Just curious about what people are reading out there in the world. Have you read anything exciting that you would like to suggest to our fellow librarians?
I have 3 suggestions: YA, Tween and Picture book.
I finished reading Vanishing Girls by Lauren Oliver the other day. I really like this author and have never been disappointed by her work.
It is about two sisters who become very distant after a car accident. The animosity between the two sisters and trying to find a bridge to heal their broken relationship is well written and emotional. It is a page turner and has a fantastic twist.
For anyone who liked We Were Liars by E. Lockhart , I’ll Give you the Sun by Jandy Nelson, Hate List by Jennifer Brown or Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell.
The book that has caught my attention and I highly recommend is Rain Reign by Ann Martin. This book is perfect for students who like to read reality fiction, who like stories about dogs or just those who like having their heart strings tugged.
This is a story about a girl who loves homonyms and her dog. Rose is a high-functioning autistic girl who has some trouble at school and at home. On top of everything, her dog that means everything to her, disappears during a rain storm. How Rose deals with searching for her dog and her relationships at school makes this a fantastic read about human compassion.
The Book with No Pictures by B.J. Novak is hilarious. Who would think that this book would be anything since it literally has no pictures. This is a must for storytime – just be ready to leave your inhibitions behind!
