pride and Prejudice are my favorites.
