About Us

We knew we were different when we played “Library” when we were little. Not joking.

Hannah –  World traveler, brunch enthusiast, cocktail drinker, and aspiring-know-it-all. I’m first in alphabetical order but younger than Lindsay by six months.
My favorite books include (but are certainly not limited to): A Song of Ice and Fire series, Harry Potter everything, and (most recently) Red Rising.
My favorite characters are: Arya Stark and Draco Malfoy

Lindsay – I got an English Degree from Valdosta State University (Go Blazers!) and am currently working my way towards a Master’s Degree in Secondary English Education at UGA. Soon I will fill the world’s whipper-snappers with the joys of “old book smell” and strive to remind them that books are a valid form of entertainment. Until then, I work at a brewery and enjoy spending my free time “improving my palate,” reading (I mean, duh) and generally being young and full of life.
My favorite books include: The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings series, the Iliad, “Beowulf”, the Harry Potter series, Red Rising Trilogy, and the A Song of Ice and Fire series.
My favorite characters are: Frankenstein’s monster, Gollum/Smeagol, Grendel, Sevro au Barca, Luna Lovegood, and Arya Stark

We are both Ravenclaws. Deal with it.

  27. Great blog! And thanks for following mine.

    • Ummm… Am I blind? I cannot actually find where to follow this blog via email. I can only see the WordPress Follow button at the top but I think that just makes it come up in the reader.

      • Disregard, clicking the ‘Notify me of new posts’ box under this reply seems to have done the trick. So that’s what that does…

      • Lol I’m gad you found that! My absent co-blogger is the tech-savvy one so I would’ve been lost as to how to solve the issue. I’m glad you like our blog; yours is awesome and I look forward to reading more!

    Lindsay and Hannah, this blog is so awesome. And I can still see you both as like 4th graders or so “playing library”. Ali was a bit younger than yiu two (JJs age) but how I remember Hannah singing LeeAnn Rimes songs on the way home from early county elem school. Great memories. Hope you girls are doing well! (Ps: Ali’s married now and graduating from college in 2 weeks). 🙂

  30. I love the concept behind your blog. Not only does it spotlight BOOKS, but it also gives more than one perspective. Plus, having two writers takes the pressure off of just one person having to post regularly.

    • Thank you so much, Jayne!! It means a lot to get positive feedback! We try to bring different things to the blog to keep people interested and I think Hannah’s “Read This, Drink That” segment is such a creative spin on the books we read. Anybody can have an opinion, but we hope we can bring fresh perspectives and entertainment into the mix, too! Thanks so much for the comment and the compliment!

  31. Firstly, thanks for the ‘Follow’, otherwise I would not have discovered your awesome blog. Some very interesting posts … keep them coming 🙂

    • Just a further note, I’m intrigued Lindsay, why you think Grendel is a misunderstood character (Beowulf is a fav of mine so …:) )

      • This is one of those stories, much like Robin Hood, that lacks a defined author, so many versions exist and cloud the details. My version leads me to believe that Grendel, and his mother, have their motives, secret though they may be. Maybe it’s his anger-prone ancestry (a.k.a. Cain), maybe the constantly overwhelming noise of Heorot, the meade-hall (I know I want to attack my neighbors when they’re too rowdy), or some versions hint at a long-standing revenge mission. I just have a soft spot in my heart for characters that either are misunderstood by fellow-characters or lack the chance to tell their own side of the story. That’s just me! Anyway, I’m so glad you like our ravings and I am so excited to be a part of your Tolkien talks. He’s my main man! Thanks for following!
