Just a friendly reminder about our new book group’s first meeting this coming Monday at 7pm at the Starbucks in Arlington Center.
If you haven’t read the book yet, it’s not too late! There are plenty of copies of Dash and Lily’s Book of Dares being held at the circulation desk and it’s a very quick read, I promise.
And don’t forget we’ll be choosing next month’s book, so come with suggestions! If you need ideas here is an extensive collection of lists of best young adult books going back to 1996. There’s also this list of best young adult books for adults. Or check out some YA blogs like Reading Rants (check the lower left for themed lists) or my personal favorite, Forever Young Adult.
One thing to keep in mind is that there need to be available copies in the Minuteman System, so we shouldn’t choose the most popular books out there. Luckily, there’s still a ton of great books to choose from! Here are a few of my suggestions:
Okay For Now by Gary D. Schmidt
Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld
I’ll Be There by Holly Goldberg Sloan
Going Bovine by Libba Bray
Do you have any book ideas? Leave them in the comments, or just bring them on Monday. See you then!
