Why hello there, wonderful human! I see that you have decided to learn more about the half-human, half-fish creature behind this blog, so welcome to my little grotto of book madness.
I’m your 19-year-old, resident Mermaid who goes by the name of Sherlyn. Many have mangled and misspelled this moniker, but I am still glad that my parents did not name me Valerie. If your parents named you Valerie and you happen to be reading this, please know that I have nothing against you.
I live in Singapore, the land of eternal summer—courtesy of our dear equator. The tropical weather is lovely, but I particularly detest the hotter months. Paired with the humidity, everything is reduced to a boiling mess. So I simply adore days when I can curl up with a book and have raindrops dancing across the window.
Apart from reading, I get along fin-tastically with my camera in my never-ending bid to capture life's precious moments (and books). I love anything Disney and am a proud Gryffindor on Pottermore. I am Piscean, which means I can probably read your mind (nah, I'm just pulling your
finleg). I also enjoy watching ABC’s Once Upon A Time and attempting to prevent whatever is left of my beginner français from evaporating (the intermediate class never kicked off at school because a substantial number of human beings decided not to sign up for it). My most recent hobbies include photomanipulation, painting with watercolour pencils and hand-lettering.
As you can probably tell by now, my social life consists mostly of hanging out with cetaceans and fictional characters. I also tend to overuse parentheses and fish puns. I will usually pick nursing a book hangover at home over going shopping or to a party (read: introvert). Sometimes I think I may have lost my barnacles, but someone once told me a secret: All the best people are.
(If you get that reference, you totally deserve a kelpcake!)
