Here are a few books that I suggest:
For video game aficionados:
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline...this is the most geektastic book I've ever read.
For fantasy fans:
Serpahina by Rachel Hartman...a mystery, an adventure, fantasy with dragons, and a bit of a romance. This book has eight starred reviews for good reason.
For fans of The Fault in Our Stars, especially irreverent boys:
Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews. Yes, there is a dying girl but this book is very different than FIOS and provides a humorous voice to a very serious subject. Boys at my school really like this book but beware of foul language.
For PBS viewers who enjoyed the Dust Bowl special:
The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan. This book must have informed the special. It is a very enlightening book about the conditions that led to and the tragedy of the Great American Dust Bowl. Timothy Egan is a fabulous writer.
Interested in LGBT or equal rights issues:
October Mourning-A Song for Matthew Shepard by Leslea Newman. A very touching, moving poetic book. It deserves wide distribution.
Enjoy a little magic in your life:
The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern...this book has savored well as the months pass since I've read it.
