message 1: by Maggie (new)

Maggie Of course, I'd want to know a bit more about everyone. <3 So when you join, make sure to come here and write a bit about yourself. Like that, we can find reading buddies easily and know what each other are like!
You can tell us your name, your age, your country of origin, the genres you like the most, and something else you like about books or another passion! You can write more if you want, and those are just ideas. You don't have to tell us all that.
Now, I will present myself :)

I'm Maggie, 16 years old girl who lives in Canada. (It's winter right now and I'm hating it...)
I like young adult books, thrillers and mysteries. I also love fantasy, but a bit less. One reason why I started this book club is because I want to explore more genres.
Except books, I like organization and Biology. I'm looking forward to join the Army when I finish school :)

That's about it! <3


message 2: by lorien (new)

lorien Hello! I'm Lorien Rhys, also a teenager currently going though the big ninth grade now >.<, I love books that relate to magic, abilities, mostly fantasy, well written historical fiction, or just anything that has a good plot and story with sensational writing!
I can't wait to be a part of this group. ^.^


message 3: by Catherine (new)

Catherine (catherine_mooncakes) Hey! I'm Catherine, a Texan teenager. I love reading, writing, roleplaying, gaming, singing, and dogs! My favorite books generally are Dystopias with fantasy. (Keeper of the Lost Cities, Harry Potter, the Unwanteds, The Giver, Ranger's Apprentice, etc.)
You can thank Lorien for inviting me to the group :)


message 4: by [deleted user] (last edited Feb 11, 2017 11:42AM) (new)

I'm Raevyn. (Yes, I'm also a teenager. Lol.) My favorite genres (well, subgenres) are dystopian and tragedy, but I'll read nearly any genre as long as the book sounds good. I enjoy writing, drawing (but I'm bad at it...) and cooking.


message 5: by Skyril (last edited Feb 11, 2017 12:03PM) (new)

Skyril Hullo, I'm Skyril ~cough~sorrynotateenager~cough~

I'm a pluviophile!
I'm also a writer :]
And a gamer, though not avid. Mostly, these days I just play Fire Emblem and Legend of Zelda. My two favorite game series ever.

I love YA most of all, especially Fantasy, but I also enjoy some Classics, especially Jane Austen, Children's, some Christian Fiction, and a little bit of Mystery.

My favorite series of all time is Skulduggery Pleasant by Derek Landy.
Other books/series I love include:
Sabriel by Garth Nix
Ranger's Apprentice by John Flanagan
and Mistborn by Brandon Sanderson [though I have yet to read the sequels!]

I'm also a little bit of a grammar nerd.

...

~Lorien and Raevyn give me strange looks~

... What?

........ ~coughs~ Just can't seem to clear my throat....

~continues getting strange looks~

Ok, fine, a lot-a-bit. xD But at least I'm not Grammar Hitler. I only correct your grammar silently. ~halo~

I also watch tv. Movies and shows. Way... too many... shows... o.o

And, you know, I might like html a little too much.
Plus I like baking. :3

Ok, I'm gonna stop now.


message 6: by Sheila (new)

Sheila G (foalsfictionandfiligrere) Hey all. I'm also, not a teenager, and feel old...as I'm turning 26 in a few days.

I love reading, painting, and I'm currently co-authoring a sci-fi/fantasy series with a friend of mine. We are hoping (if all goes well) to have book 1 out by next year!

Other than that, I'm a wife, mother, and artist.

Favorite genres: fantasy, YA (because I don't care for much vulgarity and sexuality), historical fiction (some), art-related books, Christian fiction and, yeah, some different books here and there. Whatever catches my eye.


message 7: by Lizzie (new)

Lizzie Lashbrook (lizzielashbrook) Hi! I'm Lizzie (an 18 yr old )and I live in Pa. I like pretty much all book genres. Some of my favorite genres are novels, mysteries, and technology. :)


Dasha ~Made of bad materials, yet well put together~ (iliketoreadangryreviews) こんいちは and Bonjour!I'm Dasha. My favorite novels usually tend to be YA, but I love fantasy novels of all ilk. Though I do love manga as well. I'll read anything that interests me, though. I do tend to be very adverse to ones that don't, sadly.

