♥ Innocent Lamb ~ Forever Reading ♥ - AKA Smarties (NotJustAnyOrdinaryGirl) | 2899 comments Mod
Please Introduce yourself!!!

I'll start!

I speak fluent sarcasm, but I know when to pack it up and lock it into a suitcase when needed... most of the time. Some people call me wierd, I just smile and say thanks.

I love to read and I am constantly reading... I enjoy reading books that irritate my friends because once I start, there has to be a really good reason for me to stop reading... Grrr, I hate it when I have to stop half way through a good book. I am random and weird and everyone thinks I am too absent minded and do you know what I tell them? That's just me for you.
When someone asks me 'What's up'
I will always literally look up and if you were to ask me right now, I would look up and say... "The roof."
P.S. Does anyone know any good reading material? I am outta stuff to read and everything I try to read ends up to be really bad... probably because they are books for 8 yr olds, but still, I am outta stuff to read.
P.P.S Call me whatever, though I.L. or Innocent will be fine... I found that name whilst I was readin' Twilight... it was okay, and it just stuck on me. (the name.)
P.P.P.S (This is the last one) It's my birthday today!!!

Kauthar | 149 comments hello my name is Kauthar (CoCo). i live in the USA. i absolutely love love to read. whenever i go to the library i would get at least 15 books or more. it only takes me a day to read most books. i like to read mostly romance books, also paranormal, mystery , comedy, anything really. except sad books. i dont know why but i always always cry when it has a sad ending. i want to be a photographer or any art related career. most people when they meet me think im quite and shy but i am probably reading or i have my headphones on.
HAPPY late BIRTHDAY I.L.!!


message 8: by Caedy (new)

Caedy  Eries (karida) | 2 comments Hi!
I'm Martha. Live in the US. Addicted to books, self confessed bibliophile, and Kindle lover. I go no where without my Kindle and on the occasion still switch to a physical book (only when I can't afford to get it for my Kindle or it isn't available for my Kindle through the library). Right now, I've been on a Young Adult kick, as well as a paranormal, fantasy type kick. I've been doing my best to catch up on various series that I am in the midst of!

This year my current reading challenge is 200 books which is up 90 from last year's and thus far I have read almost 40 books toward that goal.

Ummm....i think that's about it, you can find my book reviews here on goodreads, you can also find them here: my blog, and also here on

I'm gonna introduce myself even though you all know as your moderator. I'm Sabrina and I love school and I do piano and a lot of other sports. I also love algebra and architecture and that's me. Oh and I love to style myself up and go to parties.


message 10: by MobileMinx (new)

MobileMinx | 13 comments Hello Book Lovers!

My name is Minx and I am very new to GoodReads. I joined at the end of Januaryand have been pretty consumed since then getting to know all about the site, people and books.

I will read anything and often do. I love my nook, but have recently added a Kindle Touch. I will still read paper, but have found that all of the .99 book deals on Amazon are keeping me quite content with new reading.

I am excited to be involved in a newer group that is active. Please feel free to reach out and say 'hi' every now and then!


message 11: by Martha (new)

Martha Bryce (GoodreadscomMarthaM) I'm Martha and a lot of the previously posting Martha's stuff works for me as well - except for the photomanipulations. I try not to manipulate anything. I love to read and always have. When I go, bury me with a couple of books for the trip. Minx brought me into this group. I review here, on B&N, on the World Literary Cafe and my blog.


message 12: by MobileMinx (new)

MobileMinx | 13 comments Welcome Martha! I'm reading 'This Time You Lose.' Will be posting a review within days!

message 13: by Sydney (new)

Sydney Culver | 2 comments Hi, this looks like it's going to be a great group! My name is Sydney, and I am also obsessed with Goodreads, trading books, updating my library on my NOOK and of course reading. I have really broadened my horizons since I discovered Goodreads. I also find myself reading two or three books at a time...I just don't know who I am anymore! I love paranormal, YA, certain types of bios, fantasy and post-apocalyptic genre. Not crazy about mystery or crime but hey, I may take a chance after the right review.


message 14: by Emma (new)

Emma Hey Sydney :)


message 15: by Sofia (new)

Sofia (sofiathellama) | 1 comments Hey :) I'm nearly 12... yeah I'm a kid :D My name's Sofia and I'm obsessed with Goodreads, reading, writing and Instagram. I'm new to Goodreads (like a week old) and I love Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and other related books. I want to be an author when I'm older but I don't think that'll ever happen :P

Thanks for the warm welcome :D


message 18: by Jacy (new)

Jacy (Jazabell) | 73 comments Hello everyone,

My name is Jacy and I love books. I will read just about anything once. I'm currently really into UF and Paranormal Romance but I also read lots of Children's lit.

