Kai Moore-Austen (mxmarmite) Hey everyone, I'm Kai, I'm 24 at the end of the month. I was always a good reader from a small child but didn't like reading until I was 8 and really fell in love with the Harry Potter series. This year I am at 51 books so far, which is 6 more than my overall total for last year, and my goal each year now is to just read more than the year before. Finding this group means hopefully I will find more books to read!

Mostly I listen to audiobooks, as due to chronic pain and restlessness I struggle to sit down with a print book anymore. I have read in total one print book this year which took me nearly 3 months.

I love a challenge and have dealved into more genres than I thought I would before with the help of the PopSugar Reading CHallenge this year, and now have a love for true crime as well as a renewed love for science fiction. Honestly I will read most things, as long as the topic isn't too triggering for my mental health (I have C-PTSD among other things).

So yeah, that's me. I look forawrd to spending more time around the group, looking forward to more books to add to my pile!

Despite all the issues with Rowling, I still love the series, and feel I love it separately! Honestly, I had no interest in reading, even though I could until I went to a Brownie camp (I was AFAB), I went in 9 pages into the Philosophers Stone, then came back 2 nights later 9 pages from the end!
