Laura | 9707 comments Hey team, Welcome everyone!
I 'm Laura, your co-captain for this round of Towers! This has to be one of my favorite challenges.( okay.. maybe I do have a few favorites) I'm from Nova Scotia, Canada and have been playing team challenges for a while now. I enjoy mystery, YA, historical fiction and have been known to read just about anything( though I 'm not a huge fan of SF) I love bowling, hiking, kayaking, camping, reading and animals. I haven't read Harry Potter before so I am up for all the Harry Potter buddy reads; provided of course that I love the books. I am so looking forward to playing Towers VI with you all!

I've included the link to my towers shelf

Hello team!

I’m Danielle and I’m from Wales.

I think this is my 4th time playing TT.

Romance is my main genre (within many sub genres) of reading. I do like reading and fantasy, mystery/suspense and some sci-fi.

Hi Laura. On a team together again and another TT team too, I believe you were my captain a few TT’s ago.

I’ve only read the first three HP books, so maybe this will give me the incentive to finish the series.

Hi Danielle! Nice to see you again.
Yes, I think that was my first Towers.. Towers III. We went a little crazy signing up for all those buddy reads and BOM's. I'm afraid I'm already at it.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (Harry Potter, #1) by J.K. Rowling Behind Her Eyes by Sarah Pinborough Restore Me (Shatter Me, #4) by Tahereh Mafi The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy The Good Liar by Catherine McKenzie
ha, these are just to start off. Maybe I have a buddy read addiction; I do like to read and talk books.

SandyL | 4453 comments Hi fellow Newts!!!

I'm Sandy, your captain, erm....Prefect! I'm so excited for TT-VI to start. I'm from the Los Angeles area and I've done a bunch of NBRC (and other group) challenges included several tower teams. As for the Harry Potter books, it sounds like we're sorta in the same boat so far. I listened to a couple of the Harry Potter books many years ago, and I read books #1 and #2 within the past year. I'm looking forward to finishing the series.

My TT shelf - ttvi

I'll be putting info in the reserved spots above, and if there is anything that would be helpful to you for me to include, please let me know. Looking forward to a fun challenge!!!

Kim Anderson (kimmatski) | 1223 comments Hi guys! Looks like we've got a great team!

I'm Kim. I live in Illinois. I have a little guy that is 10 and 3 kitties. I like cats and reading pretty much anything (except historical and sometimes NF). I'm obsessed with HP and feel very puzzled that there are people in the world that haven't read the whole series yet. I'm working on rereading them all now with my son for the first time and it's so much fun. He's become just as obsessed as me. We are on Book 5. Looking forward to playing with you guys!


message 21: by Laura (new)

Laura | 9707 comments Hi Kim, I'm sure the reason I didnt read the series was because I probably felt like I was too old to read Harry Potter! I still feel that way:-)

message 26: by Erika (new)

Erika | 548 comments Hi Newts!!
I am a proud Hufflepuff and absolutely love HP. I have been trying to reread the series for a while so I’m definitely up for the buddy reads. I read just about anything. I’ve been loving non-fiction lately and am always happy to read YA. This is my second Tower event and i’m excited to get started ;)

I'm hoping so!
We will find out if I'm a true Hufflepuff; I guess... all this house business and stuff will make more sense to me once I read the series or at least I hope so. ( shh... my kids didn't read HP either)

I’ve no real reason why I haven’t finished the series. I enjoyed the three I read.

Hey Jennifer; welcome! You are in for a treat then because you will be able to read whatever you want for this challenge!


message 34: by SandyL (new)

SandyL | 4453 comments Welcome Danielle, Kim, Marie, Erika, Jennifer and, of course, Laura. We've only got a couple more people who need to check in - yay!

I can finally see! I went to the eye doctor this morning and he dilated my eyes - it took all day for me to be able to get back on the computer!


message 35: by Sassafrass (new)

Sassafrass (sass-a-frass) | 1142 comments Hi there! I've only read the first two HP books. I'm going to finish the series one day. I am from the suburbs outside of Philadelphia, PA and I've got a crazy busy schedule during the first half of the week. (M-W) and then things kind of slow down for me. So forgive me if if I'm not able to check in as much on those days.

Sallie(GeorgiaGirl) (shuga) | 774 comments Hello fellow Newts!!!
I live in Illinois also & Ive been a HP fan since the beginning when these books were first published. I'm not telling you how old I am because I feel age is just a number & I'm still having fun being a "kid" lol. I am really excited to play. Looking forward to this.
