Okies. My turn.
Goodness, I feel incredibly young here. I'm four-and-ten years old and I'm
still studying. Aiming to be a vet. (I love animals!) There're' Toppy and
Eveie (Topaz and Valentine Eve, who're born on 13 Feb, 4 years old now), my
rabbits, whom I adopted... about 3 years or so ago from the House Rabbit
Society of Singapore. Goodness. Time does seem to fly!
Anyway, I love reading. Mostly fantasy stuff. I was reading Will of the
Empress (again) by Tamora Pierce. And before that, it was The Pinhoe Egg and
The Game, by our DWJ =). And previous to that... The Riddle, think, by
Alison Croggon. And *before *that, The Tide Knot, by Helen Dunmore. And my
favourite book (since the start of 2006) is Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer. I
love Twilight! It's one of the best vampire roamnces there ever was! (It's
YA, not llike Anita Blake etc.)
Well, that's about all.
