OH MY GOSH I'M SO HAPPY U GUYS JOINED :D

anyways. hey guys, what's up XD. i do try to read all genres, but yea i don't read much mystery/thriller/horror either XD. i also tend to prefer the book over the movie a solid 99.999% of the time lol, but hey, there's always anomalies haha. i like to read the book before i watch the movie, but then i end up getting upset at every miniscule detail that they change XD

victoria (torireads18) | 7 comments hey all! my name's victoria (she/her, and for short you can call me tori or v if that's easier for you), and i like a lot of book genres. ya is my favorite, but i also like fantasy, sci-fi/dystopian, historical fiction, classics, graphic novels, mystery, thrillers, some horror (if it's not too scary), and more! i love watching book to movie adaptations, though i usually read the book first. i'm so excited to be a part of this group :)

hey! yeah i'm excited too, but at the same time, i lowkey don't know what i'm doing XD. but that's ok ahaha.

and yes! it's kinda annoying to myself bcuz i can't even appreciate the movie bcuz the entire time, i'm just comparing the book and the movie XD

Sarah (cresarie) Hii I'm Sarah (she/her) and right now my favourite genres are anything historical (historical fiction, non-fiction, classics, fantasy whatever I just love the vibes), YA and fantasy :) I always read the books before watching the film/tv show adaptations and I almost always love the books more, mainly because I get so annoyed when the films stray from the original plot. Happy to be here! :D

kei (keimy) | 1 comments Hey I'm Kei (she/her)
and honestly, is this even a question?
We all know that books are better than movies by a billion miles.


sophia ⋆.ೃ࿔*:・ | 2 comments hi i'm sophia (she/her)!! i love reading most genres, but mainly fantasy and contemporary :)
i will always read the book first before the movie adaptation so i can be disappointed by the movie yayyy (although some adaptations are actually really good)
thanks for the invite to the group!! this will be fun :))
