Beth (bethorne) | 310 comments Mod
Hey, guys!!! Let's get to know each other a little bit in this thread before we get to know each other really well in Boozy Hangouts!

I'm Beth. I'm from Memphis. I read too much. I like John Krasinski and my drink of choice is usually a nice pinot noir. If you are cool enough to join this group, you are welcome to friend me here. And follow me on twitter.

YAY!

Marcie | 1 comments It's Marcie! Y'all know me.

So...I am finished reading, and I have thoughts and feels. Anyone else??


message 3: by CJ (new)

CJ (cjdf) Hi everyone,

I'm Carrie Jo (formerly known as The Plane Friend on LTT). I'm from Upstate New York. I read a ridiculous amount of YA books and I'm trying to publish my own YA book. My drink of choice is usually Pinot Grigio.

The library is still shipping my copy of the book, so I can't help you out yet, Marcie :)

I'm also happy to be GR friends, and I'd love more Twitter friends too (@CarrieJoDowd)


message 4: by Daria (new)

Daria | 1 comments Hey,
I'm Darja, pronounced Daria, I'm JelyBeanRainbow on twitter and TN.
I'm from Slovenia, Europe.
I just realized, while signing up for Goodreads, that I have no intention to read most of the books that were recommended, because I've seen the movies and wasn't that impressed. So I'm reading a biography written by a Bosnian/Swedish footballer who plays in France at the moment.
I drink only diet Coke and water.


message 5: by JanBreesmom (new)

JanBreesmom (goodreadscomjanbreesmom) | 3 comments Hi, I'm Jan...JanBreesmom online & on Twitter...and yes, Bree is really my daughter-or at least, the name she went by as a toddler (not so much anymore). I'm from southern California, I like to read. I do most of my reading with my Kindle or by audiobook...like to travel...I like just about all types of music...I play the piano. Not really much of a drinker, usually I stick to coffee or iced tea although I do enjoy a good drink when I go out. I'm looking forward to discussing books with you all. Sorry, I haven't yet started the first book.

Hey! I just added a spoilery thread so those who have finished can talk it out over there. I have yet to even START so...this is going well already. :)

Elise (eliserrr) | 25 comments Mod
Hey guys! I'm Elise. I live in Somerville, MA (just outside of Boston) and have a Channing Tatum problem. Also, a shoe problem. When I find a really good book, I tend to react like this. I'm working on a graphic novel, by which I mean I've drawn a few things and continue to fill moleskines with ideas. My book club drink of choice is malbec.


message 8: by Mel71 (new)

Mel71 | 1 comments I'm Mel from Indiana. Long time reader of LTT known around the twilight fandom as Melissa Twilightlover (so original!). Mother of two who loves to embarrass the family with my love of all things YA: Twilight, Mortal Instruments, Hunger Games, Divergent, etc.


message 9: by Emily (new)

Emily Anthon Hi all, I'm Emily, you may know me as emmeloowhoo. I'm downloading the book now. I love real books but am running out of room on my shelves and there is no room for another book case! So I will start reading soon. Current obsessions: tv shows graceland, doctor who and revenge... I'm a real fandom nerd and love Harry potter, LOTR, Sherlock, Star Trek and any other geeky thing. I am reading a couple of books right now, re-reading the hobbit, Life of Pi and an immortal instruments one, I'm not sure, it was hard to read.

Drink of choice Mountain Dew or water


message 10: by Keisha (new)

Keisha (keishabird) Hey y'all! I'm Keisha. You may know me from LTT/LTR as Keisha (talk about original!) or Keishabird from Twitter. I live in Iowa and am ready to read some good books! I love Guinness and Pimms Cup.

Hi I'm Bekah and I literally don't think I've been a part of a book club EVER so this is exciting for me.

What are we doing here? A/S/L?

30 (eek), Female, Live in Philly. Loves cats. Just starting commuting by train so I have a ton of time freed up to read. I've read like 5 books in the last month which is more than I've read in the last year, so this is exciting for me! I started Written in Red this morning and am excited to discuss it! I have stuff highlighted already because BEIGE TURTLENECKS


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

HI GUYS! I'm Elena. I live in southern CA. I'm 29. I have 5 kids (not a typo!!) and I work in social media. A job I got because I ran a successful Twilight blog. Who knew?! I have strong coffee and diet coke running through my veins which allows me to stay awake reading after I get 5 kids to bed though I probably "read" (via audiobook) the most on my 5 hour round trip commute to work daily. I just finished the second Game of Thrones book yesterday so I'll be starting something new ASAP!

