I slightly discussed this idea with katayla —
but I am SUPER bored procrastinating, so I present to youbooksthatarenot — A reading discussion group and book club for older children's/young adult books, beyond Twilight and Harry Potter.
Remember that series you were in to in 4th, 6th, maybe 8th grade? That you checked out ALL the books from the library of, that you would have totally participated in online fandom for? Also, since you were probably only getting your recommendations from teachers/librarians/parents/friends, you may have missed a few. Or do you want to get acquainted with other books for young adults besides Twilight and Harry Potter? Well, here is your chance to do it and discuss it and meet other people who like the same books as you.
This community will be a reading group in which we rediscover our old favorites and discover new ones that passed us by, but are not the ones that you hear about ALL the time. Examples include A Wrinkle In Time, The Dark is Rising, Call of the Wild, etc.
I promise we will read slowly! Tell your friends! Think of books you want to re-read or read for the first time!
