This year, for the first time ever, I am participating in the Armchair BEA. It's very exciting and new for me, because I've never done it, and I feel like I'm taking the next step as a reader by doing this.
For those of you who are new, here's a little bit about me.
Like my blog says I'm a book crazy, Jane Austen Lovin' Gal. Jane Austen is the reason I created this blog. It used to be called My Jane Austen Obsession, but then I figured out I wanted to blog about more than just her books. Although I still do my 1 a month "sequels" (yall will understand if you read some of my very first posts!) I've been blogging since January 2011 as a project for my junior year creative writing class. I've stuck with it for over a year! I am book obsessed and I do love Jane Austen, but I am not from the south and I do not have an accent. I volunteer at Camp Barnabas, a camp for kids with special needs and a lot of volunteers there are Texans. Although, I don't see why I can't be a Gal just because I'm not from Texas:)
I also want to be a writer, and am going to write my own book this year (so excited!) I'm a Baptist, but I'm not one of those religious-shove-it-down-your-throat-people, although I do take my faith seriously and am very intense and wise and deep. I know a lot for a my age, and I don't know a lot for my age. But I am only 17. YES I am a high school graduate!! If you haven't figured it out yet, I am not just book crazy, I am crazy as in crazy wild and also crazy about life. I am that woman who grows up but still has the heart of a little girl in a dress with two swinging braids. I believe in havin' a purpose and using the gifts God gave us. I am that woman who always laughs, always smiles, always gives hugs, is always happy and excited to see you, is forever bright and optimistic.
