About Me

I have started and deleted at least 369428 drafts of this “about me page” who knew writing about yourself would be so freaking!! hard!! At this point, whatever you’re reading now is just words that are flowing out my brain and into the computer...

Hello there my name is Amena and I go by the pronouns she/her and I blog at Nerd in New York. I loved reading ever since I picked up a retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears when I was six. From then on I would have a book on me everywhere–while I was eating, walking too elementary school, and sometimes even in the bathroom.

But books aren’t the only things I like. I also am a musicophile (it’s a real word according to Urban Dictionary okay). I listen too just about anything that sounds good to my ears regardless of language, so if you have any good artists don’t hesitate too comment!

I also love watching anime, k-drama’s, good angsty teenage shows about life, so please drop some recommendations hehe!

I know that a huge stereotype of a book lover is that we are introverted and prefer to stay home, but I think this is a pretty dumb notion. No two people can be exactly alike right? As for me, I would say I’m a comfortable person too talk to, and I do like spending time outside. I’m a adrenaline junkie so I love playing sports, going on roller-coasters, doing obstacle courses etc…

My favorite genres: fantasy, contemporary, mystery, and thriller.

My favorite authors: Abigail Johnson, Sarah Dessen, Anna-Marie McLemore, Maggie Stiefvater

Favorite shows: Demon Slayer, The Umbrella Academy, Modern Family, Fresh off the Boat, The Office etc…

Favorite Artists: Keshi, Joji, Niki, Rich Brian, Rei Ami, Wallows, Clairo, Crush, Dean, Maye, BIBI, Lorde, Lana Del Ray, Conan Gray, Taylor Swift

I love talking too people so if you want to talk, fangirl whatever just leave a comment and your blog (if you have one) so I can check you out too!
