Jessica (endless_chapters) | 3 comments Hi Kristen! I'm Jessica from @endless_chapters 😊 Thank you for creating this book club. Some of my favourite books are TFIOS, The Timekeeper and The Accident Season. So all of the authors of those books are technically my fave authors as well haha.

I join this group because I've always wanted to join a YA book club, to get to know more recent YA releases and discuss about YA books, hence here I am. 😄

Bekah (tangledknitter) Hi! I'm Bekah (@the.tangled.knitter), 24, and I love Harry Potter, Divergent, and anything by John Green. Though I tend to read anything and everything!

I joined this group as I don't have a book group locally, and I'd love to get to know more YA titles to enjoy!

message 6: by Hill (new)

Hill | 3 comments Hi everyone! My name is Hillary. I'm 26. I'm just getting back into reading for fun. I haven't read too many YA books. I've read the Harry Potter series, The Hunger Games series, the first book in the Raven cycle, the first book in the Matched series. I'm looking for books that will get me excited and people to discuss the books with during the summer! I liked that this group was small and new. I can't wait to connect with people who love YA. I'm hoping for book suggestions and great conversations with awesome people!!

My favourite author is Jay McLean with all her books. I have bookish instagram (djevoka_sa_knjigama) so we can follow there also. :) I'm really looking foward to meet you 💖


message 12: by Emily ☾ (new)

Emily ☾ Hi! My name is Emily and I am 19 years old! My favorite books would have to be The Book Thief, A Court of Thorns and Roses series, and The Mortal Instruments series (but there are many more). I love books from Sarah J. Maas, John Green, Cassandra Clare, and Rainbow Rowell. I joined the club because I’m obsessed with reading (especially if it’s YA fantasy).

Haha same here, I also read the first book in the Matched series. Did you like it? I'm hoping to finish the series.


message 15: by Kimmy (new)

Kimmy | 3 comments Hi everyone! My name is Kimmy, I'm 30 years old and I've recently got addicted to YA. MY boyfriends picked out a series for me Throne of Glass by Sarah Maas and I fell in love. I would have to say currently my favorite YA author is Sarah Maas but I still have more authors to check out to see if that changes. I've joined the club because 1) I want to be more social and have some people to discuss books with 2) to get some ideas on future series to read... not that I need more books at the moment lol.

Hey Cara! I loved Matched. I couldn't put it down. (Possible spoilers ahead for those who haven't read it)......I am totally emotionally invested in the characters. Cassia is such an awesome and likable main character. Ky's story is so sad, but I haven't really fallen in love with him yet (I don't know why!!). Xander is so loyal to Cassia. Everyone needs someone like Xander in their life! I thought the dystopian world was well thought out and made sense. And that's really important for me when I'm reading a book. I hate when I have unanswered questions about the society in which the people live, how the people live their lives, etc. The author really needs to think of every detail. With Matched, I think Ally Condie did a great job developing Cassia's world. I can't wait to read Crossed. I want to read it soon before I forget all the little details from Matched. What about you? What did you like about Matched?

lostinstacks | 1 comments Hi I’m Temily! This is such a great idea! I’m 28. I love reading but I’m relatively new to bookstagram and goodreads. I read anything and everything. Sarah Maas is my favourite, as well as the Grishaverse and Harry Potter. My favourite books are probably Fight Club and Alice in Wonderland, bit of extremes. Lovely to meet everyone!

Yes to all of these! The only one I haven't read yet is the Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy, but that's one our BOTM so I'll finally get around to reading it. As for contemporary, I'm also trying to branch into it as well. I just read Geekerella, and it was an amazing and really fun read- highly recommend!

Hey there Siiri! Welcome to the club! Don't hate me, but I still haven't read any of Cassandra Clare's books. I don't know how since they are so popular haha I'll read them eventually, maybe we will read them for the BOTM sometime.

Book Lovers Anonymous (book_lovers_anonymous) | 2 comments Hey there, I’m Carole (@book_lovers_anonymous), I’m 23 years old and all I really read is YA; fantasy and sci-fi are my preferred areas, but I also enjoy a good contemporary every now and then. Some of my favorite series include A Court of Thorns and Roses, Throne of Glass, and The Inheritance Cycle. Some of my favorite authors are Sarah J Maas, Christopher Paolini, and John Green. I joined this group because I always want to be able to talk about the books I read with people, but no one I know reads the same genres as me or they just don’t read at all. So I’m super excited to be a part of this and get to know you all!
