Armchair BEA: An Introduction
I started my blog in January this year, when I was feeling bored and miserable and useless, and it still surprises me what a big part of my life it has become- when I'm watching a great film, or reading a really good book, I find myself thinking 'Oooh, I can't wait to blog about this!' I read all kinds of stuff, and I think that's reflected under my 'Devouring Books' section; and I also love to write about films, and a little bit about TV (but only if it's really good, or, conversely, really bad). I don't have any kind of reviewing system, like other, far more organised bloggers, and so my reviews are likely just to be some random thoughts that I had about the books- my theory on this is, if I find them interesting, someone else is bound to too. 61 followers can't be wrong, right?!
I have so many books that I sometimes disgust myself, and so many of them are unread- this is something I'm trying to rectify daily. I am also a Stephen King fanatic, and am currently in the throes of a self-imposed Stephen King challenge (reading all his books in my lifetime/the forseeable future) and I just finished The Stand, for the second time! I honestly feel that, after this, I can basically do anything ever, which is a pretty nice feeling to have.
Other than reading, I also like to bake, watch movies, think about moving out of my parents' house, figuring out what I actually want to do with my life, and getting some pets! I also think about Johnny Depp a lot more than is probably healthy, and know more about him than I definitely should. But come on, who doesn't love Johnny?! I also find myself on twitter a lot more than I should, if you want to find me there, I'm @LauraRowsell, or, in fact, you can just find me there through the link to your right! Come and say hi, and I'll definitely be nice back to you!
This is going to be so great, I can feel it already!
