Impressions from the reading life

Get to know me

So, this is what the cool kids on BL have been doing while I was asleep. Enjoy, and feel free to join the fun!


1. Are you named after anyone?  
Nope. My mum insists she woke up one lovely Sunday morning knowing my name would be Samantha.
2. When was the last time you cried?
I shed a tear this very morning. I read on Twitter about the saviour of the lovely "Word on the Water" bookbarge in London. Yep, I'm prone to tears.

3. Do you have kids?

4. If you were another person would you be a friend of yourself?
I do have my qualities :)

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot?
Moi? Jamais.

6. Will you ever bungee jump?
No! I might be weird, but I'm not insane.

One younger brother.

I'll never grow up, obviously.
