Number The Stars anyone???
It’s so annoying the way people expect books they have to read in class to be bad. I mean, my English teacher actually said to us that at least the book was short and we should be glad about that. Come on, what about us literarians?! (Sorry, I don’t think that’s a word)
i get this! I mean sometimes school does make you read crappy books but i've read some pretty awesome ones there too

yes i agree! theres a stigma that all school books are bad. NoT tRuE. there are plenty of great books that are cURReNt and amazing and why can't they read it FirSt before judging

Oh gosh I know this....

What is it?
01/20/2020 - 4:02pm
(sounds like something I would read tho) ;)
01/20/2020 - 4:03pm
Is it Rick Riordan?
01/20/2020 - 5:33pm
is that leo or jason from Percy Jackson?
01/20/2020 - 9:54pm
i know it was magnus chase, form the magnus chase series, but leo, or somebody form Percy Jackson probably said it too. both books/characters are RR's so it would make sense.
01/21/2020 - 4:12pm
oooOOOOoo got it, good one :)

Ok does anyone else agree that Tris’ romance with Tobias in the Divergent series is totally out of character and makes the series not as great as it could be???
Yes! I totally agree! I feel like it really sent us on a plot that isn't as amazing as I think this universe had the potential for.
01/21/2020 - 1:22pm
Thank you! I'm glad its not just me!
01/21/2020 - 6:09pm
I’m not totally apposed to Tris and Tobias being together, but I guess I can see where you’re coming from. I do think that the books waste a lot of time describing their relationship in an unnecessary way, especially their fights and disagreements.

the book only came yesterday...


life is so unfair.

what book?
01/15/2020 - 6:21pm
the fifth home for peculiar children???
01/16/2020 - 12:09am
01/20/2020 - 4:02pm
oh, i haven't read past the first one, are they good??
01/21/2020 - 4:13pm
uhhhhhhh... the first is by far the best, they kinda go downhill after the first one. but I would still recommend it.
01/21/2020 - 7:27pm
I would HIGHLY recommend The Girl Who Drank The Moon by Kelly Barnhill. It's a magical, beautiful, heavy, thoughtful tale of wonderful characters. Also funny story about how I got into it... my best friend accidentally left it in my car after she came over and I started reading it and was hooked... I had to get my own copy after I returned it to her ;)
I LOVE that book!!! It's so awesome!
01/14/2020 - 11:37pm
Love when you read books left by your friend in the car. 'Out Of My Mind' was one of the best books i've read, and it was a car find :)
I will try and check it out :)
01/15/2020 - 9:46pm
Oh, that is a really good book!!!

01/14/2020 - 8:11pm

The part right before fox girl eats the berries and dies.

01/14/2020 - 1:03pm

01/14/2020 - 3:41pm
me too! I'm reading it in my literary class!
01/14/2020 - 7:25pm
anybody else read the Eragon books??? (random fact for anybody reading this, the author wrote the first book when he was fourteen. i believe he published it when he was sixteen. it's now a series of books you can find in most libraries. i highly recommend reading it, if you like dragons, battles, adventures, swordsmanship, and all that shabang, it's a really good read.)
hahahahahaha,( again), you should ask my friend fire83. I think I have an unhealthy amount of book grudges. :)
01/13/2020 - 7:38pm
I woke up dead at the mall by Judy Sheehan is a great book. Not super for young audiences but for 13 ish up it’s a good read
"It takes ten times as long to put yourself back together as it does to fall apart." anybody know this one???
ooh, ooh MOCKINGJAY!!!

I started the first book and really wanted to finish it but then just sort of trailed off and stopped... maybe I should try again, would you recommend?
01/03/2020 - 4:34pm
Yes I have!!!
01/03/2020 - 4:58pm
yah!!! I LOVE those books!!!!!!!!!!! they are my favorites!!!!! who's your favorite character? mine's Alex.
01/03/2020 - 10:51pm
Hearthstone is my favorite! And yes I definitely recommend reading at least the first book in your free time! I love how the author created such diverse characters. It’s actually made me understand about different people and really respect them so much more
01/05/2020 - 11:26am
yeah! I really love that about all of his books, he makes each individual character really feel alive, and their personalities run far deeper than the surface, creating a more whole person, and a better reading experience.
01/06/2020 - 9:13am
And magnus is just so amazing!! there needs to be a book where magnus goes to camp half blood and sees everyone. Imagine magnus hugging nico!
01/08/2020 - 11:13pm
Ok so I don’t really know Magnus but I can totally picture this scene. Awwwww
01/11/2020 - 5:05pm
i wonder what hearthstone would think of grover???? also, i just can't stop wishing the series kept going, the ending was sweet. . . .but i want more butt-kicking-mythology-based-amazing-character-filled-adventures. you know??
01/16/2020 - 12:21am

Yeah the maze runner :)
01/03/2020 - 2:40pm
I just finished reading Divergent by Veronica Roth. It was really great!
oh yeah, I loved that series!
01/02/2020 - 8:22pm
ya know I actually don't think I ever finished that series. I got to the second to last book and then I guess I never finished it, but I did love what I did read lol. Maybe I'll go back and finish it (finally)

Just finished reading this graphic novel Death, by Neil Gaiman. Officially my new favorite book!
Are there any other Neil Gaiman fans here?
Hello everyone! Welcome to 2020! I hope you all enjoyed The 57 Bus. Please share your thoughts about it here in the book club!

Our next book is Saint Anything by Sarah Dessen. This is a great book about parental pressure, misconceptions and finding the people who matter in life. Sydney is struggling after her brother, the golden child is jailed. Sydney struggles to find her place in her world until she meets the Chathams who make her feel seen for the first time.
For me, it was a feel good read about a imaginary world that is nice to hear about in the cold snowless winter we have going on.

Omigosh The Poet X must be read by everyone ever (especially poets)
12/28/2019 - 6:32pm