I am learning French (I learning it at an intermediate level and I can understand it well) and Japanese (I'm still a beginner :3).

I enjoy playing video games, mostly Pokemon and Kirby games. I really love music, Japanese rock music and Visual Kei is my major passion, currently. I could talk for hours about music... but I love to hear what other people have to say just as much.

Psh. You're definitely not a Grammar Hitler. *cough cough* Despite the way *cough* you *cough* have us answer your *cough* grammar polls. ; )


message 10: by Hanna (last edited Feb 11, 2017 01:19PM) (new)

Hanna Hi, I'm Hanna, originally known as CutePolarBear. I'm homeschooled, and live in the country. I, a new self-published author, enjoy reading, writing, playing the banjo, and listening to music. My favorite genres are historical fiction and clean, Christian romance.


message 11: by Willa (new)

Willa Valentine (paper.seas) (paperseas) Hey! I'm Willa, from the US, a bookstagrammer and reader. I've recently been trying to get a deeper understanding of the books I read, so I read less than I used to. I'm also struggling to write, as my style is really in depth and hard to make clear points with. My main focus is to get to understand the way great books are written and what components make them marvelous so that I can apply the same lessons to my own stories! (If you have any tips on notating books, all are appreciated :D) I love reading historical fiction, YA, and realistic fiction. Besides reading and writing, I'm a bit of a history buff and photography nerd, and I have an Instagram for books @bowonthebooks (the link is in my bio). Anyway, I'm always interested in book clubs and am excited to join this one and meet new people while discussing excellent books!

That's all for now XD
-- Willa


message 12: by Susan (new)

Susan (iamsusaniguess) | 13 comments Salutations! I'm Susan, nineteen years of age. My favorite kinds of books used to lie within the YA genre but I'm finding more and more than the protagonists irritate me, so I've been broadening my horizons and I've found that I much prefer dark, poignant novels that explore morality, the thin line between good and evil, and what it is to be human. The more poetic and macabre, the better.


message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

hello! my name is asia and i am thirteen. tbh, i believe that i will be the youngest one in this group.

i started getting more into books last year. and since i wanted to express and show my love for books, i started a bookstagram not too long ago (@asiareads). my favorite ya genre is definitely fantasy. though i do not mind what kind of genre my books are, i tend to enjoy fantasy more (with a teeny bit of romance!).

for when i am bored, enjoy watching kdrama, youtube, and netflix. thank you willa for inviting me! <3


message 14: by Graeme (new)

Graeme Rodaughan Hi all, I'm Graeme. I'm into Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Thrillers, etc. I'm probably the oldest in the group at 52.

I like to discuss both books and writing.


message 15: by Samantha (new)

Samantha | 1 comments Hi, I'm Samantha. I love YA books and anything that is super character driven. Characters are my favorite part of any book and I'm a writer so I try to write character strong books :). I'm a Whovian and a Potterhead and I just started watching Orphan Black which I am ridiculously in love with. I joined the group to find out about new books and to meet other readers :)

message 28: by Emily (new)

Emily | 3 comments Hello! I'm Emily and this group looks fun. Hopefully I can keep up with all of the chats and monthly books, but we'll see. I'm not a teenager, but I'm still young. I'm in college studying English and graduation is coming too fast! I love to read (hence the degree) and do a little bit of writing. I also do copy editing, and I have a blog called Zerina Blossom's Books where I read and review books all the time. I was homeschooled and then went to two tiny Christian schools growing up, and I'm from the country, though I live in the city now. And yes, I am a Christian. I also enjoy everything artistic, from sketching to singing to sewing. It's good to meet you all!

Autumn Slaght Hello! My name is Autumn, I'm a teenager, perhaps an older one, but a teenager nonetheless and my country of origin is the USA. :) I'm a published author and aspiring musician. My favorite genres? Well, I love reading Christian inspiration fiction like Karen Kingsbury and people along those lines, but I'd have to say my other favorite genre is Christian non-fiction, books written by Dannah Gresh or Sarah Mally, especially. ^.^

Skyril, I can't believe I found another pluviophile/writer who corrects people's grammar, watches way too many movies/shows, and likes to bake!! That's totally awsome! ♥
