A Newbie to Teen Tuesday

Hi everyone -
This is my first time posting to Teen Tuesday...thanks for inviting me to join! I've been reading a lot lately, but here are a few I've finished recently...

Being Nikki by Meg Cabot - AWESOME! This is the sequel to Airhead - if you haven't read the series, I highly recommend it. I mean, it's Meg Cabot!

Wings (The Mysterious Mr. Spines) by Jason Lethcoe - fantasy and really good! If you like fantasy, good vs. evil, ties to mythology - I recommend this and can't wait for the next one in the series.

In my "To Read" pile -

The Compound by S.A. Bodeen - a few of my students read it and really liked it.

My Most Excellent Year (A Novel of Love, Mary Poppins, & Fenway Park) by Steve Kluger - saw this on someone else's blog and as a die-hard Red Sox fan, I have to read it. I also want to see if it's something my students would like.

Along for the Ride by Sarah Dessen

Have any of you read any of those? Please log on and check out my blog - the contributors are my 7th grade students and myself and we are constantly reading and blogging about YA literature!

Thanks for posting :)

Being Nikki was so great! I loved it, but I hate how Meg Cabot always leaves us with cliffhanger endings! Grrr!

And I would definitely recommend for you to read Along for the Ride next... that book is absolutely fantastic and you will not regret it =D

PS I will be checking out the blog asap!

Thanks Chelsie - I've moved Along for the Ride to the top of my pile! I'll be having a contest on my blog next week where you can win an autographed copy of the book!
