I'm reading The Raven Boys since I already had it in my TBR stack.

So, if you're interested, here's the link to learn more about the group.

Here's also the page to introduce yourself.

Hope to see you there.

Happy Reading.


  1. I've heard of Good Reads through a lot of other authors. Sounds like some interesting books.

  2. Thanks for signing up to announce my book, Beverly.

    Good year to read Ender's Game since the movie comes out soon.

  3. Good Reads is fun, Susanne, but it can be time consuming. I haven't belonged to this group long, but they giveaway books that are being discussed (if you're lucky to win one) and the authors sometimes visit and answer questions. I post most of my reviews there too.

  4. Looking forward to it, Diane. I may get a copy too.

    I didn't know they were making a movie of Ender's Game. Will watch for it.

  5. Sounds really cool! Thanks for sharing.
