Today I’ll be sharing 25 bookish facts about me! I’ve seen this tag floating around on Booktube and book blogs, so I wanted to do it too. I hope you enjoy!
1.) My Hogwarts House is Ravenclaw, my Ilvermorny House is Wumpus and my Patronus is a White Swan.

4.) I’ve met authors: Anne Rice, Jay Kristoff, Amie Kaufman, Angie Thomas and Melissa Keil.
