Hello everyone, I'm alxisdeclermont, I actually hate coming up with nicknames and yeah that's the best I could do...  :-[

So, I love fantasy books, and I actually have to admit I have never read any "classics". Also I prefer reading about angels rather than wizards, and I have always sought romance as well. These are the main ingredients for a work I'd surely like. I think that's because when I was a child, my very first novel was Hush, hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Anyway, I bumped into this website on Twitter, and why not? Here I am. English is not my native language so I'm sorry (in advance) to anyone who will have to struggle to understand my sentences.
I shot for the sky, I'm stuck on the ground. I thought I could I fly, so why did I drown?

Welcome! We're all a nice bunch, if I say so myself hehe

There's a book of fantasy short stories called The book of Angels by A.J. Dalton and friends, there are great stories there, both with traditional and more out there Angels - you might like that.

Hi !
I followed a link on twitter and here I am.

I'm from Reunion island, a French oversea department.

I read almost exclusively Fantasy, Sci-fi and Fantastic books.

I started reading in English some ten years ago because I realised that some of the series I was reading in French were not and would probably never be fully translated.

I'm an avid reader, so I love discovering new authors. I don't really have favourites because I just can't choose but at the moment, I have a real soft spot for Patricia McKillip.

Other than that, I also like Mercedes Lackey, Terry Pratchett, Stephen King, JRR Tolkien, CJ Cherryh, etc...

Voilà. :)
