Heya!

Post by GoldiHana » Fri December 10th, 2010, 3:57 pm

Hi I'm Hana from England and well done if you've already guessed it :p I love History and Literature! So naturally I love Historical Fiction! I've recentantly just finished reading Rebel Heiress - which is actually how I found this site! (I was looking up about Elizabeth on the internet, and there was a link to a dicussion on here).

I love writing - like I'm sure many of you do - but I'm mostly here to dicuss works I've read, or hunt for new books I may love! :)

Looking forward to see you around :)

Welcome, Hana! Did your parents name you after the Japanese word for flower, or is your name an alternate spelling of Hannah? Just wanted to know because my daughter is a Hannah, but we toyed with Hana for awhile before she was born. In any case, I'm sure you'll have a great time here!

Welcome, Hana! You'll get lots of suggestions for more great reads here. We're a bad influence in that way. ;)
