It's already time for us to figure out what books we'll be reading next year for book club! For the past few years, I've had fun sharing with you all our list of candidates and get your input!
So, here's the very eclectic list we've come up with, complete with some verse books, some plays and some graphic novels! It will be interesting to see if they get voted in.
Have you read any of these books? Which ones would you strongly suggest we push through? Which ones would you caution us against? Let us know your experience with any of them!
