Hi! My name is Carly and this is my first ever official book club that I have been a part of... EXCITING!!! I love my dogs, books and nature. I have an unread shelf a mile long (probably quite literally) and have a book buying problem.

Hey guys :D

I'm Maddie, 20 years old and from New Zealand.
My shelves are rather confusing, as all of the books I own but haven't read I've marked as 'read' so that my 'want-to-read' is just full of books I want that I haven't read/owned XD More for gift-giving purposes.
I'm in many book clubs but, like Brittany, I'm not the best with reading the BOM's. In this case I will definitely make an effort though, what with being a mod :p

So excited to get this group off the ground :D This is my first time creating a book club.

✦ Maica ✦ (maicacruz) | 8 comments Helloooo! I guess so far I'm the baby of the group :p My name is Maica! I'm a 18 year old student from the Philippines. I'll be entering college in August. My favorite genres are contemporary, fantasy and historical fiction!

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | -263 comments Mod
Yay thanks Maica! :D

You'll have a fun time this first month then if you choose to read the BOM :p

Nicole's Book Diaries (nicolesbookdiaries) | 3 comments Hello!!! I'm so excited to be here! I'm Nicole and I just...really like to read XD My favorite genres are YA, Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Dystopian, Sci Fi. Honestly, I'll read any genre or book. I just have to be in the mood for it.

I have never read a BOM before. I've been trying but something always happens when I try to read the BOM for the clubs I'm active in. I've either read the book, don't have it, didn't acquire it on time or forgot about it. I know...I'm horrible. But I've been trying to read one and I will definitely try to read the BOM for this group.

That's also why we are finishing up the polls and picking the books a week before the next month so that people have time to get the books :) Glad to have you here!

message 14: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | -263 comments Mod
Me too XD I don't think that'll be a genre because no one will likely suggest it :p

Hopefully xD I think we'll mostly be reading YA


message 16: by Maddie (new)

Maddie (maddisonbruce) | -263 comments Mod
Yeah which is fine by me :p Never have enough YA.

I'm going to actually purchase all of our BOMs so that I can own the books from a club I helped create. It'll be real awesome.

I love YA :p And yeah, that would be a great self idea. If I ever made a book club I would like to buy all the BOM

Just hopefully the book club sticks around XD

I really want to rearrange my shelves but don't have the room to rearrange them how I want them.

Kadi P (kadi_p) | 10 comments Hi all! I'm Kadi! I'm a student so I don't have a lot of time to read anymore but I can't wait for summer when I can. Glad the first BOM will be in July hopefully my work load will be decreasing then.

Thanks for inviting me to this book club Mads :)
I'm excited to start reading some great books.
I love to read (seems obvious to me but I might as well clarify it) and although I am sceptical of a few genres I'd still love to try all kinds of books!

I'm a big big fan of mystery and thrillers. Mystery the most, especially murder mysteries. Huge fan HUGE fan of time travel novels. Good ones are hard to find sadly.
I don't really like reading fantasy novels anymore because I find the whole genre is littered with cliche books that are all so formulaic. It's all like brave, strong heroine (probably an assassin or some kind of royalty) goes through some turmoil and must save the entire world. Everyone has weird names and all the places do too. The storylines are flimsy, the characters often predictable, boring or/and 2D and if there's a love triangle then imma just leave riiiight now hahhahah.

Wow I sound super pessimistic hahaha. I've come to love books that genuinely surprise me because they're not what I expected or they're a hidden gem. If anyone's got any recommendations feel free!

Hi Nicole! Thank you for joining us! Just read whatever BOTM interests you! There are bound to be books selected that you have already read or have no interest in, but hopefully the group helps you find your next favorite! Don't forget to post a nomination for the July BOTM if you haven't already!

message 23: by Aly (new)

Aly (alyp_01) Hi people! I'm Aly and I'm excited to be in this book club. I'm 27 with no kids, except my puppy, so I have a lot of time to read, but I still have a huge TBR list. I love all YA genres and New Adult, especially sports romance. I'm active in 2 other book clubs and I like reading books with others so we can discuss. Thanks for inviting me!


message 24: by Jessica (new)

Jessica | 1 comments Hi all! My name is Jessica, I’m 18 and just finished my first year of university in Arizona, US! It’s been such a busy school year I haven’t had much time to read save for breaks and long weekends. Can’t wait to get back to it this summer!

I remember those days. When I graduated I was pretty much "read all the books!!!"


Devon (ReadByDev) (readbydev) | 3 comments Hi all! I'm Devon and this is my first real book club! I'm from Southern California, I love nature/camping, reading, snuggling with my pups, and drinking 5 cups of coffee a day.

I'm a notorious binge-reader and if I love a book, I can probably finish it within a few days if I try hard enough (AKA staying up for all hours of the night instead of sleeping). My favorite genres are fantasy, horror and sci-fi.


message 28: by Jammin Jenny (new)

Jammin Jenny (jamminjenny) Hi everyone! My name is Jenny and I live in Maryland USA near the beaches of Ocean City. I love reading and I read pretty much any genres. My favorites are mysteries, horror, sci-fi, fantasy. My least favorites are probably non-fiction histories, biographies, and other non-fictions (except science and environment and cookbooks - I like those).

No worries Kadi XD I kind of feel the same about YA Fantasy, yet it's still my most-read genre... No idea why because half the time I'm raging at it. But that's also why I'm branching out into more adult fantasy because they don't have those tropes (mainly not much romance yay)

Btw everyone should watch HaileyinBookland's new '15 signs you're a YA character' video it's great.

Yay another horror reader! I'm a fan too! It's strange though because I can't stand horror movies. I think because with books I can imagine it how I want rather than having an image shoved at me. And I also can't deal with the scary music. Music's a big part for me.

message 34: by Alecs (new)

Alecs (alecsreadsalot) | 2 comments Hello, friends!! This is my first proper book club so I'm a bit nervous, but I'm hecking excited!
I'm Alecs, I'm from the UK and I love all kinds of genres, mostly YA, historical fantasy/romance, sci-fi, fantasy, contemporary. Anything with some sweet, slow-burn romance is a ///win/// for me, hehe.
When I'm not reading, I like to write, attempt baking the perfect macaron shell, and cry over Grey's Anatomy. I can't seem to think about any other facts about myself when I want to, but here I am! I live for two (2) things: books and dessert.

Can't wait to start reading with you all! ♥

Ash (ashesofabookdragon) | 3 comments Hi~ My name is Ash! I own over 700 physical books and a good chunk right now are TBR. *ashamed* LOL I’ve been in a reading slump for the past year and am just starting to kick it off again~ I also enjoy video gaming, knitting, and painting. Which now that I think about it, are also time consuming hobbies. Not enough time in the day! Hahahahaha

I totally agree with you, Maddison. It's fun to scare yourself by imagining scary things. I do enjoy a good horror movie, but usually they aren't as scary as the book versions.

Evie Hughes (eviehughes) | 5 comments Hey All,

My name is Evie (technically my middle name) and I am a mum of two. When I am not wrangling them or working (I am a Neonatal ICU nurse), I am usually stealing a few moments to read. Fantasy is my favorite genre, though I do agree with Kadi that it has gotten hard to find books that aren't tropey minefields. *sigh*. However, since I read anything from middle grade to adult that helps open up the possibilities. I do really love YA fantasy in particular though because it is fast paced and I am an impatient person (get on with it! Stop world building and make something happen!).

Oh, and if anyone bookstagrams, mine is at:
