Each week I participate in The Broke and Bookish’s Top Ten Tuesday. This week is a Rewind week which mean we can choose any topic we prefer.
This week I decided to share the spotlight with some of my students. I asked some of my top Media Center patrons (“My Reader Girls/Boys” is what I affectionately call them) what they’re currently reading. These are the kids that visit the Media Center multiple times a week and the first ones I call when I receive a new book order so they can get first pick! I know we’re not supposed to have favorites, but well…you know. Let’s take a look at their current reads!
Mirage (Winterhaven #2) by Kristi Cook
The Iron Knight (Iron Fey #4) by Julie Kagawa
Finale (Hush, Hush #4) by Becca Fitzpatrick
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
Take a Bow by Elizabeth Eulberg
It’s Not Summer Without You (Summer #2) by Jenny Han
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
Maximum Ride (Manga #3) by James Patterson
The Mark of Athena (Heroes of Olympus #3) by Rick Riordan
The Charmed Return (The Faerie Path #6) by Frewin Jones
So there you have it what real live middle schoolers are actually reading! It seems that most of them are in the middle of series, which makes me happy. I know some people get annoyed that there is a lack of good teen standalones, but as an educator I am partial to series because they motivate my students to keep reading.
Have you read any of these? If not take my students’ word and give them a try!
