Hey guys! Welcome to the 100 Letters Book Club! This has been a long time coming, but we made it!! WOOOO!!! I'd like to thank the Academy--

Let's start by introducing ourselves. It might take a little while to get used to this site, so I figured an introduction post is easy enough to start with. :)

If you don't know, I'm Liv and my twitter handle is @visitkingdoms. I'm the moderator of this club. My favorite artist (aside from Halsey, as that is implied by ... everything about this club) is Taylor Swift (oh my god folklore ..................), my favorite book is The Girls by Emma Cline, and a book I'm reading right now is The Shining by Stephen King. I'm a songwriter, I love to bake, and I have a pet pug named Pups who is my best friend even though I am allergic to her and break out into hives whenever I touch her :( (the hives are worth it).

POST ABOUT YOURSELVES! OR DON'T! Whatever you're comfortable sharing about yourself, please share! I'm looking forward to reading with you guys and getting to know a lot of you better than I already do. :)

message 3: by Valentina (new)

Valentina (puginbaby) | 4 comments Hi!! It’s 1.45am and I can’t sleep so why not introducing myself right now?

My name is Valentina, I’m from Italy but live in London. I started using twitter a couple of months ago so I’m still trying to figure it out eheh my handle is @violentxrain. Other than our gal pal Halsey my favourite artists are Muse, Arctic Monkeys, Paramore etc etc the usual AlternativeBandsTM. I go to too many concerts - it’s an addiction 😔

I work in digital marketing (boring) and I have a combined degree in German & Film and Media because I like cinema and foreign languages and I couldn’t choose just one. I also speak Spanish. Aaaand I love reading, I’m a messy reader cause I read lots of books at the same time sigh :( My favourite authors are probably Philip Roth, Haruki Murakami and Elena Ferrante. I also like poetry (mainly Italian poetry so I won’t bore you with that)

I love dogs. I think that’s it!

Kenly CG (kenlycg) | 7 comments Hi! I'm Kenly (@kenlycg on twitter and instagram) and I'm from Costa Rica. My favorite musicians are Halsey, Taylor Swift, and twenty one pilots. I'm obsessed with Brie Larson. I love reading, but I haven't read as much as I'd like to for a long time. My favorite movie is Sweeney Todd. My favorite book is 11/22/63 by Stephen King, and my current reading (not really current because I haven't read it since February lol) is Cherry by Nico Walker.

message 6: by Tori (new)

Tori Forte | 1 comments hi! i’m tori, @invincibletori on twitter! I love fantasy, non-fiction, and biographies. my favorite book is a little life and i’m currently reading the overstory! I can’t wait to read with y’all and get to know you better!

message 7: by Pepper (new)

Pepper (campcopes) | 1 comments Hi all! This is @campcopes 🤠 I’m a US citizen who decided to run away to Australia just before COVID struck, so now I’m here for the foreseeable future! I’m a barista by trade and that brings me the most joy, along with the DIY music scene and my pets (a cat named River and a dog named Sybil)

I’ve always enjoyed non-fiction and the section I go straight to in bookstores is cultural studies / queer / non-white non-fiction. Back home in the US, I have piles of books about Black journalism. I’ll also devour any book on coffee spotted at local shops. The last book I read was, “First, They Erased Our Name: A Rohingya Speaks” by Habiburahman with Sophie Ansel and I’m currently working through, “Revolutionary Yiddishland: A History is Jewish Radicalism” by Alain Brossat and Sylvia Klingberg.

I generally use they/them pronouns :)

message 8: by Ozthaniel (new)

Ozthaniel  (jstkeepswmmng) | 1 comments Henlo. I’m @wizard0f_0z on Twitter. I read mostly fantasy, suspense, paranormal, sci-fi, and things of the sort. I also enjoy poetry autobiographical, and anything remotely science based. A lot of the time I have to do audiobooks instead due to a brain condition that kinda messes with me. I don’t read as much as I should but I’m hoping to change that.

message 9: by Alexys (new)

Alexys Carrasquillo | 2 comments Heyy guys :) my name is Alexys (Alexys_C on twitter and lxy.crsql on Instagram). I’m 24 and live in Charlotte, NC in the US. I spend most of my time working, playing animal crossing, listening to music, and reading. I mainly love reading fiction books because I love escaping the real world and my mind lol. I can’t wait to read with you guys!

Kali (livebylyrics) | 2 comments <--- Kali Berry aka @livebylyrics17 on twitter
I used to read and write a lot more than I do. My old laptop had an estimated 80 songs and 30 poems written, as well as at least 20 fanfics and 3?4? NaNoWriMo novels. Unfortunately, my ex sold my laptop for drugs and not all of the content made it to the cloud or backup drives. The only NaNo that was even slightly considered publishable was one that is gone. Oops.
It's hard to write after that...
When I first heard Halsey's music, in 2014 or 2015, I immediately liked it. But I didn't stan. I go through phases where I become ABSOLUTELY ADDICTED TO AND OBSESSED WITH something in such a way that leaves no room for anything else. At that time, it was Alesana. Great band. Haven't listened to them in a couple years because that phase faded.
For while, my stan was local music and going out to concerts every week. Whew lemme tell you I was broke and drunk.
Now I come in all late to stan Halsey and missed so many eras. Yes, I heard the music, but I wasn't online for the countdowns and the pre orders and the community. :(
Oh well, I'm here now. And I plan to stay <3
P.S. Ten years ago, I stanned twilight and the nostalgia keeps love for it in my heart.

message 12: by Milo (new)

Milo | 6 comments Hello everyone! I'm Murilo/Milo (@neptunicmanic on twitter), an 18yo brazilian boy who likes pop music in general with focus on Halsey's work. I used to read a lot a few years ago and I lost touch with this section of art when I started to flirt with other stuff like dancing, science, drawing and music, obviously. I'm joining here because I feel like getting back with reading and being able to do that with such great company as other stans is an exciting two-for-one!
