Hi Everyone,


I wanted to introduce you all to a new YA Blog in town. Two of the teens that frequent the Pleasant Ridge teen book club recently started their own blog called, “Reading Recluse.” I asked them to provide a short bio and this is what they had to say:

“Hey we’re Jen and Shruthi! We are avid Potterheads who recently decided that we need a hobby. Since we both happen to enjoy reading, we decided to start a book blog to catalogue all our thoughts and opinions of the various books we are reading.”

Check out their blog at and these two recently reviewed contemporary novels:
