Tell Me About It Thursdays – 25 Bookish Facts About Me!

Hello Internet!

I have decided to start doing a weekly blog post about books, school, or really anything interesting that has happened in my life! I figured that the best way to start off “Tell Me About It Thursdays” is with 25 bookish facts about me! I see a lot of these posts and videos floating around on booktube, booklr, and bookstagram and I thought it’d be a great way for you all to get to know me, so I’m hopping on the bandwagon (or is it called bookwagon? Thoughts?).
