hello! i’m louise
I’m an autistic MA graduate from North East England who has a passion for books and movies. I read and watch pretty much every genre under the sun because it’s one of the only things I’m not picky about. And I’m picky about a lot of things. My passion for books has always been there since I’ve been reading since an incredibly early age and was usually a reading level or two above my classmates at school. Not that I’m bragging about it. Even though I’ve fallen away from reading a few times throughout my childhood, I started to pick it up properly again when I was eleven and made my school library a second home.
As well as books, I also love TV shows, especially those that are animated, and video games, which I’ve also enjoyed since a very young age. Everything I do in my life is because I started doing it a long time ago #funfact.
When I’m not reading, I can be found buying more books, watching movies, playing video games, tweeting everything that pops into my head, or annoying my pets.
