Nahari Lippman | 4 comments Hi,

My Name is Nahari (My real name is "Phil" btw) and here's a little bit about me:

- I am 22 (turning 23 this year)
- I am from The Philippines
- I guess I can read any type of book (YA is cool but the type of books that enchants me is the Historical Fiction type)
- I watch netflix from time to time. (Favorite series Gilmore Girls and Timeless*)
- I play video games
- Spicy and sweet foods are my thing.
- My reading goal is to read 20 books this year (currently at 5)

Random stuff:
- I graduated with a degree in History.
- Yep, my currently reading list is crazy. I just can't keep the momentum of some books, but at least I won't DNF them.
- I am a registered school teacher, It's currently the application months in the Philippines and I'm waiting for calls from the schools' HR.
- I went to Australia last march (Sydney and Canberra) I liked Sydney the most! I went to Dymocks and the other Bookstore just nearby (I can't remember the name) We came to Australia to visit my two aunts who live in Ultimo.

William Macias (willdoggdotcom) Hello everyone, my name is Will and I am from Southern California.

I enjoy mostly reading non-fiction (science, philosophy, history, etc.) but have been getting into some fiction lately.

When it comes to TV, I am an avid watcher of 80's and 90's television. From Saved by the Bell to Full House, and Ducktales, I can have a fun conversation and trivia about these TGIF and Disney Afternoon programming.

I just finished the current season of Black Mirror, definitely a great critique of current topics in a Twilight Zone style.

Grace | 4 comments Hey guys,

I live in Canada. For the past year or so I've been obsessed with YA Fantasy but I'm going through a slump, especially after participating in a group challenge. It really drained me and I have only managed to read two books in April, neither of which were YA Fantasy - Outlander and The Duke and I. I've read 32 books out of a goal of 40. I'm open to reading most genres.
