Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments Today, Crazy For Young Adult Books turns one year old! Thank you to everyone who has made this group into a success.

Dear Group Members,

Thank you for making this past year so enjoyable for me. I have met so many amazing people who love to read. I love talking about books with all of you and without you guys, this group would be nothing. I created this group one year ago today. Never did I think we would have over 3,000 members in just one year. My overall goal for the group was 100 members. We all get along so well together. We have never even met in real life. We cheer each other on, help each other out, and I think that's amazing. Thanks again, you guys are the best and stay CRAZY for young adult books!

Love,
Jacquelyn

Dear Gisbelle,

Without you, this group wouldn't be half of what it is now.You are the best moderator I could have working alongside me. You were helping me from the very beginning. That's how I added you as moderator. I asked you a question and you were so helpful and kind and that's the kind of person I wanted to be working with! You are so amazing! Your banners and logos are awesome! The challenges you brew up in your head are fabulous! The organization you bring to the group is wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you, for making this year so amazing!

Love,
Jacquelyn

Wow! One year already! Time does fly!

If any of you want to comment below with letters to Gisbelle and I or all of the other members, or just want to let us know how you like the group, or want to ask Gisbelle and I questions about the group, comment below with your letter/ thoughts/ questions.

Thanks again! This has been a wonderful year, with wonderful people, while devouring wonderful books!

Gisbelle | 27299 comments Dear Everyone

It's been one year! I can hardly believe it! Since the beginning, you guys have been so active which helps make our group a fun place for all of us. Together we have shared laughs, and even swoon over those hot heros. And don't forget about the times we got all frustrated when we read those awful, awful books. It's great to share those moments with you all. I love you guys so much.

Dear Jacquelyn

I still remember the first time I got that personal message from you. At that time I had no plan to moderate any group. I'm glad I agreed to work on this group with you. It's been a wonder journey! I couldn't have asked for a better partner. Thanks for being supportive throught those tough times (you know what I'm talking about.) I'm looking forward to more wonderful years to come.

Lots of love,

Gisbelle

Happy Anniversary!!!

Thank you Gisbelle and Jacquelyn for giving us such an awesome GR Group to meet in and for making all the reading activities!!

Truly, you guys are amazing!

And Thank You to the Crazy for YA members! You guys are such a great gaggle of crazies to hang and chat books with! You've pushed me to my reading limits (honestly, how many buddy reads can we start on one day? How many can we read at one time? LOL!) and you've challenged my thinking on books and made me enjoy and love reading even more than I did.

And you've all helped me find books and stories and characters to love all the more because we shared the stories together.

Happy Anniversary! I look forward to many more days of sharing books, awful or wonderful, together :)

lol absolutely! I even remember a time when you guys waited for me because I'd lost the book in my youngest daughter's book shelf! LOL!

Jacquelyn (jacquelynreads) | 19024 comments LOL. Well we wouldn't want to move on without you! :D You are a great buddy reading partner! You really get me thinking about what I read.

I love coming onto good reads to talk with everyone about reading. Many days it is the highlight of my day and always makes me smile (and often laugh)!!
