Middle school students have reading interests that run the gamut from Diary of a Wimpy Kid to Twilight. Sometimes as a parent it is hard to know what is age appropriate for your child. Through this blog, I will try to help parents make informed decisions about what is available in our library. I am hoping that this blog will be a resource for our parents, and that we can all work together to make our students life-long readers!

Our Students' Favorite Books, Part 1

I tend to slack off a little in the summer and read the books I want to read instead of so many juvenile and young adult fiction books.  Since I only post reviews of books that are in our middle school library on this blog, I thought I would take this opportunity of listing some of the favorite books and series of our students from this past school year.  I'm always asked for recommendations, but I'll let the kids do the recommending this time.  Here they are in different categories and in no particular order:

Favorite Spy/Mystery Books or Series
1. Gallagher Girls Series by Ally Carter (also the same author's Heist Society Series)
2.  Alex Rider Series by Anthony Horowitz
3.  Jason Steed Series by Mark Cooper

Realistic Fiction
1.  Wonder by R.J. Palacio
2.  This is What Happy Looks Like by Jennifer E. Smith
3.  The Daughters Series by Joanna Philbin
4.  Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea
5.  Anything by author Kasie West (On the Fence, The Distance Between Us, The Fill-In Boyfriend)
6.  The Penderwicks Series by Jeanne Birdsall
