For my first blog entry, I was planning on writing a summary of my life, stating who I am and what I like to do in my spare time, but even I got bored trying to write the entry I just described. I would be stating the obvious: I like to read. Why would I have a blog on YA fiction if I did not spend at least some of my spare time reading? Instead, I will tell you a little about myself by using an article I found titled “What Kind of Book Reader Are You? A Diagnostics Guide”.
The article described ten types of readers, and I happen to fit into three of the categories:
1. The Cross-Under
The Cross-Under is a reader who is guilty of reading outside their designated age group. I am twenty years old, yet I still read Young Adult novels. That is not to say I only read YA novels, and I won’t read any YA novel on the shelf, as I did when I actually belonged in this age group. I don’t think I will ever stop reading YA novels.
2. Delayed Onset Reader #1
I shamefully admit that I belong in this category. As much as I love reading, I always acquire more books than I have time to read. My family jokingly says I have an addiction. It is hard for me to walk out of a bookstore empty-handed. I find it incredibly satisfying to hold a freshly purchased book that I can cram onto my overflowing bookshelves. About a month ago, I counted the books I had that had never been read, and there were over forty.
3. The Multi-Tasker
Calling me a multi-tasker is somewhat hilarious, seeing as just the other day, I ran into a pole because I can’t look at my phone and walk at the same time. However, when it comes to novels, I rarely read one at a time. This means that I do not always finish the books I start, but if I only read one book at a time, it would be harder to decide which novels are more worthy of my time.
