3. Choose 10 people and link them in your post.
4. Tell them you’ve tagged them.
5. Remember, no tag backs.


10 Random Facts about Me:
1. I just finished my sophomore year of college
2. My major is elementary education and I LOVE it. I LOVE kids. I was born to be a teacher and a mom. I couldn't imagine not having kiddos in my life (even though I'm no where near ready to have kids of my own yet :)
3. I have two sisters, both younger
4. I am madly in love with my Savior, Jesus Christ
5. I don't like coffee, tea, or soft drinks. I just drink water, gatorade, or lemonade.

7. I would pick the beach over mountains/cold ANY day.

10. My favorite color is always changing. Some days it is blue, some days it is pink. At the moment it is yellow.


Questions from Amanda:
1. How long have you been blogging?
About 11 months but only seriously for 3 months

2. Why did you start blogging?
I loved to read and read a lot anyway, so why not share my opinions with the world?! I also really wanted one play where I would be able to look back and remember if I liked a certain book or not if I could not remember.

3. Who is your favorite author?
Erynn Mangum and Karen Whitemeyer!

4. What is your favorite book?
Ah, too many to choose from! I would have to say the Miss Match series by Erynn Mangum.

5. Do you have any ARCs right now? If so, what?
Yes! I need to hurry up and read them! There's just so many great books in the world!

8. If you could be a book character for a day who would you be? Why?
Oh goodness. Probably Jane Bennet. I wish I lived 100-200 years ago anyway. And who doesn't love Mr. Darcy?!
