“The Forgotten Garden” by Kate Morton is pretty good. I’m always looking for good reads! I just have to tell you that in the very beginning. My son too is an avid reader and I can barely keep him in books to read!

This one always gets me thinking.
Cassandra Clare’s series is really good. Also from the young adult genre try “A Great and Terrible Beauty” by Libba Bray (also a 3 book series with “Rebel Angels” and “The Sweet Far Thing”). I’ve read many of those, Hunger Games being my favorite.

Sarah’s Key is really tragic but if you can push through it, I loved the message of the book. My other favorites include: The Twilight Series, Pride & Prejudice, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Series of 3 books), The Da Vinci Code and The Other Boleyn Girl. Thanks for the list!

Thanks everyone for your great suggestions!

The fourth one just came out and I can’t wait to get my teeth into it. A good book is like a great friend! iBooks/iTunes. It is an easy YA read. thanks for the reccommends.

I loved his Fablehaven series. Another great book is Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt, about the same time period of The Help but a little lighter in tone. I’ll have to check out those & some of the others you mentioned. Although your daughter’s will enjoy it too! Anyone with any desire to run should read it. The Evolution of Calpernia Tate Thanks for the boys suggestions.

Enjoyed a morning hi, Pulled out the Halloween decor and even though I d, Not sure what Halloween celebrations will look lik, October is my second favorite month! I’ve been wanting to read the Uglies, I just need to reserve them at the library! I used to read a lot of adult fiction but got really tired of all the extra “junk” that would get thrown into the storyline. My son is an avid reader at 13, and I have a hard time finding books to keep him supplied. A couple recommendations: Matched by Ally Condie — similar genre to Uglies and The Hunger Games, but I liked it MUCH more than Uglies and I can’t compare to The Hunger Games until the Matched trilogy is finished :) which unfortunately won’t be for another year and a half – second book out this November and final book out next November :( Don’t get the audio book though — my SIL said the main character’s voice drove her nuts!

just thought I’d mention that! If someone told me this election could mean the difference between someone keeping or having their basic human rights taken away, I would think they were absolutely delusional.

Years ago, if someone told me my first time voting in an election would be so important, I would think they were lying.

A lot of heavy subject matter. you know the kind you neglect everything for when you are reading it. i didn’t know i would love a YA book so much!

Oh yes! Thanks so much Mallory. You must add The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews to your list! If i haven’t read the book, then I have it on my list. Then when I went to check out the second book for Rachel and Leah, I was informed that it wasn’t written yet.

“The Giver” by Lois Lowry is really good and I think you would I like “Matched” by Allie Condy. I have seen some of those. We are encouraging them to let us know that they did this by signing an online pledge to "Recycle Right" on and off campus. Joe Biden will be the 46th president of the United States. I almost didn’t read this book because of the name! I just left you with a few of my personal feelings and thoughts about the book.

great books! Log in as an administrator and view the Instagram Feed settings page for more details. Oh, please tell me you have read The Red Tent by Anita Diamant!!!!

Scott Westerfield has a new series, the two books so far are Leviathan and Behemoth. I was almost bawling at the beginning, but I have a bizarre obsession with WWII, Holocaust, etc. This one I’m in love with by I’d be curious to see your take. You could start with either Finnikan or Francesca if you want to ease into things.

Ooh, great list! The Mysterious Benedict Society 485 pages, 2. Also, my favorite books of all time are: I would recommend to you (if you haven’t read them) These is My Words by Nancy E. Turner, A Girl of the Limberlost by Gene Stratton-Porter, and if you haven’t read Tale of Two Cities (Dickens) it is certainly a must!

Hopefully I am not repeating book title ideas but one book I really liked was “Shattered Silence” by Melissa Moore. actually there is a 4th in the goose girl series called forest born.

I read this to my girls cabin at camp a couple of years ago. :) A few I’ve recently read and enjoyed are Stolen: A letter from my captor (Lucy Christopher), Wednsday Wars (Gary Schmidt), Prayers for Sale (can’t remember), and Matched (Allie Condie).

My sweet mom gave me that book after Brooks was born to read while nursing :), And here are a couple of my favorites: So the ones I haven’t read I am sure I will love. Excellent!!! Oh my gosh I’m glad someone else has read Sarah’s Key…I felt the same way you do about that book. My daughter and I really, really love Shannon Hale’s BOOK OF A THOUSAND DAYS … also a retelling and excellent. Thanks for a great post….. This series had some dark themes to it that I decided not to let my younger 10 year old read. September was, So excited to finally share our painted white bric, This error message is only visible to WordPress admins. Oh my goodness! It is an autobiography I read to my kids when I was teaching. I need help compiling my list for the upcoming summer months! This book is set during World War II in Germany so it will also deal with some dark themes. Amazon.

Orson Scott Card is one of my favorite authors & I’ve read a lot of his works but haven’t read any of that series yet.

It is a little bit long but it is a childrens book yet very detailed and advanced. Thanks for sharing your favorites! I love a good book….YA are some of my favorite also…You should give Cassandra Clare a try. Left behind series by Tim LaHaye. These books are books that I always recommend to my friends and family and several of them I have read more than once. A mother of five, who enjoys sharing her love of all things creative in hopes of inspiring other women and families. I am on book two and so far I really like them: A Great and Terrible Beauty (The Gemma Doyle Trilogy). I have to get through Specials first…but have it on the list for summer…but this time I will read it so the voice is my own and not the annoying one :) Extras sounds like I would enjoy it…thanks! Now my husband, who’ll normally read anything, was a harder sell. I just started Sarah’s Key last night.
