Hey Hey, um, I guess I'll take a crack at this- I always have sucked with introductions... like really badly. 

 

My name is Simonne-Margaret, I am 20 years old.

I hail in from Canada- oh the great north, 3 feet of snow and an average of -11 degrees Celsius right now. Lovely, right?

Hobbies? This is where is gets sad- I am literally the most boring person in the world. I can say I like reading though. Eating is fun too- gotta enjoy that! Volunteering at the animal shelter in my area is something I enjoy, I am a natural animal person and helping them only makes the job so much more worth it. Oh! I enjoy all forms of winter sport too (you kind of have to with the copious amounts of snow that are around in the winter)

I don't fall under any Canadian stereotypes... I think. Maybe I am polite? I don't know. I don't say "aboot" (I'm not a Newfie- but even they don't have that accent). Um, I guess I do know french too, but that was something I was forced to take from grade one until the end of high school, soooooo.... But I think thats as "Über Canadian" as I get... Maybe?

I wish I could be all sophisticated and actually enjoy compositions such as Vivaldi and Bach, but I can't. I tend to favour artists like Azealia Banks, Iggy Azalea, and oh, The 1975 are fantastic- you MUST give them a try.

I have read hundreds of books, ranging in genre, so it is hard to pick out favourites, this Academy Series is definitely standing out in my mind though. It is simply excellent. I have enjoyed The Tiger's Curse series by Colleen Houck (not a reverse harem- the heroin has to choose) but it was quite splendid. Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott was interesting as well, it is a graphic and sometimes can be brutal (depending on your sensitivity level). It is not about vampires or supernatural creatures, the main girl was kidnapped as a child and has grown up only knowing her captor and his twisted abuse- so tread lightly with this one.

 

As for this series, I don't have a favourite boy, as I seem to love them all equally. And picking only one scene would be impossible. But I can say I am wound so tight with excitement about book 6. I really just wish I didn't have to wait five months for it. I pray CL doesn't make us wait another five months after for book 7, because I don't think my heart could take it, haha.

 

But yeah, Hello everyone here in the Academy Fandom! It is wonderful to meet you all :)

Good idea Mona, I think I'm gonna start praying too for book 6 to be released sooner haha

Hey I'm Kendall 21, from Wisconsin. I'm currently in school at UW Madison and working towards med school! My main hobby is READING , but I love hanging with my girls and my boy;) (sadly we can't all have nine smoking hot prices of meet so I'll settle for my hunky babe ;) ) I also play basketball and help coach my little sister with my dad! I'm working towards going into sports medicine! For music I'd definitely have to go with country! As far as tv goes I love all the crime shows out there! Along with the bachelor of course! My favorite series besides this one is either the night huntress series or the grey wolves series! My favorite boy is all of them! I mean if sang is'not gonna choose I am most definitely am not;)! My favorite scene as of now is the one where victor finds her passed out in the shower and how he makes her laugh!:) but it will change depending on which book and scene I'm currently reading!!

Hi I'm Kelly! I'll be turning 30 this summer and I'm a stay at home with my 5yr. old boy, 3 yr. old boy, and 1 yr. old girl. We live in southern Minnesota with my amazing husband of 7 years :)  I love reading above all else! My favorite t.v. show is Pysch and Gilmore Girls. Favorite books besides the academy are hard to narrow down, but a few would be Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews, Study series by Maria Snyder, Harry potter, Twilight, Pride series by Shelly Laurenston, and the Halle series by Dana Marie Bell. I continually surprise myself by how different my favorite books are from each other except they always seem to have an element of the paranormal until I read the academy and now I'm certain I have MPRD (Multiple Personality Reading Disorder). I have a difficult time choosing a favorite boy since every time I pick up a book it changes. It actually usually changes as I read so I am so glad we will never have to choose between our Academy boys!  Totally suffering in a book slump at the moment and have picked up 5 different books in a row and stopped reading them halfway through because nothing is good enough anymore. I think I will need to entertain myself with an Academy re-read until Thief comes out. To make it interesting I'm going to look for favorite quotes to start adding to Goodreads ;)

Oh I can't believe I forgot Written in Red by Anne Bishop it was insta-love just like with the Academy! I literally read it 3 times in 2 weeks and am counting down to the release of Murder of Crows as soon as I have Thief in my hands.

Roswell was such a milestone in my life! I was so sad that it ended. Still got Majandra Delfino's mp3 singing 'In the Air tonight' on my playlist!! 

I even asked my cousin to make me a bracelet with Jason's Behr name...

You just made me take the most awesome memory lane! Thank you soo much  :lol:
