Grace Elliot (httpwwwgoodreadscomgraceelliot) Hello and thank you for the invitation to the group! (Very appropriate as I sit here with a cup of tea, wondering what to read next)
My name is Grace and I'm an avid reader. My favourite genre is historical romance - I'm a bit of a history nut! My love of reading led me to start writing.

My tastes are very eclectic and I am addicted to HEA. I love romance, romantic suspense, thrillers, paranormal and historical. As long as it is a good story I am willing to read it.


message 15: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi, I'm Dixie and I appreciate the invitation to join. I read chick-lit and alternate it with heftier things, but nothing too heavy. I adore tea, as it is helping me lose a few stubborn pounds. Tea with a little mint and sweetener.

Oh, speaking of mint tea, when I was visiting friends in Holland, we were out for a coffee on a cold day. My friend ordered Mint Tea. They brought her a mug filled with a stem of mint (maybe 10 leaves on the stem), then filled the cup with boiling water! She added a squirt of lemon and honey. It was different, but still delicious. Worth a try if you have a mint plant.

I'm 24, from the Lake District (UK) and I pretty much just read romance (in all forms). :) The movies I love all have HEAs too!

Nicole HI I'm Nicole. I love in the MAnila, Philippines. I'm currently taking up Psychology. I'm 16 years old. I read mostly everything. Mostly Fiction. I love watching book based movies and my favorite color changes every year.

In love with The upcoming Movie, THE HOST by Stephenie Meyer but I hate sparkling Vampires.

And Oh, I was Invited by Debra.


message 28: by [deleted user] (new)

A world-wide group, to be sure. Nicole, you are lucky to have so much time ahead of you for reading. Hopefully, we'll introduce you not only to good books published now,but to some others great books published in the past.

It's not set in The Philippines, but in South Asia. I think a great book is A Town Like Alice by Nevil Shute. The library will have it for sure.

You might want to give it a whirl.

message 29: by Paula (new)

Paula Thanks for the invitation Deb. I'm Paula, 60 from Colorado. I am married and have 3 almost grown children, (my 24 year old son still lives at home). We are expecting our 2nd grandchild in October. I read most anything whenever I can. I have an entire room of books that I hope to read before I die, except I keep adding more to it as well as my Kindle so we'll see. LOL

I also like to knit, crochet and cross stitch.

I'm reading "The Dressmaker" Kate Alcott right now.


message 30: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi Paula,

If you had to pick a few books to take to a desert island, what would be your picks? Just off the top of your head...

Dixie

message 31: by Paula (new)

Paula Hmmm, this is a hard one, I have so many unread books. I think I would take:

Gone With the Wind (a favorite that I HAVE read) and
World Without End
Fall of Giants

Because these are big books and it would take more time to get through them.

I think I'd take Lonesome Dove (those guys are my friends and I "don't read westerns."
Also A Town Like Alice
Third, a toss up between War and Peace and Anna Karenina. I could probably build a shelter of some sort with Lonesome Dove and one Tolstoy book.

I reread GWTW as an adult and thought completely differently about Scarlett. She seemed more of a nitwit to me, more of a hysteric than she had when I read about her at twelve. Then she was mythical.

Ian Butler (burgerbardad) | 3 comments Hi

I'm Ian Butler and I live in Enniskillen County Fermanagh. I love writing reading and tea. In fact cannot do either of the first two without having access to the third. My first novel was published a couple of weeks ago. It's a comedy romance and this is the type of book I like to read although I do enjoy many other genres. I have a blog posted here as well as some short stories and would love your feedback.

It's nice to be here.

message 39: by Glenda (new)

Glenda L Peppermint hot tea in the winter ... otherwise, I'm a coffee drinker. I'm in Ohio.


message 40: by [deleted user] (new)

Glenda,

I remember the first time I drove through Ohio -- it was gorgeous! But I'm from Houston which is as flat as a runway and humid as a rain forest, so to be in an area where the land went up and down was definitely novel.

Peppermit Tea sounds good about now -- I'm in Maine and it's in the 50's.

Dixie


message 41: by Paula (new)

Paula That peppermint tea does sound good, but not today, going to be in the high 80's here.

message 45: by Evelyn (new)

Evelyn Gonzalez Hello, thank you very much for the invitation.My name is Evelyn. I'm a junior in highschool and I love to read pretty much any genre. This group is perfect since especially in these summer months I have a hankering for some good chicklit and amazing romance books.


message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

Hi, Evelyn,
My favorite all time romance novel is Knight in Shining Armor by Jude Deveraux. It's a time-travel romance and is hilarious. A little dated, but then again, so it George Clooney and he still has "it."

If you like that, let me know and I will make some other recommendations.

Melly M (mellymelons) | 1 comments Hi everyone,
I am an almost 24 year old female from Canberra, Australia. I am currently studying a degree in Education and in my spare time I LOVE reading any type of chicklit.
My perfect day consists of many cups of tea and a good book.
I dream of one day writing my own chicklit novel and have it published. May never happen but a girl can dream :)
I am currently reading Monica McInerney 'A Taste For It'.

As for the tea poll, nothing beats Dilmah Extra Strength here in Australia. So yummy on a cold winters day.

Look forward to getting to know everyone and to discussing some good literature.

Mel :)


message 50: by Martha (new)

Martha Samsell (tmhoira2012) I drink Tetley British Blend and in the morning English Breakfast Tea. Also, Green Tea is a favorite of mine.
