Dee | 56 comments Hi, everyone! I thought we could use a thread just for introductions. We're a group after all, we might as well get to know each other a little bit. :)

So, let's begin! *Ahem* I'm Dee and I pretty much like most of the sub-genres of fantasy. I enjoy when you have realistic characters in imaginative situations and/or settings. And if it has mythical beasties, all the better!
My favorite authors are George RR Martin and Peter S. Beagle.
Aside from reading, some of my other hobbies are writing, drawing, and cooking/baking, to name a few.
If I'm not reading fantasy books, I usually read informational texts on a variety of subjects such as: mythical creatures/folklore, history, true crime, and plants and animals.

Well, there's my introduction! Looking forward to reading all of yours!

Hi, I'm Ashleigh. I created my goodreads account while really tired and didn't realize I just used my first name instead of making an actual username lol. Oh well.
I'm a reading fiend. As my best friend puts it, I don't read books, I devour them.
My favorite genres are urban fantasy, epic fantasy, dystopian, paranormal and horror. But I still read a little bit of everything else as well.
I have a dark, twisted sense of humor and I adore myself for it.
Otherwise, I'm big into animal rescue. I'm attempting to write a book, and am impatiently awaiting the 6th book in ASOIaF.

Hello everyone! I would just like to say thank you for joining the group, it opens a door to people who are similar to you. I am Oceangirlie14 but you can call me Isabella if you want to. I started this group to seek fantasy lovers and people, like amazing Ashleigh who devours books for breakfast. My favorite genre is fiction of all kinds like fantasy or realistic fiction. I love to use my imagination all the time, our minds are powerful. You can just look around the library and see the great authors who had ideas to write. My hobbies are writing, dancing, swimming, drawing, reading, and living life! Enough about me! I want hear other people's stories, introductions. To wrap it all up, I am pleased to meet everyone in W.O.L.F! I encourage all of you lovelies to read because it is amazing. Please enjoy yourselves!

Hi I'm Percy Jackson Kid! I don't know about you, but I'm obsessed with the Percy Jackson series, and the series after that I'm currently reading, Hero's Of Olympus, but I have to wait til October for the next book to come out. I like reading mystery, realistic fiction, and especially light fantasy and fantasy! I'm a really good writer but I only write like once or twice a week cause I'm busy with other things. In school they call me the 10 paragraph writer cause I tend to go above and beyond with my creativity. Isabella got me very interested in goodreads, and everything good she said about it was true! I hope that if I am ever am confused about goodreads or some advanced words you guys are using I can get help from all of you! I just know I'll love this group!


Cupcakes & Machetes (hybridcreature) Nice to meet you Percy! I'm not a Goodreads whiz either but I'll help in anyway that I can. :)

message 11: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa (goodreadscomAlice_Skywalker) | 61 comments Hi everyone! I'm Alyssa (despite my username, which I named after one of my favorite members of one of my favorite bands). I love music, I absolutely love it and I will continue to play instruments and sing for as long as I am physically able to do so! But reading is also a big hobby of mine. I love sci-fi and fantasy, those are my two biggies. One of my favorite authors, if not my number one, is no doubt Michael Crichton. That man is a genius with his science fiction novels. But I also love Veronica Roth (betcha can't guess why!) and Ray Bradbury. I enjoy reading mysteries as well, and Nancy Drew and Sherlock Holmes will stay as my favorite detectives for a long time. I've written one novella to date, as well as one or two short stories; I have this thing where I'll start a story, and have a great concept, but never finish it because I'm not sure how it should end. So I have many story beginnings just sitting on my computer...maybe I'll share some with you guys sometimes! I really wish I could swim, and I thank Oceangirlie for inviting me to this group because it seems like it's going to be a lot of fun!

Hi, Alyssa! :) Glad you're here. I haven't read a whole lot of sci-fi yet, but it sounds like if I ever need some recommendations I'll be able to count on you for that! I started reading the Sprawl trilogy by William Gibson recently, and I'm enjoying it so far. And what I've read by Ray Bradbury I've also enjoyed. So what instruments do you play? And yay for another writer in the group! It sounds like we've got a pretty creative bunch here. :) I can totally relate to having a ton of started writing projects that need to be finished. I used to be notorious for starting one thing and then hopping to the next in no time, but I've actually managed to (mostly) resist that urge and am currently working on the final draft of my first novel. I'm so excited we have so many budding writers in this group. :)

Hi Alyssa! We have a lot in common! I'm always starting stories but never finishing them, and music is my LIFE! I do chorus, play trumpet, excel in piano, and would love to play drums! I'm so glad you're in our group cause you seem so nice! Welcome to W.O.L.F.!


message 14: by Alyssa (new)

Alyssa (goodreadscomAlice_Skywalker) | 61 comments Thank you guys, for such kind words :) I mainly play violin and piano, but I've also dabbled a bit in cello and timpani as well. And I absolutely love to sing!

AnnMarie Smith | 33 comments Hi I'm AnnMarie!
I just joined this group because of my cousin, Percy Jackson Kid! I'm so glad he asked me to join! This group looks really fun!

Well here's a little about me! I love reading, music, and singing. I'm an active participant in the drama club at my school.

My favorite books are The Hunger Games series, and The Fault in Our Stars! I also love Divergent! I read almost anything from Nicholas Sparks to Lauren Oliver! I'm currently reading Requiem (Lauren Oliver) and Safe Haven (Nicholas Sparks).

I'm eager to begin participating in this amazing group!
