Blogging 'Bout Books

Wednesday, December 03, 2008

Some great new titles for 7th and 8th graders are now on the shelves. There is romance, mystery, science fiction, manga, graphic novels, fantasy and some great new series.
One of the most popular series right now are the Alex Rider Adventure novels by Anthony Horowitz. These include:
Storm Breaker
Point Blank
Skeleton Key
Eagle Strike
Ark Angel
Snakehead (the most recent book)
These books are packed full of adventure, mystery and suspense. It is hard to keep them on the shelves.

Author Scott Westerfields, Uglies series is as popular as last year. Imagine being able to have plastic surgery when you turn 16 that makes everyone beautiful. That is what happens to teens in this science fiction thriller series.
Also in this series:

The hottest books at TMS right now are the Stephanie Meyer Twilight series. These books are more popular than ever due to the recent movie from the first book, Twilight. Vampire love, is all the rage in this series that also includes:
New Moon
Breaking Dawn (the most recent book)

My favorite series is Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer. Imagine a meteor striking the moon. This pushes the moon very close to the earth. Life for everyone on earth changes. The book describes how one teen and her family, who live in Reading, Pennsylvania deal with the awful changes that take place. It is a great, page turner you will not be able to put down. The sequel, The Dead and the Gone, is equally gripping and describes how life changes for a teens family in New York City after the same cosmic accident. These are two really great reads.

There are plenty of books for every reader in our great library.
