Hi, my name is Greg. I like to read, but i really don't have any friends that do, so i don't really have anyone to discuss books with when I'm reading them . My favorite series is The Hunger Games series. I recently finished the second book in The Maze Runner Series, The Scorch Trials, and I just started reading Divergent. I'd be happy to talk to anyone about these books

I'm so glad to have found this portal in the Nook universe. I'm not a teen anymore, but I am an author with a contemporary YA novel coming out in 2013. I'm also an avid reader of YA, and I look forward to discussing our favorites. Nice to meet you all!

Hello everyone, I am Haven and I have to say that no, sadly, I am not a teenager anymore, but I do really enjoy reading teen books. I have a love of reading and anything, whether fiction or nonfiction, as long as it is good, I will read. I spend most of my time reading at the bookstore on my breaks and so forth, and I really love the paranormal the most in the teen area, although I have found a few that I have liked that wasn't in that genre. Glad to meet all of you.

Hey there everyone! My name is Tiffany and I will be fifteen in a few days. I am a young writer and an aspiring photographer. I heard the Writing Room was shut down, so I hope I could post some of my stories on here. I am excited to get to know all of you. (:

Hey! I'm Audie. I'm 17 I hail from Idaho (yes, we do have more than just potatoes here,). I love writing lyrics and composing music. I love reading books that can take you to another world or make you fit into the protagonists' shoes. I like indie music drinking too many Italian sodas at flying M (my favorite coffee garage) and people watching at walmart.

Hi everyone! I'm brand new to this B&N book club thing so I'm kind of struggling through it, but excited to join in. I am, unfortunately, no longer a teenager, but I still love reading YA books. I review YA & Middle Grade books on my blog, PidginPea's Book Nook (link in my signature... I hope, if I did it right). Looking forward to talking books with everyone!
Come visit my YA & Middle Grade book review blog, PidginPea's Book Nook! : )

My name is Sang Kromah. I am a Communications Specialist, sometimes model with a lot of notable appearances to boot, and did I mention that I am YA Fiction author, and author of Concealed?
I love to read! Most recently I completed the Hush, Hish saga by Becca Fitzpatrick, and I must say, fallen angels are my newest obsession. But I have to say, if you give my debut novel, Concealed a chance, you may soon be obsessed with the story of Bijou and the Djinn.
Concealed is an extraordinarily epic tale that introduces readers to a new thing to fear, the Djinn, and to a narrator with a new kind of voice.
With the release of the second novel in the Concealed series swiftly approaching, the author wants to give new audiences a chance to delve into the world of Concealed before Folon, which means the past in the Mandingo language, hits bookstores this winter.
Some believe that at birth, we’re each born with some sort of guardian angel attached to us, watching from afar, but never seen by the human eye. But they’re wrong. Truth is, it’s not that simple. There are certain people—special people—born of this world and of the other, who need that extra protection…that extra guidance. They go their entire lives unaware other world, and unaware of the existence of their own person watcher that watches from afar. But what happens when fate takes a turn for the worst, and The One who needs the aid of a watcher more than anyone before her can’t be found to be protected?
Bijou Fitzroy is strange. With the chaotic and unwanted gift of being an empath, she has spent her entire life as a sheltered recluse, being home-schooled by her secretive and overprotective grandmother, who never stays long enough in any location for Bijou to ever settle and make friends. Not only does she lack social skills, but her physical appearance is so ethereal that it beckons onlookers to look away before she has he chance to make eye contact. Oh, and it gets even weirder. Besides the occasional tendency to see strange things that no one else seems to notice, sixteen-year-old Bijou has been plagued by semi-prophetic nightmares of strange creatures her entire life; yet she yearns for sleep, because it’s the only place she gets to see him…well, sort of. No matter what Bijou dreams of, the faceless boy is always there like some sort of harbinger of impending danger; always watching, always waiting. And even though his coming always pre-empts chaos, she’s fallen in love with this boy without a face.
When Bijou and her grandmother move to Eldersburg, and she starts to attend the local high school, she meets Sebastian Sinjin, a strange boy, who forces Bijou to question the world around her, and the grandmother she though she knew. Bijou’s world begins to crumble as the creatures from her nightmares begin to take shape in her reality, the faceless boy becomes real, and town locals begin to disappear as she finds herself at the center of a war, she never knew was being fought. Bijou has to stand alone, and be the savior everyone expects her to be.
I hope you'll give it a chance, and I look forward to interacting with you all!

Hi everyone, I'm Morgan and of course I'm an avid reader. Like many others on here, my schedule has not permitted me as much time as I'd like for reading. I'm going for my masters in Social Work so time for reading hasn't been on my side. I'm hoping to manage my time a little better so I Ian catch up on all the books I have!

Hi Everyone, I'm Karla.
Reading and Writing have been my passion since I could first speak!!
I have read maybe more than 500 books in my life so far and I'm only 18
I have written many poems and short stories in the time as well
Since I have started college I haven't been able to read as much as I'd like.
So I'm hoping I'll get some good recommendations and I'll also recommend some of my readings as well!!
Happy Readings Everyone !!!

Hey, I'm not new, well not really.
I haven't been in the B&N community in a long, I mean, a really long time.
I just have a question.
Is this book club only to ask for recommendations or can add add-on story type thing?
Well thank you for reading!!

This is the first post I have made. I am an avid reader. Reading brings joy and peace to me; like living in a dream. I hope to uncover some good recommendations from this group as I do enjoy dystopian fiction.

I read those books as well! The Maze Runner series was great (they just published a prequel btw and it was good as well).
I just finished the Partials series. I liked it.
How are you liking Divergent? I was thinking of reading that series next...
Have you read the Gone series? Six books total I think, but I really enjoyed them! Same dystopian type survival story.
Let me know what you think!
