My name is Iffath, I'm 15 years old and I'm from Manchester, le UK. My blog, Painting With Words, used to be titled Love Reading X but I got bored of that.

I started this blog in October 2009, but didn't started blogging regularly until January 2010. At the time, I was reviewing books for the Manchester Book Award via a reading group at school. I was an avid reader of UK teen fiction site Chicklish, and one day decided to create a blog, to (I know this sounds cheesy) share my love for books, and meet other teens my age who like reading. AND OMG FREE BOOKS?!! Joke. I actually didn't know you could get books for review. I remember discovering blogs like The Mile Long BookshelfThe Beaucoup ReiewThe Sweet Bonjour, and Wondrous Reads and thinking "Dude, this is like a whole other world."

If I'm not here blogging, reading or hiding out in a bookstore, I'll most likely be:
 tweeting! (@deariffath I may be what you call addicted)
+ writing something ((poetry))
+ listening to music (All Time Low, 2AM Club, Paramore, The Maine, Taylor Swift, Mayday Parade, Lana Del Rey, acoustic Sleeping With Sirens)
+ drawing um, unicorns. or beaches.
+ baking. cupcakes oh ma gahhd.
+ gushing about something or the other. ALWAYS 
+ procrastinating

Any authors, publishers, readers etc are very welcome to contact me at: deariffath[at]gmail[dot]com.

Thank you for reading my blog, even if you just stumbled upon it by accident.
