I handle the YA book blog Bites and love reading YA. I just don't have the patience for door stoppers. I also write YA and I have a manuscript on submission to agents as I type.
Other than that, I currently have 3 very large tattoos, my newest being a thigh piece. I'm 27 and I work as an commercial insurance underwriter during the day. Don't get jealous now.
I love reading nearly anything horror, especially old school YA horror. I'm starting to re-collect those old RL Stine and Christopher Pike books. I wish the market had more like those now! But I'll take what I can get. I also like fantasy and I've gotten more and more into "realistic" fiction just to break away from the fantasy. I think my tastes have really rounded out!

If I could be any character I'd be (and why?)
Bella Swan so I could give her the spine she so desperately needs.
And then maybe Alyss from The Looking Glass Wars because she always has Hatter Madigan following her around. He could certainly follow me around and I'd be perfectly fine with it!
If I was stranded on a desert island and could only bring 3 books, I'd bring
