Hi! I'm Hannah, I'm the blogger behind Miss Daydreamer's Place and, as you've probably already worked out, that's me in the above photos. So what else can I tell you about myself? Well... I'm 28 years and I'm from Birmingham which is in the heart of England. I've lived there all my life apart from when I studied English Literature and Linguistics at the University of Manchester for three years and I now work as a Library Assistant.
I've adored reading ever since I was an infant and the genres that I'm especially interested in are 19th and early 20th century classics, fantasy and sci-fi, mysteries, historical fiction, poetry, and the occasional contemporary novel. I write this blog purely for fun and because I want to record my thoughts on the various books that I read and to interact with other readers. I mainly write reviews on this blog but I also like to make lists (for example my Top Ten Tuesday posts) and to talk about my other interests from time to time.
Apart from reading I also enjoy baking, travelling, going to the theatre, watching films and TV shows, drinking tea, rainy days, putting on make-up, and general fangirling ;)
Just a few(!) of my favourite things:
Writers: Jane Austen, the Brontes, Edith Wharton, Shakespeare, Arthur Conan Doyle, C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Neil Gaiman, Susanna Clarke, and J.K. Rowling.
Films: The Fall, Star Wars, The Princess Bride, Brooklyn, Gladiator, The Shawshank Redemption, Inception, Hugo, Sense and Sensibility, Les Miserables (2012), and quite a lot of Disney films.
TV Shows: Avatar, Stranger Things, Sherlock, Doctor Who, Merlin, Firefly, Pushing Daisies, and quite a lot of standalone period dramas (North and South 2004 being my number one favourite).
Musicals: Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera (both the Andrew Lloyd Webber and the Yeston and Kopit versions), The Color Purple, Elisabeth, Wicked, Beauty and the Beast, Into the Woods, Oliver, and The Lord of the Rings.
Web Series: The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, Nothing Much To Do, From Mansfield with Love, and Elinor and Marianne Take Barton.
And finally some other bits of info that you might find interesting:
- I'm a non-denominational Christian. This isn't a "preachy" blog though in case you're wondering. I might talk about my beliefs from time to time but this is really a blog that just so happens to be written by a Christian rather than a Christian blog.
- I'm an INFJ and an Enneagram 9w1 if you're interested in that sort of thing.
- I'm an oldest child as I have a brother who's three years younger than me.
- And I think that's pretty much it...
