About Me!

Welcome to the awesome part of the internet, featuring me.

My name is Krystianna and I'm a huge book nerd. My love for reading began in eighth grade when  I read The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. After that, I went online and did some research only to discover that the series belongs to a genre called dystopian. I immediately went crazy reading tons of dystopian books-I just couldn't get enough. Thus, Downright Dystopian was born in July of 2012. I created this blog to share my love of reading with others and to chat about books.

Now that you know my bookish history, here's some random facts about me:
-I'm a current college student, majoring in communications with a double concentration in media arts and graphic design, as well as a minor in English.
-I aspire to work in a publishing house one day, or at least work in a place that allows me to show my creativity and work with books.
-I love cities. Boston and San Diego are tied for my favorite.
-My favorite food is macaroni and cheese.
-My favorite shows include How I Met Your Mother, The 100, Reign, Stranger Things, The OA, and Parks and Recreation. Honestly, I watch so many shows on Netflix that I'd bore you if I listed them all.
-I'm a huge music junkie. I tend to listen to Imagine Dragons, Panic! at the Disco, Twenty One Pilots, The Lumineers, and other alternative bands. If you want any recommendations, feel free to send me an email!
