Welcome to Maci and Zoe Read Books!

Maci and Zoe Read Books Hello, welcome to our blog. We are twins who love to read! Maci goes to Gettysburg College in Pennsylvania where she is majoring in History. She plays trombone in the Marching Band and loves to spend time exploring the Gettysburg Battle field when she is not reading. Zoe goes to George Washington University in Washington D.C. She plays trumpet in the Pep Band and in her free time when she is not reading she can be found in a nearby museum.

Our favorite thing to do is to read. We read every chance we get. Our favorite genres are Historical Fiction, Realistic Fiction, and Fantasy. We love making connections through our books, which makes biographies and history books fun as well. We also like the challenge of Non-Fiction books that are long and boring. We will read almost anything that is handed to us.

Since we are twins, many people have trouble telling us apart, hopefully while you read our reviews and learn our taste in books you will (have fun figuring out our different tastes and styles in reading and writing) also get to know us individually as well.

You can follow us on Twitter @maciandzoe or on Facebook at facebook.com/maciandzoe we will post links for all of our new posts there.

Happy reading, we are so excited you have found us.

Maci & Zoe
