Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hey everyone! My name is Jess and this is my first time doing this. It sounds really exciting!

 

I'm 25, a recent college graduate, and recently relocated from Michigan to Alabama. I don't know a soul here, so all my spare time has been spent reading haha. I hope I get confirmed and have the opportunity for some great discussions with you all!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi!  I am a child psychologist and avid reader, with YA being my favorite.  I love being able to share the love of a book with a client.  I read constantly and love reading about the '20s and '30s.  I am very much looking forward to participating.  This will be my first ARC!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi everyone!  My name is Wendy and I am from the Atlanta, GA area.....If I am one of the lucky ones to be chosen to review this book, this will be my second ARC book. It has been a fun experience.

 

My life revolves around books...both in print and also on the nook. I usually have at least 3-4 going at a time.

 

Looking forward to meeting and getting to know everyone soon!

 

Happy reading!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi all!  I haven't done a first look book for a long time!  Hopefully I will be confirmed and will get to read the book with you all.  I am a stay at home mom to 6 month old twin boys, so that is what currently takes up my time. That, and reading when they go to bed!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi, I just signed up for the arc Vixen and can't wait! This is my first book club although I have been looking for one for quite awhile. I love reading and mainly focus on teen and asian fiction. I'm looking forward to having a group discussion for once.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hi everyone!

I was confirmed for this book early this morning. I'm excited to read this one because I love the historical feel in teen novels. Can't wait to discuss this one in Nov.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

To: Cosbie - it may take a day or two; for me it took only 1 day before I got confirmed

 

Yeah I just got confirmed.  Looking forward to the real honest dialog of the book.  Cool!

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Aprilh:  I noticed how many folks are really not "YA" or the age of the book characters and think that is really interesting.

 

I like to wonder back to the younger years and think "what I know now-if I only knew then what I know now" type of pondering

Re: Welcome and Introductions

Hello, fellow readers!

 

This is my thirteenth First Look Book Club, but my first Teen selection.  I am looking forward to reading a romance novel set in the Roaring Twenties. 

 

Once again, thank you Barnes & Noble, for broadening my bookshelf.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

I know what you mean about the high-maintenance!  I had my husband schedule one of his weeks of vacation for when ours had their spay & neuter done earlier this year!  With a boy and a girl, it was imperative that it be done before we became fur-grandparents!  I wanted one of us to be home to ensure they didn't rough house too much and hurt themselves for a few days after their surgeries.  But they are totally worth the extra effort, I love them like they were little kiddos!

To: TudorRose - I like your optimism about the 'brown truck';  I am waiting to see the truck come down the street; such a "kid in a toy store" feeling about receiving a book in the mail & free on top of that!  what is there not to like?

When I was 14 I worked in a childrens book distribution warehouse that would frequently receive ARCS. I had no idea what they were at the time but one caught my eye. I took it home and fell in love with that author. After that I was carting them home by the box load.

Re: Welcome and Introductions

To: StewiesMom - do you read any animal novels?

 

I wanted to be a veterinarian in college & then changed (mainly due to the biochemistry & trig) but I have always shared a love of animals and the little critters.

I started out reading James Herriot books on the animals & developed a love of reading with those & Hemingway novels.

 

I love the cat mystery series- even went to B&N when the author came to our area to promote her newest cat mystery book & had several signed.

I couldn't agree more.  I just get all giddy when the brown truck shows up with new books for me!  Of course that happens way to often, but what can you do?  I'm really excited about this selection.  I think it will be a great read and lots of fun to discuss.