Marissa Ard (heyitsmrsa) | 2 comments Hi guys! My name is Marissa and I'm from Fort Worth Tx! I followed LTT/LTR for awhile and now Im following that's normal. I am very much a creeper lol! I'm currently obsessed with cats , coffee, hair (I'm a hairstylist) and books! My drink of choice is coffee or a good peach bellini . I'm am so excited about this book club!


message 19: by Tiffany (new)

Tiffany (iamtgar) | 26 comments Mod
Oh heyyyy!! I'm Tiffany, 31 from Washington state. I recently went from being a full time makeup artist/ stylist to being a fake librarian (I manage 2 libraries in my area). Big change of pace. I still moonlight as a makeup artist though. I love me some YA, I'm excited for our book club. I don't drink (sad trombone) but I'm probably just as cray sober as y'all will be drinking. I'll be the DR (designated reader.) I'm @iamtgar in the twit world.

message 21: by Heidi (new)

Heidi | 1 comments hey there...I am Heidi from Brea, California. I am a former lurker from LTT/LTR, and I am loving That's Normal! I have been a writing professor for 17 years (that makes me really old!) and I am the mother of 3 boys...yes 3 boys, who of course, keep me on my toes. I am currently reading The Fault in Our Stars AND Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? so I have not started the first book club book...I may be really trying to catch up here. My obsessions are Divergent, The Maze Runner, Star Wars and Obi-Wan Kenobi (or is it Ewan McGreagor?) all things gluten-free (celiac) and Downton Abbey. I have been known to lose hours over Jane Austen. I have never been part of a book club, although having been an English major, honestly that's what those classes are...one big book club :) I will be drinking hard cider when we discuss.

Bekah, we went over this like 4 years ago haha yes 31 :(
People always think I am a little younger than I am (years of working in cosmetics make you super careful with your skin) but I never know if people think I am immature or just look young... hopefully this looking young thing will pay off in 15 years.


message 23: by Shalan (new)

Shalan | 8 comments Hi Hi! I am Shalan - that's Alan with Shhhh. I'm from Toronto, Canada (waves to fellow Canadian) and a longtime commentor/follower of LTT/LTR. I'm MrsKowski pretty much everywhere but on GR's. To be honest, I don't have any real obsessions at the moment but JZB and anything Fever related will have me dropping everything at any time. I have a 3 hour commute each day so while I don't read overly fast, I still manage to go through plenty of books. I get emotionally invested - I keeping meaning to seek help ;-) - in just about everything I read so I tend to be a little more picky about topics. Looking forward to sharing my crazy ...
My drink of choice is Rum & Coke but I don't discriminate!

Guys, this is so exciting how many people are already on board! So glad we did this.


message 25: by Becca (new)

Becca West | 10 comments Hi! I'm getting in on this even though I gotta finish up another book(Bekah got me started on The Fever Series!!) before I actually start this one.
I'm Becca from Arlington Tx. 34 yrs old and married with 3 kids and all that jazz. I'm Goldberrybecca on Twitter and on LTT back in the good old days.
I love to read just about everything and enjoy a nice espresso or cold coke depending on the time of day, and on occasion I throw back a mojito.
Can't wait to start the discussion!

Nikki, I love my crocs. But I'm well aware no one should take fashion advice from me, so I don't know if my support helps at all...


message 32: by Lavi (new)

Lavi | 3 comments Hi my name is Lavi. I've pretty much been a creeper in LTT/LTR and now on That's Normal. This is a big step for me to actually comment! I am 33 and live in the suburbs of Chicago. I love YA books, lots of tv shows, and watching movies at the theater. I am currently trying to eliminate diet pop from my diet. It's been tough. So I drink a lot of water. I know, boring. I also like wine and mojitos. And chips and salsa.

MC (mcecilia) | 130 comments Hi! I'm completely new and fail at Good Reads, so excuse me while I stumble around like a nearsighted person who lost her contacts...
I love to read but have too little time, so I'm probably only going to make sympathetic noises about this first book. I look forward to having lots of wine and intelligent comments by y'all,though!
Addition: Sorry, it occurred to me that this was a crappy introduction: I live in Sweden, I've been an LTT girl since June 2009, and I'm MariaCecilia/MeanieMary on Twitter if you want to find me there.

