I’m a Judge

Hello everyone ?

My name is Zitong and I am a thirteen year old Chinese-Australian boy who lives in Victoria.

I like reading(obviously) all kinds of different books from the latest YA and even some classics. Some of my favourite books, not only including YA are Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, Jordan’s Wheel of Time and Erikson’s Malazan Book of the Fallen. From these book titles(if you have heard of them) show that I’m a massive Epic Fantasy fan. Some of my favourite YA books are Mass’ Throne of Glass, Lu’s Legend and Clare’s Shawdowhunter Chronicles.

I also consider myself a musician and I play the Piano, Violin and jam with the school rock band once a week on Bass Guitar. This may seem weird, but my favourite genre of music is Classical which may draw sighs, but trust me, Classical Music is amazing! For those of your who don’t know where to start, maybe try these composers; Sibelius; Mendelssohn; Debussy; and Brahms. Furthmore, I also don’t mind Jazz and some modern stuff, though I can’t stand rap, metal and most of pop.

I’m also a bit of a history buff and like all things history which includes historical fiction! In fact, my of my recent favourite reads was Pillars of the Earth, though that book is definitely adult and not YA. I just like history, deal with it. ?

Some of my pet peeves are people who don’t read, don’t write, and only play video games/watch Netflix(meaning that they don’t read) and also really annoying book characters who keep complaining and get nothing done.

Well, that’s a bit about me!

I also have a Goodreads where I write book reviews at – https://www.goodreads.com/user/show/77983193-zitong-ren

Do you mean Netflix? Classical music is definitely a genre with its merits. Mas, Clare and Lu, I'm in heaven. Any genre is allowed here! A fellow history buff. You're definitely going to fit in here (=

That’s wonderful! Clair de Lune is actually one of my favourite pieces. I’m currently learning the Passepied from the same suite.

It's cool you play bass guitar! I've always wanted to try bass - I play acoustic which I love. :)
