      I’m a very eclectic person – reading, music, hobbies, it’s all a very eclectic mix of stuff that makes me the person I am. I don’t like to fit in to pigeon holes or boxes; I like to just be! I’ll generally try and read any genre or author once – sometimes I’ll give them a second try if I don’t like something. I think I’m like this because I don’t want to feel I’ve missed out on anything!
