Since this is the start of a new book club, I thought it would be nice for everyone to introduce themselves to the other members!

Please tell us as much or as little as you'd like (ex. name, age, where you're from, favorite books, etc.), and you're also welcome to tell us where we can find you on social media!

For me:

My name is Dylan, I'm 19 years old and I live in Indiana. Some of my favorites include: we are the ants, letters to the lost, and a curse so dark and lonely.

You can find me on twitter (@dylanistweeting), instagram (dylanthereader5), and youtube (youtube.com/dylanthereader5).

I'm currently really into Stephen King and mystery/thrillers, but I mostly read YA contemporaries. My only bookish feed is Goodreads, so find me here! (There is a possibility of a bookish podcast featuring me and my sister in the future and if so, I'll post it then)

My husband on a whim bought me FSOG and though I didn't love that book it did spark my interest as to what else I could find to read and enjoy while on bedrest. For years I have only read Contemporary Romance but recently have started to branch out into other genres and am loving finding more authors and readers to connect with!

Thank you Dylan for the invite! I look forward to getting to know y'all!

message 44: by Teresa (new)

Teresa (literarilyobsessedreviews) | 1 comments Hey all!

I'm 36 years old and an upstate NY native, originally from Rochester and currently living in Albany. Yes, this is the real upstate NY :P

To call myself an avid reader is a gross understatement; I've voraciously devoured every book I've encountered for as long as I can remember. I don't really have a favorite genre, but I tend to gravitate to "feminist" stories. Books about women and girls being independent and pursuing their own goals, especially if there isn't some lame love interest, are my jam. I do enjoy love stories, but honest ones that include actual conflict and no sweeping romantic gestures. Though I do have a soft spot for the Outlander series.

I also write a blog that's a combination of beauty, books and the paranormal. I know how that sounds, but it seems to work. Check it out and follow me on social media!

Rachel (beepboopbeep) | 4 comments Hey, hi! I found this group through Merphy's YouTube channel, and I was just peeking in to see what was going on, but decided to stay when I saw you all are reading Trail of Lighting this month. Since it was already on my TBR, I figured this was perfect!
