Have not joined a meetup but have been part of a book club in the distant past.
I am currently reading "A King's Ransom" by Sharon Kay Penman who is one of my top 2 authors and have read every single one of her books. Previously I read "Frances Stuart-Girl on a Golden Coin" by Marci Jefferson. I have also recently read Deborah Harkness: A DIscovery of Witches and Shadow of Night - which are two of a trilogy and am anxiously awaiting the third books. If you have not read these books, I very highly recommend them. She had me up all night reading in suspense. I could go on and on about books I've read but these I strongly recommend.
My most favorite genre is historical fiction but only by authors who have done their research like Sharon Kay Penman and Margaret George. I also have a deep rooted love for fantasy, having read JRR Tolkien starting at 14 yrs old. I have also read Terry Brooks, George RR Martin and many others. I also got into the Vampire genre with The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova and then of course, who doesn't enjoy the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer?
I don't know if I can pick just one - probably The Hobbit and subsequent Lord of the Rings Trilogy. And any book by Sharon Kay Penman.
Sharon Kay Penman - could you tell? I also love George RR Martin - have read the first 4 books in his Game of Thrones series at least three times years before he even became mainstream on HBO. I also really was into Robert Jordan, also having read the first 6 or so books of his multiple times until I got tired of waiting 2 years (at least) for the next book to come out. I believe the series is now complete, despite his passing, and would like to start over from the beginning. I actually have the first ten books in unread 1st edition. So, that's that. I don't really know what else to write except I am new to LV and am looking to meet new people that share my love of books.
Hi. My name is Heather. I moved here from Lake Havasu AZ but am a Portland OR native. I love fantasy/sci-fi but a close 2nd is historical fiction. I also like romance, mystery and spy-intrigue. I have 2 dogs: Pearl (blue heeler) and Holly (Chihuahua)
I am a new member - only a couple of meet-ups so far but everyone I have met is really, very nice. And it is so wonderful to hang out w/ women that are interested in the same things as me. Not only books but just hanging out w/ girls and chatting about life and men and friends. I am new to Vegas and it is so hard to make friends in a new city and I feel very accepted w/ this group. It is wonderful to make new friends! A special thanks to Lesta for organizing everything! :-) -UPDATE : I am now a DEDICATED member and had a really good time. And as always, a big thank you to Lesta for being a great organizer and always looking for other activities for the ladies to participate in and enjoy. Looking forward to Star Trek and Comic Con!
