Ever wanted to start a teen book club at your library? Check out what several of us at The Hub have to say about ours! We of course have a lot of readers, so why not.
The reviewer of each book decides which categories it belongs in - but we're only human, mistakes happen. If you see a book that you think is in the wrong place, tell us! Reader Reviews.
Book clubs everywhere are sharing the newest and best YA books with their members. These are the top five picks you need in your TBR pile if you enjoy reading this coveted genre. In the magical world of Orleans, the Belles are a thing of beauty and bring life to all the other sad and gray people around them.
What is this program and how does it work? Who is it for? Each month, the teens collectively choose one book to read together. The book must be YA and one that no member has read before.
Do you have a book club? Are you planning to start a book club in ? Are you a little bit stressed about what books you're going to pick?
Sometimes nobody showed up. Take time to get to know your teens and give control to the ones that are responsible enough to move the book club forward in a positive manner. It worked out great.
Sign up for our newsletters! Combining mythology, fate and and both world wars, Julie Berry spins a heartbreaking and formidable tale of love. Best friends Delia and Josie love hosting their campy creature feature show, but with the end of senior year, they have to face their futures. Instead of returning home, she headed to France.
Begin by publicising it; talk to teens in your library and local schools, use social media and produce attractive flyers too. Once the club gets going then give the kids control and listen to them, give them snacks. Make it fun and enjoy it yourself too!
I have been a part of one or more book clubs for over 20 years, and I have learned a few things about what makes a book club successful and how to get your book club talking. I have two cardinal rules in selecting the best book club books: choose mostly books available in paperback and pick books that will foster great discussion. While you occasionally want to read the hot new bestseller with your book club, the truth is that a lot people just cannot afford to buy new hardbacks all the time.
