Book Discussion books

Here are some books we may be reading:

6th Grade
The Wizard Heir by Cinda Williams Chima
Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix
The Gift of the Unmage by Alma Alexander

Update: This group met 2/13 and, like the other grades, decided to meet every two weeks!!! I am going to be pretty busy! We may not read Found because some of the group have already read it. We will read the other two as well as Nation and possibly The Mysterious Benedict Society.

7th Grade
Heroes of the Valley by Jonathan Stroud
The London Eye Mystery by Siobhan Dowd
Madapple by Christina Meldrum
Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Allison Goodman

UPDATE: This group met 2/12 and will also meet every two weeks. Book choices are tough because we've got 1/2 fantasy readers and 1/2 realistic fiction. They all loved Graceling though! I think their books will be Epic, Rash, Nation, and the Big Splash. They still want Heroes and Eon but they want to wait until after Spring Break.

8th Grade
Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd
Waiting for Normal by Leslie Connor
Nation by Terry Pratchett
If I Stay by Gayle Forman

UPDATE: The book group chose to meet every two weeks. We decided to mostly go for books that have been out for a while because many of them will buy their own books. So far that means: Secret Life of Bees, The Outsiders, Separate Peace, as well as some from our library such as Nation and Waiting on Normal.

I own about 1/2 of these books. I can't wait until our meetings next week for the student's final decisions.
