Genevieve (rainylavender) | 3 comments Hi! I've never used a goodreads group before so I hope I'm doing this alright!

message 4: by Maggie (new)

Maggie (maggie_the_book_slayer) | 2 comments I've never joined a Goodreads group before and I'm still relatively new to Goodreads, so I'll be learning as I go if that's all right!

preferred name/nickname: Maggie

preferred pronouns: She/her

one-sentence rundown of your current wip (if you have one): I have so many! I'm currently bouncing back and forth between an Alice in Wonderland type story, a slice of life type story set in the late 1800's/early 1900s, and a fantasy series which I am hoping will be something like J.R.R Tolkien, C.S Lewis, and Eragon series level type fantasy.

current favorites (books, podcasts, shows, bands, etc):
Books: The Fairy Tale Retold series by Regina Doman, Eragon series, Harry Potter, Howl's Moving Castle, the Lunar Chronicles, Lord of the Rings, Chronicles of Narnia, anything Ted Dekker, and The Day Boy and the Night Girl by George MacDonald.

Movies: Howl's Moving Castle (or anything Studio Ghibli for that matter), Harry Potter, Tim Burton movies, Penelope, Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Hobbit trilogy, Narnia movies (though the first is my favorite), Spider Man movies, Marvel Movies, Star Wars, and Christopher Robin.

Shows: Monk, Psych, Dr. Who (Seasons 1-6ish), the Andy Griffith Show, and the Cosby Show (I probably have more but I can't think of them off the top of my head. I don't watch a whole lot of TV).

Bands: RED, Flyleaf, Lacey Sturm, Zahna, Oh Sleeper, Tenth Avenue North, Wage War, Third Day, Decyfer Down, Demon Hunter, Skillet, Disciple, and I like cello and piano music as well.

other tidbits: I love the rain (the sun and I are not friends haha). My Hogwarts House is Hufflepuff, and I think Hufflepuffs rock despite what anyone says ;). I love photography and gaming (Legend of Zelda forever!), and of course reading and writing are my favorites. I've been writing for 10+ years and hope I never stop! I'm also currently a student at a community college, so I apologize in advance if I'm not terribly active. I love animals, especially dogs and cats, but I love them all really even snakes and other reptiles. I hope one day to travel, at least a little, and two of my biggest travel dreams are to visit Ireland and New Zealand. :)

one-sentence rundown of your current wip (if you have one): Girl thinks she finds love in the beauty she met in the drive-through but realizes that beauty is not fully as interested in her as she had hoped – dealing with depression, a job she hates and hanging out with a grungy group of friends (almost finished, just editing left!)
