Eli's Weekly Post -1
Hello! So, my poll results came in and it appears above everything else (contests, reviews, interviews...) you guys would like to know a little bit more about me! I'm actually very flattered and would love to answer any questions you ask. So... please do comment with questions!
As a result of this Poll, I am going to be posting a weekly "Update" post to let you guys know whats going on with me. I will eventually have a set day to do this on, but as of now it is random. Anyways-- here are a few things about The Tainted Poet!
My basic Bio:
My name is Elise, but I go by Eli (which is pronounced Ellie). I am a nineteen year old college student who lives in the southeast. Besides my love for reading and reviewing, my other hobbies consist of Civil War Reenacting, sewing, drawing, writing and painting. I like the arts in general. Darren Shan is one of my favorite authors and it is because of him that I got into reading. My favorite genres are paranormal and fantasy, though I do love the occasional Chic-lit book. I am a very friendly person, so feel free to shoot me an email any time at: firstname.lastname@example.org. That email is made particularly for this blog and I check it daily.
My Update: Ok! Since this is an update post, I really do want to post some sort of update, haha. Well, it's 4:30ish AM on July 15th and I just got back from seeing... Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. It turned out pretty well, though I can't say it was amazing in particular. I am actually very curious how it seemed to someone who has yet to read the book. What are your opinions? Because of the fact I read the book, I obviously knew everything that was happening and I think it would have been more fun to have been experiencing it for the first time. I think I might have liked it a bit more, though I really did enjoy it. It was very funny actually, which was something I didn't expect.
Anyways, while at the theater, I saw a poster for The Gemma Doyle Trilogy which I thought was interesting. It wasn't a movie poster, though I know that it has plans to eventually become a movie, but more of an ad for the books. Anyways, just thought I would share! Anyone else see this around their theaters?
Well, like my sidebar says, I am currently reading Prophecy of the Sisters by Michelle Zink and I have to say I absolutely love it so far. It has already hit some book stores (its release date is set at August 1st), so if I were you I would go out and check! I have seen it and it is absolutely gorgeous.
Well that pretty much wraps up my very first Update post. But I want to end with this note: I have a contest coming up very soon, so if I were you I would keep checking back! ;)
