Hi Everyone! My name is Shelly (shell, or shellbelle is fine too) and I am thrilled to be a Moderator for this group! I live in Wichita, KS with my teenage daughter, and I'm a substitute teacher! I have read since I was little, but I really became a bookworm when I was in middle school. In the last couple of years I have really gotten back into reading, and have discovered tons new authors! Susan Mallery has been one of those new authors, and I'm so glad she was recommended to me! I haven't read a lot from her, but what I have read I adore, and I will eventually get through the whole list!hahahaha

I have also been selected as one of Susan Mallery's Fool's Gold Varsity Cheerleaders! We will be spreading the word over the next few months about the next Fools Gold Trilogy, and if the first book is anything to go on you guys are in for a treat!!!

Tegan (therowdylibrarian) Hi! I'm Tegan. I just graduated college and am taking a year off to work and look at grad schools. This will also give me a chance to read more for fun! Yay! GoodReads has been wonderful for this as I've been learning about new authors, including Susan Mallery! I've never read any of her books, but have heard wonderful things from our wonderful mod, Shell!! :) I'm looking forward to reading Susan's books and discussing them here!

Yay Tegan! Thanks for joining and I think you will really enjoy her:D Her books are cute, sweet, and emotional, as well as funny! What more can you ask for☺

Hey Everyone! My name is Taylor and I am a Senior getting ready to graduate college this Fall. I love to read, spend time with my family, discover new movies and TV shows, and of course hang with my dog Orion. I have too many fav. authors to list, but Susan Mallery is in the top list. I love Susan Mallery's book because they have heart and emotion that connect with the reader on a personal level.

 Shellbelle  | 1168 comments Mod
I have awesome GR friends! Thanks guys for joining:) And Taryn her books are all Contemp. Romance to my knowledge, but I will admit I haven't read all of her books yet! For those of you who haven't read her yet Taylor is right, Susan Mallery rights books that have heart and emotions, and you will find it easy to relate to her characters!

message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

Aloha everyone:) Thnx to Shell for the invite. I see a few people that I know here. But for those of you who don't know me, I'm 29 almost 30 in 11 days. Legally not married but my BF/hubby and I have been together for 12 yrs. We have 4 children: 2 girls and 2 boys. Live in Hawaii. I love to read, you'll always see me with a book or my Nook in my hand. I'm reading my first book by Susan Mallery and really enjoying it. Anything else you want to know, feel free to ask:)

message 11: by Kelly Lynn (new)

Kelly Lynn (lemonpink418) | 189 comments I'm Kelly Lynn, and I'm a readaholic. But seriously, I can never find enough books and have so much trouble putting them down. Susan Mallery drew me in immediately and I felt like I had to go find everything else I could that she wrote, though I admit I haven't read the Marcelli Brides series yet. I live in the Philadelphia area and am a sportswriter by day.

message 12: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 468 comments OH! What sports do you cover, Kelly Lynn?

message 13: by [deleted user] (new)

A sports write? Wow cool. I'm also interested in what sports you cover?

message 14: by Kelly Lynn (new)

Kelly Lynn (lemonpink418) | 189 comments Mostly hockey. I work for a company that provides television listings to cable companies (so if you have something like Comcast Digital Cable and hit the info button, I write those, but just the sports based ones). I was a sports editor for a paper in Jersey for a while, and covered pretty much every high school sport there is, but I missed the 9-5ish schedule with weekends and holidays off!

message 15: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 468 comments Oh, that's pretty cool! I have a friend from Philly and she lives for all the sports teams there. lol

Oh yeah Carolyn, I'm soooo Gwenyth!lol (I always forget she can sing until she does something like that! Then I'm blown away:)

message 19: by Kelly Lynn (new)

Kelly Lynn (lemonpink418) | 189 comments Oh how I wish I got to go into the locker room with the guys, but sadly no.

I did however get to go into a college football locker room a few times while I was interning during college and that was fun ;)

message 37: by Angela (new)

Angela (ATMac4398aolcom) | 6 comments Hey everyone! I'm Angela MacIntyre and I'm also one of the Fool's Gold cheerleaders. To be honest, I've avoided GR like the plague, because I was terrified I'd find MORE books to read!! I'm sure I will, but I LOVE reading!! If only my budget loved it as much as I do. Sigh. I haven't even added any books to my list yet, so I'm very new at this!

Susan is one of my favorite authors! I've read ALL of her books. Her heart just shines in her stories! I've been a reader from a very early age, so I've read LOTS.

My husband and I have 6 kids (4 girls, 2 boys) and 7 grandkids. We have a his, hers, and ours, though we just refer to all of them as OURS. The oldest is 29 and youngest is 8. I'm a special ed teacher on medical leave right now--just had back surgery a few months ago. On the good side, I've managed to catch up on a LOT of reading! ;)

Great to meet everyone!

YaY Angela, another Cheerleader!!! GoodRead's can be dangerous to the pocket book that is for sure, but is so much fun, and I have discovered some amazing authors/books on her and made some great friends☺

~Jennifer~ (book_addiction) Hi Angela! Welcome!

message 40: by Julie (new)

Julie | 2 comments Hello. My name is Julie and I am also a Fool's Gold Cheerleader! Me, my husband and our 4 boys live in Lexington, KY. I have read every one of Susan Mallery's contemporary-romance novels---she is definitely my favorite. GoodReads is my go-to resource and I consult it frequently. Even got the app on my new Nook Color. Happy reading, all!

 Shellbelle  | 1168 comments Mod
Welcome Julie! More and more of the Cheerleaders are showing up:D And I'm impressed that you have read every one of her books! I'm getting around to it, and so far they have all been so good!

message 42: by Susan (new)

Susan Mallery (susanmallery) | 10 comments Hi, everyone! My name is Susan Mallery. :) I have a healthy level of self-esteem, but I feel uncomfortable writing what I love about Susan Mallery, so I'll just leave it at that.

Thank you all so much for joining this group and for being so enthusiastic about my books!!!! And special thanks to Shellbelle for moderating the group.

message 44: by Angela (new)

Angela (ATMac4398aolcom) | 6 comments WTG, Shell!!! SO glad you're doing this! I know it's a lot of work, but I'm really excited to learn more about GR AND talk about Susan's books!! I haven't spent too much time on here yet, because we just got back from an 8 day vacation and I'm playing serious catch up here.

I'm wondering where my laundry fairy ran off to while we were gone?

Hey Susan!

Andrea Hi everyone :) My name is Andrea, and I've read pretty much everything by Susan. I first started out with the bakery sisters series and then bought the everything I could get by Susan :) So far my favorites are the Fools Gold series and the first novels of the Marcelli family series, and (I almost forgot that one, though I have no idea how that could happen...) Falling for Gracie :)
