Member of the Month: July, 2017: tarafarah7

Please help me in congratulating tarafarah7 for being our July Member of the Month!

It's only fitting that she receive the honor this month, as it will mark her having been a member for one whole year.
If you haven't seen her around, just take a look at the thread for Tom Odell's song, Another Love. Her take on it is definitely worth reading.
Another thing I should mention is her answer to why she likes reading:
tarafarah7 wrote:To learn something new, discover new lands, fall in love, to smile, to cry, to laugh!
I must agree. :tiphat:

She's admitted to being obsessed with Sweet Valley High and Sweet Valley Twins when she was younger, and can offer suggestions in the young adult genre (for this she has my gratitude).
A fan of cozy mysteries, non-fiction (I must agree yet again :tiphat: ), and Mitch Albom. I think it's safe to say eclectic is a good word to describe her. A better one, however, would be teacher. Let me be the first to say how awesome that is.

Congratulations, tarafarah7, and a happy one whole year on the forums!

Oh my!! I cannot believe this! Thank you so much! I was just saying that I've been a member for about year because I joined around the time of my birthday (7-7-77 ?). I can't believe you guys knew all these fun facts about me...and so nice to mention my post on Tom Odell's song, Another Love..you made my day! I feel so lucky to be part of the BEST book club around and honored to have all of you in my life. You are all amazing! Thank you again...Tara

Congrats Tarafarah! Well deserved! We have a tradition where the MOTM wears something on his/her head for the entire month. What will you wear? :)

Thank you, @bookowlie! I feel so honored to have been chosen, being that there are so many amazing members in our book club!!

Now...I hope you are kidding about the MOTM headwear! ? I'll skip the crown and wear sunglasses on my head each day instead. Deal? ?
