We are cousins (second cousins, to be precise), and we love to read. The idea to start this blog really dates back to late 2010. On one of our daily evening walks, we began discussing The Hunger Games, which we’d both recently read. From that night on, we occasionally talked about whatever we were reading at the time, even if the books were different. Those occasional talks then grew into a sort of mobile book club, with our “meetings” being held during our nightly walks. In early 2012, it finally occurred to us that it might be fun to share our love of books with other avid readers by starting a blog. So here we are. Feel free to join in on our never-ending book talk; we never get tired of it!

When I'm not reading, I work on the administrative side of things in a real estate office. I enjoy knitting and messing around in Photoshop and am a lifelong fan of The Simpsons. Reese's Peanut Butter Eggs are my Kryptonite.
Hey guys, my name is Allison but everyone just calls me Ally. I'm eighteen years old, a reluctant new member of the scary adult-world, lol. My current life consists of attending college full-time, working part-time, and reading whenever I can find the time. I plan on majoring in Biochemistry and (fingers-crossed) then attending medical school. Unfortunately, I've been quite the slacker when it comes to some of my hobbies such as blogging, reading, and even practicing my flute. Lee has been quite the awesome cousin, picking up my slack on the blogging front—thanks Lee! I'm planning on fixing my laziness as I become better assimilated with post-high school life.
My absolute favorite genre is YA fantasy and my absolute favorite book is Poison Study by Maria V. Snyder. I do, however, have many more books and authors whom I adore. Besides reading, I enjoy music, writing, adventuring, and spending time with my family, friends, and adorable dog, Tyler. ❤
About Our Guest Blogger, The Melissa
Greetings fellow readers! I am Melissa, although I will continue to refer to myself as The Melissa just because I can. I'm a 19 year old college student planning on majoring in something English related. I enjoy reading YA books as well as the classics. I won't even try to list my favorite authors because I will inevitably leave out someone of great importance. I have yet to find my favorite book, but I have no doubt that it is out there waiting for me. I am a guest blogger here at Rally the Readers because college and work keep me ridiculously busy and my motivation comes in short and inconsistent bursts. I look forward to contributing to the blog more frequently in the future. Special thanks to Lee who has kept this blog up and running despite her own very busy life.
