Hey guys! Tell us your name, some of your favourite YA books and something interesting about yourself. :)

I'm Skye, I love Harry Potter and I am a Ravenclaw and a Pukwudgie.

Luke Taylor Hi! I was invited to this group by Skye! Thank you, Skye!! :D

My name is Luke, I am a writer and musician, and I am the author of five novels including the multiple POV ensemble YA Fantasy Vault of Dreams.

My favorite YA writer in the universe is Leigh Bardugo, who inspired me to write YA with Six of Crows. My other favorite YA books are Julie Eshbaugh's Ivory and Bone and Roshani Chokshi's The Star-Touched Queen. I've been reading Harry Potter for the first time and loving it so much and am 100% Hufflepuff. My favorite YA contemporary is Eleanor & Park, and I do love The Grisha Trilogy, but did lose interest in Throne of Glass, though I really loved the first two books, Crown of Midnight being my favorite. :D

I am currently recording two albums with my band(s), one is indie rock, the other is metal. :D

I would be so very happy if this group would like to read Vault of Dreams for their first buddy read and we can discuss the book if you'd like. The ebook is only $0.99 on Amazon.

I accept every friend request and I'm very happy to be in this group and to meet you all. Thank you Skye! :D

I wouldn't have joined if you hadn't invited me, so, I'm very thankful for that! And I think you'll love VoD! It's my favorite book I've written and I would be so glad if you wanted to buddy read it!!! :D

Michelle Yang (michy_) | 5 comments Hey! My name is Michelle.

My favourite [completed] YA series are the Eon/Eona duology by Alison Goodman, The Darkest Powers trilogy by Kelley Armstrong, the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo, The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer, The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater, and The Winner's trilogy by Marie Rutkoski.

I also really love the Mistborn trilogy (era 1. Haven't started the 2nd era yet) by Brandon Sanderson.

For contemporary standalones, my two most favourite ones are The Start of Me and You by Emery Lord and Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson. I also really love Rainbow Rowell's stuff (E&P and Attachments are my faves from her).

Since people are talking about their Hogwarts and Ilvermorny houses, I'm Ravenclaw and Thunderbird.

And I guess another interesting thing about me is that I'm also a really big fan of almost anything Disney. It's just one of those things that just stuck with me ever since I was little and I sing along and listen to the songs almost every day.

I wish all the best for this group and I hope a lot of us can be really active! :)

Welcome Michelle!! Glad you joined :)
I love The Lunar Chronicles!! I haven't read any of the other books you mentioned, but quite a few of them are on my tbr.
Yay! Fellow Ravenclaw!
I also love Disney. I can be found singing Disney songs quite often. XD
I hope you enjoy the group!

I am a crazy fan of Frozen. So if you break out in any of the songs from it I will gladly join in but I might start crying, too. xD

Hey Jamie!!! :D I actually still haven't gotten to Falling Kingdoms yet but I'm hoping I can get to it soon cuz I keep hearing good things about it!

you should definitely get to some of them if you can! Honestly, not enough people I follow have read Eon/Eona before which makes me sad cuz it's my fave YA series and i never have anyone to talk about it with!

I'm Shine and I love reading mystery books. I currently have too many favorite mysteries books.

I love writing my own mysteries that involves heroes and villains.

I cried/sobbed/wailed/bawled when Darth Vader died in "StarWars 6: The Last Jedi" and when Loki 'died' in "Thor 2: The Dark World" and when Sir Thomas Sharpe died in "Crimson Peak". (CURSE YOU LADY LUCILLE SHARPE FOR MURDERING THOMAS!)


message 12: by imts (new)

imts (heirofinkandpaper) | 1 comments Thank you, Skye, for sending me an invite to this group! I'm Imtesal (pronounced im•ti•SAHL, by the way :P) and am still unsure whether I'm a Hufflepuff or Slytherin. (Pottermore says Slytherin, but I think I'm more Hufflepuff, so...) My Ilvermorny house is Thunderbird.

Some of my favorite series include The Infernal Devices by Cassandra Clare, The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic, The Raven Cycle by Maggie Stiefvater, the Six of Crows duology by Leigh Bardugo, The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer... and plenty of others, don't worry :D

Standalones: I'll Give You The Sun by Jandy Nelson, anything Jane Austen, The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt... and again, many others :P

Nice to meet y'all! ^-^

message 22: by A.L. (new)

A.L. Buehrer Hi, you guys can call me A.L. or Buehrer, or anything, really, as long as you mean it in the best way. I'm honestly here because I want to be a better fangirl. I've read little speculative YA, but it is the genre I write and I need to be more familiar with it.
I'm actually not a potterhead, but, for the record, I think I'm a Slythern.

Welcome! I would love to read your work!
