Continuing with the island idea, I thought a beach could be a cool place to start.
Or in other words introduce each other.
Hi,
I`m Oda am 25 and There are lots of hyped books I have not read yet. In addition I am norwegian(hence my "strange name"). I`m also studying to be a librerian.
V. E scwabe being among them. Yes..Well soon I will read it with you guys to be in on the fun.

;; (sheisreadingg) Hi, I'm Cri and I come from Italy. Never read any of Victoria Schwab's books and many others hyped ones. I also have never done a buddy read, so I'm pretty exicted about that :)

Carrie (brightbeautifulthings) (brightbeautifulthings) Hi! I'm Carrie, and I'm 28. I live in the USA. I'll read anything that sounds good, but I gravitate toward a lot of YA and horror. I've read the Monsters of Verity duology, but I have tons more Schwab on my TBR. Thanks for inviting me! <3

I have a good feeling about this group.

Anna Wayland (annabonaparte) | 21 comments Hi! I'm Anna, 16, and from São Paulo, Brazil! I have plans to study abroad (btw Norway is included in my plans so Oda, if you could teach me Norwegian that would be great) but so far I'm just trying to balance school and reading. Oh and something very important about me is that I love winter and snow makes me happy


⋆✩ Mary ✩⋆ (marya28) | 104 comments Heyy guys!
I’m Mary and I’m 19 years old (soon to be 20 yay).
I live in London and I’m currently taking a gap year and hopefully will be going to university in September; I’m working full time atm. Also, I recently found out that my personality type is INFJ!
I have an unconditional love for boooks and food. I’m happy to read anything that I find interesting. 🤗

Oh, you want to study in Norway fun. Study in Norway as in a year, a semester or a whole degree? If you love winter you probably want to go to Tromsø or Bodø? Both have good studies. I`m happy to teach you norwegian.

My name is Nicole. I am 18 and from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Reading is like my favorite thing in the world and like the rest of you I also have not read any V.E Schwab books and I am ridiculously excited about this buddy read!
PS: And Oda, like Anna I too am obsessed with Norway! I so wanna live there someday. What can I say? I just fucking love Skam and I am still in mourning

Haha! Fun that both brasilians are interested in Norway. I suppose "everybody" is obseesed with norway after Skam`s sucsess.

How can you not? Honestly, Skam kind of opened my eyes to how great a country Norway is! You're lucky to live there :)
And Skam is such a great series! By the way, I have a major crush on Herman Tommeraas (even though I still can't pronouce his name lol) and I hope to marry him someday. Another reason why I wanna go to Norway haha

Hehe.. Fun.. Well I`m not Skam obsessed(:O) Yes there are people that dont care. I liked season 4 but dont love it. I do think its fun how big of a phenomenon it is.

It is pretty awesome what happened and I also didn't really like season that much. My favorites are seasons 1 and 3.

Jupp. The whole world has obsessed over it. Even though its set in norway and in norwegian, apparently norwegian teens resonate all over. But maybe move the chat over to the chat thread? Have this be the " hello my name is.. " place.

Hehe.. No it was meant as the introduction thread. Its fine for now but dont want it too much off topic for too long.


message 29: by Victoria (new)

Victoria Zigler (toriz) | 141 comments Hi. *waves*

I'm Victoria, though I also go by Tori. I don't really mind which you use.

I'm a 33 year old blind vegetarian animal-loving poet and children's author, originally from Wales, UK, now living in England, UK. I moved from the mountains to the beach, as it happens. Haha!

I'm not very good at keeping up with what the most popular books or movies are, so often haven't read or watched whatever is most popular at any given time. In fact, though I spend a lot of my non-writing time either reading or watching TV, I still don't seem to find the time to read all the books I want to, and am even more behind on movies and TV shows.

So, that's me. Um... Nice to meet you all.

Yep. Been what my brother calls "properly vegetarian" for about nine years, but had what he calls "vegetarian phases" on and off since I was about six years old.
