Andrea | 3 comments Hey y'all, I'm Andrea.

My favorite book is City of Lost Souls, or any of the books from the Mortal Instruments.

I'm currently reading Evermore.

My favorite young adult genre is fantasy or romance.

I honestly can't think of any of the worst books I have read.

I want to join this group because I was sent a request and it looks like a pretty fantastically rad group.

message 14: by Jim (new)

Jim Power (jimpower) My name is Jim Power and I am a Canadian writer published internationally by over 60 magazines and newspapers, including by the Smithsonian and many of the top outdoors magazines in North America. I have a long history of publishing fiction, with dozens of short stories in New York magazines and seven published novels in 2013/2014. I studied Honours English at St. Mary's University and majored in Russian Literature at Dalhousie before becoming a writer. I hitchh-hiked tens of thousands of miles in my youth.

I saw this group and did not want to intrude, but I have written a young adult novel called The End of the Line. It is an interracial romance story and I hope that someday some of you may read it.

It's the one thing I wanted to publish before I leave this Earth. Some of you may be writers, or may one day become writers, so you may understand what I mean at some point.

It can be found on many sites, including Amazon.com in both ebook and paperback:

http://www.amazon.com/End-Line-Jim-Po...

If none of you are interested, please accept my apology for disturbing you. If you would like to read a sample of this novel,go to the address above.

All the best,
Jim Power

Welcome to the group Andrea thanks for joining!!:)


message 16: by Amanda (new)

Amanda | 1 comments Hey, I'm Amanda.
My favorite book as of right now until something new replaces it would be "In the Forest of the Night".

Ironically I am currently reading "The Fault in Our Stars"

My favorite genre would definitely be romance. I love a good love story.


The worst book I ever read was "Twilight" another one topped this but it isn't young adult, so I had to leave it out.

I joined this group because, even though i'm an adult I love young adult great easy reads.


message 17: by karin (new)

karin (karinhammarlund) | 1 comments Hi! My name is Karin. Call me Karen please ^^

1. It's hard to name just one book. The Book Theif 'cause I just read it and still have some feels about it.

2. The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. Not a YA but my dad recommended it to me.

3. Fantasy-Romance. No love-triangles please tho. Beautiful Creatures is a god example. But really I read just about anything.

4. I can't think of the WORST one but I really didn't like The Cunning Man by Celia Rees.

5. I love finding out about new books and reads and my tbr list is constantly growing.

Danielle | 2 comments Hey! I'm Danielle :)
all time favorite book: Will Grayson, Will Grayson
book I'm currently reading: Pretties, The Virgin Suicides, and The Great Gatsby
favorite genre of young adult books: dystopian
the worst book I have read: 10 Things to do before I die
I want to be in this group because I don't have anyone to talk about books with or to get recommendations from. I think this will be a fun group to just talk about books and help each other when in need of a new read!

Hi! My name is Bonnie, and since I'm probably older than dirt my favorites and least favorites change by what I've read recently and what I can remember beyond the lunch I had yesterday.

My all time favorite book is probably The Stand by Stephen King. If we're talking recently it would probably be a three-way between series (and not single books) Hunger Games, Divergent, and Wool.

I just finished reading Virulent: The Release, and tonight I finished Monument 14.

Favorite YA genre is without a doubt dystopian, especially since I just completed the first manuscript for a new YA dystopian series with Revell, called Thunder: Stone Braide Chronicles.

The worst book recently was Allegient. If I hadn't been reading it on my iPad I'd have thrown the sucker at the wall!

I hope to get some good recommendations on dystopian reads. I'm a voracious reader and it "cleans my palate" between deadlines.

Welcome! I would've done the same thing, throwing alligent at the wall, but then I would have ruined it and it was a gift.

LOL...that book was sooooo annoying. We have a joke among writer circles that you can kill anything BUT THE DOG. Well now I've got a new one to add! Anything BUT the heroine!
