Marina (marina-dee) | 2 comments Hey guys! How're you doing?
So weird to see my name at the top of the page - but in a good way?
You guys all seem so welcoming, and that's great (!) but I don't really know where to start? (I've never participated in any GR groups before)
So, yeah, hi, I'm Marina, I'm from France, and I'm generally a huge fan of anything Fantasy
Looking forward to make new bookish friends!

Hi Gary!

Welcome!

Funny children's books are the BEST! My son LOVED
Walter the Farting Dog books. He had a stuffed animal Walter that made fart noises when you squeezed him, which had him in hysterics throughout the stories!

Hi Marina! Welcome! We are totally honored that your first Goodreads group is PenPal Readers ❣

That's awesome that you are in France! We should definitely feature France one month - mmmm french food and wine and romance stories set in Paris!!! πŸ’–

There's lots of us who enjoy Fantasy books here in the group! I recently read the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo and it was awesome - 5 stars for me!


Maggie the Muskoka Library Mouse (mcurry1990) Hello there! My name is Maggie, and I'm from Ontario. I work as a librarian, and have two young daughters. My whole family consists of big readers, so I am looking forward to hearing about what you all recommend. :) Currently, I am making my way through the "Eve Duncan" series by Iris Johansen.

Hi Maggie! Welcome! Of course I love that you're from Muskoka, Ontario :) I was born in Toronto.. we spent summers up on Georgian Bay between Owen Sound and Wiarton. I visited Muskoka a number of times!

That's awesome that you're a librarian, so of course WE will look forward to hearing about books that YOU recommend too! HA!

I just read a really awesome YA #ownvoices urban fantasy speculative fiction series (2 books written so far), by a native american author Rebecca Roanhorse The story has INDIAN LEGENDS * GODS, MONSTERS & MAGIC * HUMANS w/ CLAN POWERS and an environmental dystopian setting.

The books are: Trail of Lightning & Storm of Locusts

Thanks!!! (*^β–½^*)

Ironically enough, it's been a while since I've read a book set in Paris, even if I live there... so it'd be the perfect occasion to find new books! I do love this city with all my heart!

Six of Crows is actually one of my favourite series of all time and I'm hopefully (fingers crossed) rereading it sometimes before the end of the summer. I'm so glad you loved it too! I think the characters totally make it stand out from other series.

Dominique (flowerwort) | 2 comments Hi everyone! I'm new to Goodreads, and I joined because the idea of having a pen pal sounds really fun! I'm rather averse to giving out my information over the Internet, but I enjoy reading very very very much. I'm currently reading The Yiddish Policeman's Union by Michael Chabon. Nice to meet you all!

Anne ✨ Finds Joy (annefindsjoy) | 718 comments Hi Grasshopper! We're really glad you found Goodreads and PenPal Readers :) Lots of members here who love reading and penpal'ng , we're a friendly bunch!

The Yiddish Policeman's Union sounds so interesting, what an imaginative alternate history! I've had Moonglow and The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay on my TBR for ages. I really need to try this author!

Erin Germain (demiguise) Hi, I'm Erin. I'm from Massachusetts. Summer is my busy time of year for work, so my reading tends to slow down a bit. Actually, it fights for time with my knitting needles and my cats.

Right now, I'm keeping to light reads. Resting Witch Face is currently on my Kindle.

I'm looking forward to meeting people. If I disappear for a few days, here and there, it's likely due a crazy stretch at work. I won't stay away long.

message 25: by Mimi (new)

Mimi Morrissey Hello everyone,

my name's Mimi, I am 31 years old and enjoy reading (obviously), drinking tea or a glass of wine from time to time, watching movies and series, baking, cooking, listening to music and more introvert hobbies like those.

My favourite genres are horror, thriller, mystery, fantasy and crime, but I enjoy a lot of the other stuff as well.

Love,
Mimi
