Hi! *waves enthusiastically* Thanks for visiting! My name is Ariel. Yes… like the little mermaid. I have made the leap and decided to create my own blog. Woo! I’m super de duper new at this, so bear with me as I blog my first post. (Do you blog a post? Is that what you call it? Oi.) I guess since this is my first post, I’ll give you a little introductory information. (Are you supposed to give introduction information on your first post?)

What to expect: I love books. I will be blogging about books. Boooooooks. My life revolves around books, so that’s what my blog will revolve around. My goal is to blog at least once a week about what book(s) I’m reading and how it/they influenced me or reminded me of something during my week. Maybe I’ll include an event that happened to me. Maybe I’ll talk about a dream I had. I have amazingly vivid dreams and a lot of times they stem from something that I read. My friends always find them quite interesting, so I thought I might write about them on here. In every post I make, I will give you a review and summary about that book, along with how it connects to what was going on in my life that week or a dream that I had. Or both. 😀

About me: I am 16 years old. Hehe. I remember waiting for my birthday, knowing that when I turned 16, I would be the average age of my book characters. Now that I am, I have fun comparing myself to them. Most of the books I read are YA (young adult), but I’m not very strict about what I do read. What I read all depends on my mood and what catches my attention at the time. Too often I have trouble choosing between options. Along with reading, I also enjoy writing. In fact, that’s one of the reasons I started this blog; I want to become a better writer. I know it’s not realistic to imagine that as soon as I write a book it will be magically published and read by everyone on the planet, so I’m hoping to become a book editor first. This is one of the steps toward that goal. I live at home with my mom, dad, 13-year-old sister, and a german shepherd named Beauty. My mom is actually the person who told me that I should start a blog, after hearing from someone else that it was good practice for writers. I really look forward to improving. (Thanks mom!)

Thank you for your time, and I hope to see you for future posts! Au revoir!
