OK, there's been a bunch of kids book swaps, but what about teen books?  There's so much good stuff out there now, or you could do your favorite book from when you were a teen, or you're fave book now if you are a teen...
C'mon, who doesn't want to make King Dork, Judy Blume's Forever, or Scott Westerfeld crafts?

Scott Westerfeld crafts, ftw. There are a lot of crappy "young adult" books out there, but there's also some pretty damn good ones. Only...what can you craft out of a Scott Westerfeld book o-o;? I've mostly only read the Uglies series (going to be a mooovie!) and So Yesterday, though I want to read Peeps and the Midnighters. Some people might be interested in those one vampire books too, by Stephanie Meyers. I've yet to read them. I pick them up, but then I feel embarassed at how silly they sound and grab another book, haha.

Midnighters=awesome.  And actually the one I was thinking of for crafty potential.

I'm 17, and I'm a nerd. Seriously. I love to read. What would the swap entail? Send a copy of the book, crafts related to the book, or both?

Peeps is a seriously awesome book, but the sequel Last Days isn't as good. But everyone should read Peeps. Every second chapter is a mini one on parasites. I started reading it at like 2 pm one saturday and stayed up till 5 am on sunday to finish it.

I guess I was thinking whatever.  When you signed up (in theory), you'd answer questions about your fave author, books, etc.

I'm a teen services librarian so I think this would be a lot of fun.  What if we crafted for whatever book / author our partner likes and sent a copy of a ya book that we like.  That way everyone would get a craft from something they like and a new (probably used) book.  Any other ideas?

ooo, yarn_tart--where do you do your librarianing?  That's what I am too.
I like the idea of crafting for the other person and forcing a book you like on them.

And bombgirl, we're not even going to start talking about all the trashy and/or fluffy crap I secretly love.  VC Andrews, anyone? Smiley

Well, I am a teen, but don't read very many teen novels. My favorite author seems to be Nora Roberts, since the 4 books I absolutely adore are by her.
 However I have read a lot of Lorrain McDaniel books, and love them! I'm pretty sure their all teen books. But they're sooo sad. I'm pretty sure I've liked a lot of other teen books also, but my mind is drawing a blank.
 Anyway, I think I would still be interested in this swap. 

Oh!! Does The Secret Garden book count??? And is their a Peter Pan book? I can't believe I haven't check that out already!
