Today is the day! This post was originally going to go live in three days but I could not hold my excitement in any longer and rescheduled it to today. And I’m sure glad I did because I’m practically dancing and singing in excitement here.
Anyway. Who is this Celine, and who is this Larissa, you ask? Well, just below they have introduced themselves!
“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in life. And I am horribly limited.” -Sylvia Plath
The above quote really speaks to me and is a favorite of mine. I love reading books and can’t get enough. Each one is an unique adventure, told by a person who isn’t myself. They have their own voice and it allows you to in a way be somebody else, who may be totally different from yourself. There’s just so many possibilities. And that’s why I’ve loved reading ever since I was 10 and picked up the first Harry Potter book.
I’m not exactly sure what to say. Haha well guess I better start with my name, I’m Larissa. I’m Canadian. I’m 17 as of the 24th of January. I have two brothers, I’m in the middle child. I play field hockey and volleyball. I love to travel, definitely want to see as much as the world as possible. If I could travel to any time it’d be the roaring twenties. Supernatural is probably my favorite TV show. I’ve really been loving historical fiction lately. I’m an adrenaline junkie. I can spend forever on tumblr. I’m an Ben & Jerry’s addict.
Alright, I think that’s enough random information then even I’d like to read. I’m so excited to be joining this blog and can’t wait to interact with everyone. 😀
I am so excited to blog with these girls. Some of you know Celine from her own blog, The Book Shimmy. She’s been a good friend of mine for a few months now and thought it would be so fun to blog with her! I actually did not know Larissa until very recently when she sent me a crazily sweet friend request on Goodreads. Please note that she is a co-reviewer so she won’t be around as much as Celine and I. These two have already started working on posts and will officially start next week! Whoot!
And as a last note, I’d like to thank all the people who sent in an application. I did not expect so many and I took a lot of consideration into this. Also, huge thanks to everyone who RT’d about my search for a co-blogger(s) and all the people who even included it in their posts on their blogs! Love you all. <33
