Emma LeMieur

We are a group of friends who LOVE reading and want to share that love with our peers.

Hey, we’re the Book Buds, and we’re focused on bringing you a fun podcast about the books we love. We feel that some students don’t appreciate literature as much as they could, and we are committed to changing this by sharing books we think others will enjoy.

About us-

Alyssa Haus: I’m a Junior, and I have enjoyed reading for as long as I can remember. I will read just about whatever you put in front of me.

Emma LeMieur: I’m a junior, and I’ve loved reading since 5th grade. I read mostly fantasy, sci-fi, and queer coming-of-age stories.

Ethan Johnstone: I’m a junior, and I started to enjoy reading in 9th grade. I mostly read fantasy, stories with queer characters, and dystopian fiction.
