Hello! I’m Olivia, a 16-year-old girl living in the mid-western United States. I adore books, specifically Young Adult fiction, and anything related to them. I will never have enough books or bookish merchandise. I don’t really watch TV shows or movies, but I love the show Shadowhunters and I can’t resist a Disney or Harry Potter movie night. My favorite movie is the 2007 Hairspray. When I’m not reading I enjoy playing video games, although my tastes are limited because they’re generally not my strong suite. My favorites are Super Mario 3D World and Splatoon, though I also love Legend of Zelda: Windwaker and am partial to almost any Nintendo game. I don’t listen to a bunch of music either (yes, I know I’m an odd teenager, hahah) but I love Taylor Swift and Bea Miller, as well as Disney soundtracks and Hairspray songs. One thing that is normal about me is that I love social media, though I’d choose a book over my favorite platform any day. I have a tendency to overuse emojis, and the unicorn is probably my favorite. I love unicorns and I’m not ashamed of that fact. 😛
Some of my favorite books/series are His Fair Assassin by Robin LaFevers, Vampire Academy and Bloodlines by Richelle Mead, Unicorn Tracks by Julia Ember, The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare, Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan, A Darker Shade of Magic by V.E. Schwab, The Upside of Unrequited by Becky Albertalli, Queens of Geek by Jen Wilde, The Gentleman’s Guide to Vice and Virtue by Mackenzi Lee, Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas, My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand et al, and Of Fire and Stars by Audrey Coulthurst.
I’m shy and introverted, but once you get to know me I tend to ramble (as you can probably tell), especially if books are involved. In general I’m just a really quirky, optimistic person, and if you don’t mind that, I’d love to be friends! You can find me on Instagram, Twitter, and Goodreads.
And finally, a bit about my blog. “Heir of Glitter” was inspired by a book in one of my (then) all-time favorite series, Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas, and my love for glitter. When I first made this back in September 2015, my favorite book was Queen of Shadows, but I thought “Queen of Glitter” sounded too girly. So instead I opted for my second favorite, Heir of Fire, and then my blog was born. It’s a combination of books, life, and other random posts. 🙂
I hope you enjoy my blog, and have a fabulous day/night! ❤
