I know what it's like to straighten your hair everyday. My hair poofs out if I just leave it curly so I straighten it.

Hi my name is Madeline and of course I am obsessed with reading. I love fairies, vampires, witches, werewolves, and just about anything related to magic. I read mostly fiction and teen fiction. I just finished reading A Wrinkle in Time and now my next read is Tithe. Can't wait I am so excited!

Re: Get to Know Eachother

[ Edited ]

Hi I have been on here since Friday but I decided to introduce myself anyway. My username is Fabulous_Ali and no, my name is not Ali. The reason that's my name is because in my favorate series, Pretty Little Liars, there is a girl named Ali and she always says "I'm Ali and I'm fabulous!" So, I figured I could use that as my username. Feel free to call me Ali anyway, because I rather not have people know who I really am. Well, a little about me:

 

My favorite sports are lacrosse, dance, basketball, and hockey, and sometimes various sports like softball. My favorite subject in school is math. I love to read, but hate to write. My second favorite series (because I already said my favorite above) is a tie between two; Private and Twilight (yes, Twilight, and I'd prefer you not to bash it because most people that bash it critique it on things they don't critique other series about, or they already read the first two chapters of the first book (which, by the way, I DO agree where really really boring) or they only saw the movies and critiqued the actors, who I think all did an amazing job portraying their characters). My favorite book characters are Edward, Jasper, Alice, Bella, Emmett, and Renesmee from Twilight,, Josh, Thomas, Reed, Sabine, and Constance from Private (note that I only finished the fifth book so please don't say anythin that happens after that!),, and Ezra, Wren (at first) Aria, Spencer, Emily, and Isaac from Pretty Little Liars. I absolutely with no exceptions like Jacob Black OR Taylor Lautner (not because he portrays Jacob, just because I think he's a terrible actor, really ugly, and his voice annoys me) although if anyone else played Jacob Black I wouldn't be able to help but be slightly upset, because I think he is perfect for Jacob (like last year when they were going to recast him? Not cool!) And now I'm just kind of going on and on about book characters, so I think I will stop. 

 

Also my favorite authors are Sara Shepard, Kate Brian, Stephanie Meyers, and Lauren Myracle.

 

EDITTED IN: P.S. I used to be obsessed with Twilight, so if you insult it or any of my favveee characters I WILL freak out, seeing as sometimes the obsessed side of me still comes out every once in a wile. KayBye.

 

EDITTED IN: P.S.S I lovveeeeeee Justin Bieber, and I AM a belieber. So no bashin on him, either, kayy?

my name was alison dilaurentis before they even announced pretty little liars would be a tv show *flips hair*

Re: Hey Everyone! Welcome & Introductions: New Users Come Here...

Hi! Im Book Girl!! Of course I love books! Just about every kind..Except non-fiction! I read to get away, so why read something real and come back to view the same thing? I like silly girly books to scary vamp books. Love to write. If I talk about anything different it will always come back to books. I think people are crazy when they say they don't like to read!

When not reading I am doing gymnastics or ridding my horse!

Happy Reading!:smileyvery-happy:

Re: Hey Everyone! Welcome & Introductions: New Users Come Here...

HEY!!!

I'm Cr8zy4bks... literally :smileyvery-happy: . I love escaping into the world of books. I read really fast (1 300page book = 1-2 days of reading) but when it comes to book talks I have a lot to contribute (for those who think I skim). I am really busy but I ALWAYS find time to read. I just found out about this whole B&N Teen Book Clubs thing and I immediately told one of my bff's who is also crazy about books. We just started and are so excited to find out about more books!!!

Re: Hey Everyone! Welcome & Introductions: New Users Come Here...

Ditto on the non-fiction I always try to keep an open mind for books but non-fiction bore me. That's what the news-papers/magazines/INTERNET are for. Why do they clog up book shelves when those that are NOT interested in them outnumber those who ARE (which I don't think exist). :smileyvery-happy:

I would suggest the Sookie Stackhouse series...it is a very good vampire series. Graceling is a pretty good book it is on the fantasy side. Those are some I have enjoyed!!!
