The Best Teen Book Club Online!

Just came back from a writing retreat, and Little Willow pointed me to this sweet review by examiner.com

"The best teen book club I've found online is Readergirlz....The club is run by a group of talented teen book authors and has recently paired with GuysLitWire....The club is totally low pressure, but also very supportive and a lot of fun to participate in. It easily has the most engaged group of members I've seen in an online book club."

Thanks, Katie Zenke, Austin's Children's Book Examiner!

Props to every readergirl who makes our site so fantastic!

Hey there! You can win a Kindle with the first chapter of Jessica Bendinger's new novel The Seven Rays here:
The story focuses on a teenage girl named Beth Michaels as she journeys through mystery, magic, and love. The book will be released November 24th.
It would definitely be cool to start the fall semester with a new Kindle if I do say so myself.

This type of blogs is very recreational, call attention because of them you always learn something useful and not as in other blogs that are a waste of time and learn nothing. Congratulations for this blog and hopefully they are more like this, I regret to say that I've only found the Generic Viagra and this with the material of common interest!

-OMG this is exactly what I was looking for, I love all these books!

-Do you have to sign up or something?

-O.k, now I have a question!
I'm a huge reader and read mostly YA, i'm way ahead of my grade in reading comprehension, and have read so many books they are becoming predictable and boring! I need to start a new series fast, but I don't trust my judgement anymore and need some suggestions! I like fantasy, FICTION (it can be realistic), and some magic or mystery.

Hello Readers,

I am pleased to introduce myself as the proud, up-and-coming author of “HEAVENLY HELL – Hindered Happiness”, the first in my trilogy. I hope to become the next “Canadian” version of Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight”…with a slight twist - minus the vampires, plus angels and demons. It is an incredibly intriguing love story between a teenage angel and a teenage demon! For more, check out my youtube video http://youtube/RCZCkLBrYik

I am trying to make a difference in the world by donating partial proceeds from book sales to a different charity each month. So it is NOT just an ordinary novel, but one that I hope will inspire a generation of teenagers with its powerful themes. Please purchase a copy of the novel and pass the word on!

Thank you for your support and trying to help me make the world a better place.
