The first meeting of the SPL Teen Book Club was last week - woohoo! Thanks to everyone who came to talk about their favorite books and helped break in the club like a shiny new shoe. If you wanted to avoid the first meeting and join the club at a fashionably-late second meeting, you can still discuss your favorite books here!
Some of your favs from the meeting included the Maximum Ride series, The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan, Withering Tights by Louise Rennison, Tangled by Carolyn Mackler, See You At Harry's by Jo Knowles, Willow by Julia Hoban and the Harry Potter series (OF. COURSE.). Reasons for liking these books included enjoying them for the action, for adventure, romance and humor; for the issues in some books and for how other books made you think. Topic- and genre-wise, it's a pretty diverse list, which only makes for a more interesting meeting.
Teen librarian/bound-paper-aficionado Veronica McKay also read some juicy bits from some of her own newer favs, including Long Lankin by Lindsey Barraclough.
So how about you, anonymous internet reader-person? What are some of your favorite books, and why do you like them? Or is there a book you just LOVE, but didn't want to be the only one talking at the meeting (because you can tell us about it here - and it's anonymous...)? YA books, non-YA books, or just a favorite genre - let us know!
