Becky and Amanda-Lee join us today and we hope you like them as much as we do.
We found them through our We Want you As a Book Lover search and we are really happy about that.
They will be here as an “Intern” for a month to see if it works out for all of us.
Please Give them a warm welcome!
G’Day, I am Becky from Page Turners and I am from Sydney, Australia. I am a solicitor by profession, working on criminal trials, but reading is my true love. I have always been a reader, and am growing more so each and every day. I love reading; I love the stories, I love the characters, I love the language and I love the book itself. I feel at home when I am reading, regardless of what the book is. It would be rare to find me reading a new book, second hand books are more my thing. I love to read a book that feels like it has been loved before it got to me. I am all about sharing the book love around My favourite authors include Isabel Allende, Margaret Atwood and Richard Flanagan. I couldn’t chose a favourite book, but I do love The Time Travellers Wife by Audrey Niffenegger, Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier and The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. I read contemporary fiction, literary fiction and classics. I also read a lot of Australian fiction, regardless of it’s genre. I want to learn more about my own country’s literary tradition, by reading more and more Australian books.
I am part of the Australian delegation to this multi-national group.

Hi, I’m Amanda-Lee AKA The Winged Lover. I’m an 18 yr old Aussie girl who is addicted to reading, so much so that I push what I should be doing (usually college study and actual work) aside just so I can finish a book. Reading is my guilty pleasure, and there have been many time when I have chosen books over people (even when they are trying to have a conversation with me).
I am always looking for new books to read and often have found entire series that I love just by looking around the blogosphere. I have always LOVED vampires (way before Twilight was even an idea) and now that the paranormal scene has come back I am loving all the new creatures that are coming out of the dark corners. My favourite genres are Fantasy (my current favourite sub-genre being Urban Fantasy), Romance (I love all of it’s sub-genres), Horror, Suspense and YA revolving around Teen Issues.
I am known for my frequent random outbursts and love of chocolate (my other guilty pleasure). I always introduce myself as a writer, but my profession is accountancy (opposites much?)
I am part of the Australian delegation in this multi-national gang.
