I'll let you know. :) The points really are just a plus. Not important :)
I really liked what you are trying to do with this group, so I thought some of my great Goodreads friends would enjoy it as well.

Vicki Oh I definitely spend more time on Goodreads than facebook. I look forward to being part of the group as it grows.

Alyssa (alysssareads) I came across this group accidentally. YA novels are a huge soft spot of mine. When I saw y'all were reading a John Green book I just had to join.

Liz (thatswhatlizread) Hey everyone! I'm Liz. I'm a new member of this group. I'm 22 and I LOVE YA books. I don't really I'll ever stop loving them, so this group is perfect for me! I recently started a YA book blog. Still trying to gain more followers, so if you want to visit my blog (and maybe even become a follower) I'd really appreciate it!

K.C. Neal (kcneal) | 16 comments Hi there, I'm Kate and I just joined the group. I'm an adult and I love YA books, hee! It's funny, for a long time I considered my YA reads a diversion, you know, the books I read in between the "real" books on my reading list. But the thing is, the YA viewpoint just makes for some really great stories and there are some amazing YA authors out there.

Looking forward to getting to know you. :)

Niven | 12 comments Hi! My name is Niven and I love reading YA books. I've just finished my BA and in one of my classes, some women and I were discussing the lack of YA book clubs for adults, so we are starting our own. I stumbled onto goodreads.com by pure luck and then found your group. I'm excited to read some reviews and discuss books. One of my favorite series is The Mortal Instruments as well as The Hunger Games.

Nice to meet you! My name is Jacqueline Seewald.
I'm the author of a new YA novel entitled STACY'S SONG. I've taught high school English as well as writing courses at the university level. I've also worked as both an academic and school librarian.

message 43: by Samie (new)

Samie | 4 comments Hey everyone! I'm new to the group, but not to goodreads. I've had one for a while, just to keep track of what I've read and want to read, but recently I decided to get more involved with the site and I found this group which seemed perfect for me because I love YA. My sister always asks when I actually read books with "literary merit", so I'm happy to find people who still think YA is good.

message 49: by Casey (new)

Casey (caey) | 6 comments Hi all! I am new to goodreads, just discovered it and think it is awesome! I'm in my mid twenties and have recently become addicted to reading paranormal romance, urban fantasy, etc. (mainly YA) but since none of my friends are really into reading these types of books, I have nobody to talk to, gush about, or obsess over these stories with! I'd love to join in on some discussions, get some good books recos, etc. Thanks! PS, friend me if you have any interest in starting a discussion about Lauren Oliver's Delerium. This is by far my favorite book so far from this genre (I thought it was amazing, disturbing, beautiful!!!) and I'm very curious to hear what other people think about it. Thanks!


Read for your future! (readforyourfuture) | 10 comments Hi I'm Lora and I am Goodreadsalic! I am addicted to it and the discussions and the people are awesome. You can email me if you want and be my friends. I love to discuss books. I havent read Delirium by I am an advocate for my school I recieve books from authors and review them and then Donate them to the Middletown High school Library. Lauren Oliver just wrote me and offered a Delirioum book to us. I am reading WITHER and OMG its so awesome I cant put it down. It is awesome. I am 43 but i only read YA. The sex is minimul and the stories are awesome. Anyway Welcome to the Goodreads it is addictive.
