Tween Tuesday

Tween Tuesday is a weekly meme where I highlight great reads for tweens! Post a link to your Tween Tuesday post in the comments.


I need to catch up on my tween reads! I don't have any new reviews this week. But I do have a very cool tween website I want to share.

HarperCollins Children's Books has started a website featuring great adventure reads for tweens: Awesome Adventure. There are games on the site that go along with the books, weekly giveaways, and videos and podcasts. Some of the books featured on the site are A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner, Cosmic by Frank Cottrell Boyce and The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood.


If you have tween readers who love interactive sites and want to know more about the books they're reading, send them to the Awesome Adventures site.


Do your readers like having websites and games and author interviews for the books their reading? I keep seeing more publicity like this popping up and I wonder how much young readers are taking notice. I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Rating: 5/5 Stars Genre: Realistic Fiction Release Date: 2/26/2013 Add to Goodreads About the Book: Eleanor and Park are both misfits. When new girl Eleanor sits next to Park on the bus, they don't want anything to do with each other. But over the course of the school year, things change. It starts with comic books and becomes a friendship and a romance that the two will never forget. You never forget your first love. GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Have you ever had a book sit on your shelf that you've heard so much hype about? And you think that books sounds like it would be right up your alley, but you're in a reading slump and you're afraid to give it a try unless it fails? I knew Eleanor and Park sounded like my perfect book, but I was in such an after committee slump that I even though I knew this book would help, I just didn't want to be disappointed. I should have known better because Eleanor and Park was perfect and everything that I had hoped it wou

Post Downton Abbey Reading List

Downton Abbey is over (with a shocking and frustrating ending!) and now I'm suffering Downton Abbey withdrawal. I've got a reading list full of books that I hope will satisfy my post-Downton Abbey cravings and I thought I'd share what's in my pile and get suggestions for other after Downton reads. Here's what I hope to be reading this year (a mix of YA and adult titles):                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  A couple Julian Fellowes reads:                And a few re-reads:                    Edited to add: What's on your Post-Downton Abbey reading list?
