Biography

Carolyn C.

Teen Board Member

Crescent City, California

I'm 16 from a town in extreme northern California and I love to read. Most of the time when people see me I either have a book in my hand or am thinking about reading another one. Even when stretching for cheer I typically am either listening to a book or trying to multitask by holding one and stretching at the same time. When I'm not reading (which is a rarity) I enjoy playing soccer, helping the community, traveling and playing music. I'm super excited to be a part of the Teen Board this year and to share my love for books around the world.

Top Five Favorite Books:
1. The Ghost Bird series by C.L. Stone
2. HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN by J.K. Rowling
3. CONFESSIONS OF A MURDER SUSPECT by James Patterson
4. VAMPIRE ACADEMY by Richelle Mead
5. A DISCOVERY OF WITCHES by Deborah Harkness