Suzanne (suzannedaley) | 1 comments Hello from the British Contingent..

I'm Suzanne , I'm from Liverpool and have severely neglected my Goodreads account this year. I read YA stuff mostly and usually stalk Beth's GR account or Beth herself, when deciding what to read next.
My claim to fame is actually living in Beatles former house, true story, You can Google it!

In a former life I was Robzanne on the secret blogs and twitter, I've now changed my handle to @suzannetheplan as my RL has started creeping in and I'm not so secret anymore.
I can't see me being able to join the monthly google hang out, I don't think we can handle 3 time zones, but I hate missing out and can post on here along the way.
I'm starting tonight

Marissa Ard (heyitsmrsa) | 2 comments Becca! I actually live in Arlington, I was raised in Fort Worth, so I say that because people almost always know where that is! I'm so excited I thought I was the line DFW ranger!

Guys, I am at the beach this week, and have been neglecting my goodreads account ... most of the time I am here every day, which is pathetic I know. I was a literature major a decade ago and what can I say? I miss college.

SO SO SO excited to see so many lurkers and new faces mixing with the familiar! This is gonna be zoppity.


message 40: by Rachel (new)

Rachel Blate | 2 comments Hey guys I'm Rachel, 30 almost 31! I go by rachel_b123 on twitter. I live just outside Philadelphia in the burbs. I am kind of disorganized so I can't promise I'll read every book in the book club but I will try to challenge myself to do it! Currently reading the second Game of Thrones book. Would never wear crocs for any reason whatsoever (sorry Nikki!) and let's see... booze of choice white wine or fruity vodka drinks! Let's DO THIS!


message 41: by Pitty (new)

Pitty | 3 comments Hi everyone! I'm Mercedes but eveyone calls me Pitty, I live in Panama (central america, not the one in Florida)and have never been a member of a book club or book disscussion kinda thing...so it a first for me but really excited! I read a lot of diffent stuff, but recently a friend has me hooked of YA and romance novels.
My drink of choice will depend on my mood at the time, but wine or vodka tonic will do the trick most of the time!


message 42: by April (new)

April Crain (abookishbabe) | 12 comments Hi all!!! I'm April! I live in Nor Ca, am 31 and have 3 daughters! I worked in the cosmetics industry for 6.5 years before I quit to become a stay at home mom... Don't get me wrong though... That's a job all in itself! I was a total bookworm growing up and as I got married and had kids I just got busy and didn't know what to read now that I was too old for The Babysitters Club... While on bed rest and bored and pregnant w my 3rd daughter in 6/08' a friend said I should read this book called Twilight... Well 3 days later I had finished Eclipse and thought... Why did I ever stop reading?!? 9 months pregnant I was at the midnight showing for twilight and 3 days later, Isabella Lynn was born. Yup. I have a Bella. No judgement. But thanks to twilight my love for reading was rediscovered! I love my Starbucks, Vampire Diaries and my favorite book series is Divergent although I do love some good smut. I am newly obsessed with Theo James and am looking forward to Bella going to kindergarten in the fall so I can get a part time job and work on my new website launching 7/1 trisandfour.com dedicated to Divergent!!! Excited to start meet and get to know everyone!!


message 43: by Dany (new)

Dany (danyspike) Hi! I'm Dany, I'm 28 years old and I'm from Chile. I joined the crazy (LTT/LTR) in 2008 and I fell in love with those crazy girls right then and there. Irrevocably. Even after I found out some of them wear crocs. If that's not love, I don't know what it is.
I love to read and crocheting, and my current obsession is Doctor Who and David Tennant, but I've been trying to take that one easy, since I need to function in RL, and it's impossible to do so while thinking only about the last episode I watched.
I'm a pseudo runner and I don't drink, but I get vicariously drunk when other people drink, so that's ok.
You can find me on twitter as DanySpike, I'd love to have you there! (warning: some of my tweets are in Spanish, but feel free to answer in any language you prefer :D )
Hugs to all!

I'm not going to be able to join in for the first book as I'm a freelance reviewer for a magazine and I'm buried in smut ATM, but hope to catch up for book 2. Provided it doesn't suck.

April, I have an Isabella (Ella) too, but she was born before SMeyer even dreamed up a meadow. But solidarity ... no judgement. :)
