I saw your article on and I can't agree more! YA books are pulling in more and more readers. Recently I think this started with the Harry Potter books, and I for one have been pulled into the Twilight series craze. I think it's great that these books, slated for YA, can cross the age line and appeal to adults as well!

My name is Diana S. Zimmerman. I would like to invite all YA book lovers to the worldwide launch of my new fantasy adventure series, "Kandide and the Secret of the Mists."

It will be held on Saturday, April 19th at 11:30 am at Storyopolis, (12348 Ventura Blvd in Studio City); and at The Never Ending Story (94440 W. Sahara Avenue in Las Vegas) on May 10th at 4:00 pm.

There will be Magic Castle Magicians, book readings, musical entertainment and free vanishing garglans magic tricks for all.

Love to meet all of you.

A book I recently read by Victoria Rosendahl is called Bitter Tastes.
It's a great book about a girl who moves to a new school and really tries to fit in, but can't because of this secret she's keeping.
It's a great mystery type book (sort of reminds of Nancy Drew)
If you like Nancy Drew, you'll for sure like this book.


I recently started reading YA books at 41 years old and have found they are wonderful. Of course I have read all of Harry Potter but some new favorites are Libba Bray's about Gemma and Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series. I think it's great how these novels appeal to young and older alike.

I just wanted to thank everyone for helping to make my fantasy adventure book, Kandide and the Secret of the Mists" reach number 4 on best seller list!

Thank you!

Ooooh! This is a point mentioned. I love it when everything in place and in this case is understandable to mere mortals.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
