    Hi everybody. It's been SO LONG and I've really missed this forum, so I'm very excited to be back. I'm not sure anyone remembers me, though, hahaha... Anyways - I'm Sonia, I'm 21 years old and I am from Stockholm, Sweden. I am a political scientist, vegetarian and library lover who plays the piano and likes to take pictures. My favorite author is probably Neil Gaiman, but I have looots of favorite books!

    Feel free to ask me any questions if you like.

    Hugs and cheers, see you around!

    Sonia

    You're in good company then, both Liv and I are mad about Neil Gaiman.

    Reading Neverwhere introduced me to Urban Fantasy and is still one of my all time favorite books.
    Ah yes then, you're a political scientist... I look forward to debating you.:)

    Oh, Neverwhere is amazing! Have you read American Gods? It's another one of my favorite Gaiman-books.

    Great, looking forward to debating you too! :D

    I wasn't overly fond of American Gods. It was a bit too supernatural for my liking. I recently read The Ocean at the End of the Lane and I was disappointed as I thought it was more whimsical than anything else. I've read his short story collections and I love those. 'The Problem of Susan' is perhaps my favorite short story by any writer.

    Gaiman needs to sit his butt down and write a sequel to Neverwhere.:)

    Hi Zymbaline,

    I have no idea who you are because you're from before my time. But that's okay. I like meeting new peeps! :D

    Welcome back Zymbaline! :) I definitely remember you! :D (and this has made me realise how long I've been here :eek:)

    Gaiman is amazing: I really loved American Gods, Neverwhere, The Graveyard Book and Good Omens (definitely the best, with Pratchett's help).

    How are you!? What has warranted this amazing return? :)
