Book Club Book List

I host a book club for girls ages 10-12. These are the books my girls read this year. 

January: Sky Jumpers by Peggy Eddleman
The girls loved this book. Getting to meet the author was a bonus!!


February: Mark of a Thief by Jennifer A. Nielsen
We absolutely love this author. Her books are an automatic buy for us. 
We went to the book Launch at the Provo City Library but didn't get any pictures:( But we did get ice-cream after. 

March: Rump by Liesl shurtliff
This is such a fun book. WE went to her book signing of her new book Jack and My daughter actually won the book!! Now we are waiting for her new book REd: the true story of red riding hood

April: Flora and Ulysses by Kate Dicamillo
This book received mixed reviews from the book club girls. half really liked it and the other half didn't like it. 

May: Ella Enchanted by gail carson lavine
this is the second book we have read by Gail Carson Lavine. We have read fairest and enjoyed it so much we decided to read Ella enchanted. It is completely different than the movie. We met her a couple of years ago when she came to the Provo city library. we didn't get a picture of that event. It was to busy they so didn't allow them. 

June: Breathing Room by Marsha Hayles
My daughter loves this book. She has read it five times so we decided to read it with the book club. Every girl gave it five stars. simply amazing. 

July: Mr Lemoncello's library 
Another fun book. The activity was a blast. You can get it on the website 

august: The Unwanteds by LIsa Mcmann
THe girls enjoyed this book but what I loved was that they shared it with their moms. I had many of the moms call to see if I had the second book to borrow. 

September: Hook's REvenge
This book is hilarious. I highly recommend it to read to your kids or even read for yourself. the girls loved meeting the author. We actually met her last year at a different book launch and liked her so we bought her book and we are glad that we did. great book!!!

October: Doll bones by Holly Black
creepy good. it wasn't as scary as i thought it was going to be. we only had a few girls not finish because they found it to scary. read with the lights on:)

November: Rules by Cynthia Lord
lots of life lessons in this book. we didn't like how it ended. we all felt it fell a little short and we wanted more. many of the girls didn't like the main character. They thought she was a little selfish. Which led to a great discussion on how we should treat others. 

December: no book. the girls prepare for the battle of the books in january where we test on all the books we read this year.