@Sofia, don't sell yourself short. There is a quote from "Letters to a Young Poet" by Rainer Maria Rilke in the movie Sister Act 2 that I really love..."If when you wake up in the morning you can think of nothing but writing then you're a writer". Many writers work other jobs while they write and some writers never get published, but if writing is something you love to do then don't give up and maybe someday we'll all be talking about the book you wrote!

Sabrina (Smilyface) | 256 comments Mod
Welcome guys. I agree with Jacy - Don't sell yourself short Sofia, if you want to become and author then you should go for it!

message 21: by Gabrielle Elise (new)

Gabrielle Elise (3Gabrielle3) | 1 comments Hi, everyone! I'm Gabrielle, I'm 14 years old, and I'm from England.
I'm what most people at my school would call a nerd (although not at all things). My favourite subject at school is English, but I enjoy Spanish and French all the same.
I love to write, read, sing, and draw. I am an aspiring author and, on Goodreads, my aim is to meet new people who, like me, love books, and to introduce people to my stories, so go ahead: add me, if you please!
Oh, and my favourite books are Impossible by Nancy Werlin, Uglies by Scott Westerfeld, and The Truth About Celia Frost by Paula Rawsthorne. I can't believe I almost forgot to mention them, even though books are what this group's about!
It's lovely to meet you all. :)

To anyone who likes to give feedback and advice, could you read my on-the-go story? I'd really appreciate it. Here's the link: http://www.goodreads.com/story/show/2...

Thank you!


message 22: by Darwin (new)

Darwin Hello everyone. I'm Darwin. I am married with 2 young sons (9 and 6) and a 95 lb. golden retriever. I am new to goodreads, but think I am going to enjoy it very much. I love to read...depending on the book. I enjoy everything from Vince Flynn to Stephen King to financial books. I even tried Twilight (Twilight, #1) by Stephenie Meyer since my wife and neighbor ladies were freaking out over it. 120 pages into it I realized this wasn't going to work. Looking forward to being a part of this group and meeting all of you.


message 23: by Qweenie (new)

Qweenie | 1 comments Hi everyone, I'm Jen and obviously (since I'm here) I am a book lover! Such a book lover, in fact, that I went to uni and became a librarian :) My mission this year is to step outside my comfort zone in terms of genre - I've never been much of a sci fi/fantasy reader, but somebody's put me onto China Mieville's New Crobuzon novels and I am absolutely devouring them. George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones series is pretty incredible too. But I can't see myself venturing too far from my love of good historical fiction - Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall sequel is out in May, so that is top of my 'to-read' list at the moment. Always open to recommendations, though - looking forward to being part of this group and interacting with all of you :D

message 25: by Ann (new)

Ann Lee (goodreadscomAnnlee) | 18 comments Hi all,
I love to read and write and I tried to balance, I am a author of several books. I am a researcher, my lastest book was written after 7 years of research,Human Property Hanging in the Family Tree Yields a Harvest

I love to cook, all kinds of different foods. My book interest varies, I am just a book lover. If it holds my interest I do not care about the particular genre

Rosalie Pope (rosaliepope) | 1 comments Hi there,
Of course I love to read. I also like to write. I wrote my first little book, Puppies for Sale $25.00 on a whim and am proud to say it won the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Award in the category of animal/pets. If you are a pet lover, please check it out, put it on your to read list. I also love to read fiction and non fiction. I love to read anything by Vickie McKeehan. Her Evil trilogy is awesome. I couldn't put the books down.

Jammie | 136 comments Hello :) My names Jammie, as you can see. I am 19 years old and I am from Australia :D
I love to read, I am always in the middle of some book and I always carry a book around in my bag no matter where I am going.
I am a totally Harry Potter obsessed nerd and a proud Whovian :P (for those of you that don't know what that means, I love Doctor Who :)) Looking forward to talking to you guys and getting to know you :)

My main reason for joining (other than the given love of books) is that I have wanted to join a group that does like monthly book club reads for a while, and you are reading two books from series that I absolutely love this month! :D
