Our American book angel, Mary, has done it again. In July, she sent us two big boxes of 24 incredible books. She has managed to get her hands on a lot of the books that are very popular in the SRR and has been able to get many coveted hardcover books for the collection. Thanks so much Mary! We really appreciate all the amazing books you've been sending us! This should really cause stir in the SRR.
After watching The Lightning Thief movie I was hoping to read the series. I'm happy to say that Mary has sent us a whole collection of the books. If you enjoyed the movie as much as I do, you are sure to enjoy this set.
Looking for Alaska placed #4 on the 2005 Teens' Top Ten list so it will likely be a very good read. Of course Green has really established himself because he took #1 in 2009's list with Paper Towns. This is one author you may want to check out.
Shannon Hale has also established herself with The Goose Girl (#7 in 2004) and River Secrets (#7 in 2007). Perhaps she is another popular author worth looking at. I can't wait to hear a few reviews on these books.
Picoult, Dessen, Westerfeld, and Kinsella need no introduction. Their books already have a following at the school so these will all be snapped up the minute they hit the shelves. Enjoy!
