*     *     *       11 Facts About Me       *     *     *

1. I have read over 70 books so far this year.
2. I am a night owl.  I’d rather stay up all night than get up before 7:00am.
3. I love sunrises!  Kind of an odd thing to say after that last one, eh?  😉  But it’s true… sunrises can be so lovely & it’s just such a lovely time of day!
4. I love photography!  Check out my photo blog Photos By Aerykah
5. Though I do love to type, I would much rather hand write things.
6. I am an introvert.
7. I usually don’t read the reviews before I read a book.  Sometimes, I don’t even read the book blurb.
8. I will be 24 this fall.  Though, according to what most people guess my age to be,  I I’ve been 17 for about 10 years now.  😉
9. I have a pretty strong tendency towards sarcasm. Some people don’t believe me about that, though, until they’ve known me for a while.
10. I dream of traveling.  Until I get to, though, I will continue to travel the world through fiction.  🙂
11. I don’t really like to cook.  Baking is okay… sometimes fun, but I rarely enjoy cooking of any kind.
