Teen Read Week is this week! What is this Teen Read Week, you ask? Why, it’s simply a week in which libraries (and probably other people, too), persuade teens to read books! Yay reading!
I’m not a librarian just yet, so my ability to push books into the hands of teens is limited and I need your help! 🙂 If you parent a teen, know a teen, see a teen on the street, whatever, remind them all week that reading is fun! If they need some convincing, here are some books you can tell them to read, ones that I have read recently and enjoyed:
Liar, by Justine Larbalestier — The story of a liar who is totally going to tell the truth this time, honest.
The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks, by E. Lockhart — Secret societies, they’re all fun and games until you infiltrate one and then get in lots of trouble.
Life As We Knew It, by Susan Beth Pfeffer — Because being a teenager isn’t difficult enough without worrying about the moon looming ever closer.
The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins — Because being a teenager isn’t difficult enough without worrying about being forced to kill other teenagers.
Zoe’s Tale, by John Scalzi — Because being a teenager isn’t difficult enough without worrying about being stranded on a colony planet.
Looking for Alaska, An Abundance of Katherines, and Paper Towns by John Green — Because being a teenager is just difficult.
Little Brother, by Cory Doctorow — Awesome teenagers take on the government using even awesomer technology. Recommended in e-book form for your tech-savvy teen.
