Book Grub Grads

It's that time of year again...we have to say good-bye to our Book Grub seniors! Although some will still be around through the summer, June is always our graduation party meeting. I made cupcakes (with help from Nat), and bought some other snacks. We heard from everyone about their plans for the summer and where they are headed in the fall. It's amazing to have such a diverse and talented group of library teens! We also talked over all the books the group read this year, and definitely heard some strong opinions. Here's what we read:
  • July 2009: Evolution, Me, and Other Freaks of Nature by Robin Brande
  • August 2009: Looking for Alibrandi by Melina Marchetta
  • September 2009: The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray by Chris Wooding
  • October 2009: Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston
  • November 2009: Impossible by Nancy Werlin
  • December 2009: Paper Towns by John Green
  • January 2010: Unwind by Neal Shusterman
  • February 2010: The Looking Glass Wars by Frank Beddor
  • March 2010: What I Saw and How I Lied by Judy Blundel
  • April 2010: Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr
  • May 2010: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
This was a really wide range of books, so I'm proud of us for not getting stuck in a reading rut this year! A lot of people said the one that stuck with them the most was Unwind, and I definitely agree with that. I liked looking back over the year and hearing everyone's overall opinions. It helps make the group better in the future (not that it isn't already awesome, of course). Anyway, congratulations and best of luck to our graduates!!!
