Top books or authors people have recommended to me over and over and over......
Anything by John Green. After The Fault In Our Stars came out everyone was recommending him to me. The thing is - I had read most of his books already before the "general population" found him.
Sarah Dessen. The girls I teach have told me over and over and over and over that I MUST read one of her books. I plan on it, but I just haven't yet.
The rest of the The Giver series. I have taught The Giver for the last two years and love it. But I haven't read the rest of the books in the series - Messenger, Gathering Blue and Son - I know they aren't a true series, more companion books. Many many students and other teachers tell me I MUST read them. I did try reading Gathering Blue a long while back but couldn't get into it. I do plan to day to read them, but I just don't know when. (Oh and about the movie - don't get me started!)
The Heroes of Olympus series. Tons of my 5th and 6th graders (as well as my own daughter) tells me I MUST read them. I'm getting there.
The Found series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. This one comes from my students as well. Many of them have read the entire series, so they tell me I have to read it! The thing is, I read the first one and it didn't excite me, so I don't plan on reading the rest. BUT I'm so glad they enjoy them!
What about you?? What books do people recommend to you over and over?
