The Inaugural Online Teen Book Club

Dear readers,

We are seeing the rise and rise of teen literature, with a variety of genres and a plethora of brilliant authors. But how do we find more to read? What should we be avoiding? And which book handles issues the best? Bookclubs have always been the heart of the book industry, the word of mouth that has given authors the boost needed to become famous. And we know teens love to read: the superstardom of authors who write for teens and young adults proves it.

With this in mind, we are beginning our online Teen Book Club! To start, we will get together on Twitter every fortnight to share and discuss great teen and young adult reads. Based on the success of the first few, we will plot a course for tweet-ups at stores and other book-related events.

So whether you are a reader, blogger, author or publisher, we would love it if you could join us with the hashtag #EBTeenReads live from 2pm – 4pm Wednesday 18th of September. 

Again, this is a project just taking flight, so let’s see where it takes us and hopefully it’ll be the greatest online bookclub!

    This is a great idea – but what about non-teens? For instance: ever-so-slightly-over-teenagers-who-may-actually-be-approaching-serious-adulthood? Or would that be too lengthly for the name?

    This is exciting news. I’m a YA author, and will definitely try to join in the discussions.

    This is an awesome initiative! Is “Clockwork Princess” by Cassandra Clare the first book to be reviewed? I agree with Natasha on the ever-so-slightly-over-teenagers-who-may-actually-be-approaching-serious-adulthood book club… maybe just shorten the name lol

    I’ll be there for the first hour!
    To Natasha (above), I’m sure anyone with a love or interest in YA is welcome. Besides, you never really leave high school!

    I agree with Natasha. How about a “twenteens” division? 😉

    This really is a fantastic idea. I don’t really like to call myself a YA. I’m more of an amature; you know, someone who does something because they love it. I’m not published. I’m not even studying anything even remotely related to this field (I’m a med student). But I really enjoy writing. And according to my friends (I’m inclined to call them biased), I’m not too bad at all. Anyway, this is definitely something that should be carried forth.
    And thank you, Insaaf, for sharing this with me. =)
