    I thought maybe we could start a thread to keep track of recommended books, and what we thought of them. If the thread really gets going I'll keep track of the recommended books in this top post so we have something to refer back to. I'm happy to add some of the books others have recently recommended onto this list too, if people would like. Hope you like the idea Kelly!

    Great Thread Stephanie!

    Both of those are also on my TBR list!

    I'm recommending anything by Diane Chamberlain - her books are so easy to read, and so hard to put down! Specifically, The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes & The Midwife's Confession. Cypress Point (The Shadow Wife) is also very good so far!

    Wither by Lauren De Stefano was good. My mom and I both enjoyed it.

    I started the series by Cate Tiernan that starts with Book of Shadows and am up to the fourth book. Very easy read, light, interesting. Another guilty pleasure series, for those who like that sort of thing.

    Great thread! I'm about to read 23 Minutes in Hell. It's a man's description of what he went through for the 23 minutes he was medically dead, before he came back to life.

    Wow, that sounds interesting. Let us know if you think it should be added to the "recommended" list. I think I may look it up regardless.

    Is that one classroom appropriate for seventh graders, Stephanie? Like for reading excerpts from here and there?

    For the most part I'd say definitely, but there are a couple you may find questionable. It's a pretty quick read, so I'd suggest you have a look at it. Especially because I think seventh grade is a really good time to get the message of the book across!!

    Definitely recommending Before I Go To Sleep! It's very difficult to put down - or to avoid reading a page when no one is looking at work...LOL.
