Behind the Reader

“A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies,” said Jojen. “The man who never reads lives only one.”

Hey, dearies! How are you today?

So, I remembered, realised, noticed, however you want to call it, that I don’t have much on me on the blog, though how obsessed I am with some books, characters and authors is also a statement.

But today, I’m doing a bit of fast facts on me since I’m not only a reader but also a writer, a photography aficionado, a traveller, a sister, an aunt, a friend and many other things. But I’ll keep it short, as you know I do, sometimes.

Behind the Reader

Fast facts about me. I’ll number them.

  1. I’m a self-published author.
  2. I have a degree in Telecommunications Engineering.
  3. I don’t use my degree. I prefer to do other things that have little to do with telecommunications.
  4. I started writing when I was about fourteen? Before that, I kept journals of my daily life.
  5. One of the first books I read and loved and wanted more of was The Chamber of Secrets.
  6. I write better than I speak.
  7. I have an ISFP personality. I don’t think that’s much of a shock, but for those who don’t know, it stands for Introverted, Observant, Feeling, and Prospecting personality traits.
  8. I manage all my social media accounts.
  9. I create all of my content, and I design the covers of my own books.

And that’s it. I just thought I should share a bit more since I feel like, at times, people don’t realise there is an actual person behind all of this. 🙂 Thank you for reading. And if you’re on any social media, find me as each.page or sela.ordaz.author or amanda_littrell_author.

Happy Easter Week! 🐰

Didn’t Finish, Did Finish Book Challenge

“She was spirit and presence, as rare and brilliant as snowflakes in sunlight, and he could not bring himself to harm her.”
The Smoke Thief

Hello, dearies! I hope your day/night is going well.

This book challenge was originally, did not finish do not care, but as that is a little too much for me, on the negative side. I decided to give it my own spin and share three books that I didn’t finish and did finish, and why.

Enjoy! 📲

What’s up, December?

Wow! First Day of the Last Month of this 2021.

Happy December, dearies! I trust this one started full of reading and happy thoughts for everyone.

Since it’s already here, then we might as well make the best of it, right? No point in crying over spill potion. As 2022 comes closer and closer, it has become increasingly and shockingly obvious that all the books I was supposed to read this time around did not happen.
