    Hello~
    You can call me by Eithne my name has the meaning of "Mother of All Gods" in Ireland ~
    When I do not spend my time reading novels, I cook or ... I sleep of course ~

    The novels I read are usually composed of a love story, it's essential ~
    ~ Feel free to send me your favorites ~

    The novel that I prefer is "Mouikkai Musume" even if I have not finished it yet ~
    Development and the universe I like a lot ~

    I love relaxing or energizing music with a nice melody ~
    If, I do not answer you right now, it would be for two reasons ~
    1: I sleep
    2: I read
    Sorry in advance ~

    Happy to meet you ~

    Um hello .
    You can call me Cats. I have been watching from the shadows for longer than I’d like to admit. As far as reading interests, I have a soft spot for fluff and romance. I particularly dislike harems which annoy the living daylights out of me. Irl you can find me cooking or working out. I give great advice (or maybe I’m just nosy?). Anywhos henlo~ :blobdog:

    Hi, I'm Momo!

    I first found out about NU after searching for ways to read "Hai to Gensou no Grimgar" after the anime was aired.
    Before that, I only had brief contact with JP novels because my older brother read some of the Boggiebop Phantom series and also read some of the Katekyo Hitman Reborn novels (I think it was about this time that I got really into bl shipping :hmm: 8059, 8018 & 3318 lol).

    I've been lurking around like a ghost since then, sometimes checking novels to kill my boredom or binge-reading to escape reality~

    One of my favorite novels was the Bakarina series (Otome Game no Hametsu Flag shikanai Akuyaku Reijou ni Tensei shiteshimatta...). I like light-hearted stories and the slice of life genre. I will start reading anything interesting and with good reviews EXCEPT horror...and probably... lazy protagonists ("fake" lazy is okay though). Currently favorite novel is "The Traveling Hero Won't Let the Innkeeper's Son Escape" - THWISE.

    I love mangas about food & cooking (mostly seinen/josei, no food battles or crazy dishes) and if I had to rec anything on that genre, the 2 volumes of "Gohan no Otomo" are probably my favorite right now (It's fully colored too!). The author also released an illustrated children's book called "Ojiichan to pan"! It's wonderful! :blobmelt:

    :blob_coffee: I also love coffee (and tea)!

    Nice to meet you! :blobbunny:

    Name/Nickname you want us to call you: Yume
    Hobbies/interests: Reading, listening to Korean music and watching Korean drama/movies/variety shows, sleeping, watching anime and playing video games
    Genres you read often/tags you often look for: Romance, drama, fantasy, action
    Your favourite novel/read and WHY: I don't have a favorite novel. I'm more about the writing, story and the character of the novel. If they're good, then I'll read through it despite of what kind of genre they are. I believe this helps me expand my list than limiting it to certain genres or styles.

    I'm not Japanese but I am Korean and can speak, write and read Korean pretty fluently. I joined NU in hopes to find a group that I can join to do some translation work as I miss translating. I used to be active in translating Korean entertainment article and I want to get back into it by trying Korean novels.

    Thank you for reading!
