With the return of Glee this week (yay!) why not promote some great Glee read-alikes? (This is not a comprehensive list and I'd love to hear more suggestions! I've linked to my reviews of titles I've read and reviewed on this blog.)
-No More Dead Dogs by Gordon Korman-This is my go-to book for Glee read-alikes. Somehow the book just reminds me of the show-a jock who ends up in the theater department, the drama queen, and a teacher who wants to make a difference. Such a hilarious read-and I agree, no more dead dogs!!
-My Most Excellent Year: A Novel of Love, Mary Poppins, and Fenway Park by Steve Kluger-This book really does have everything, and there are some great Glee-ish moments with the characters. I can see Glee fans loving this book.
-Dramarama by E. Lockhart-Give this one to the hardcore theater lovers who live and breathe the theater. Chances are they'll relate to the theater camp experience.
-Eyes Like Stars by Lisa Mantchev-Not the most Glee-like book on the list, but readers who enjoy high theater will love this fantasy set behind the scenes.
-Drama! Series by Paul Ruditis-I have yet to read this series, but from the synopsis, it sounds perfect for Glee fans. Set in a superposh high school's drama club, there's drama, gossip, and romance, and more drama.
And of course, don't forget that Glee tie in novels will be heading your way soon!
Any other novels you'd suggest for a Glee reading list?
Suggested by readers: Castration Celebration by Jake Wizner-A satire of the high school musical-this one's for older YA. I have yet to read it, but the reviews have said it's very funny, so I'm sure Glee fans would enjoy.
Suite Scarlett by Maureen Johnson-This I have read, so I've linked to my review. I don't know why I didn't think of it! It's a fun read with theater and romance.
Carter Finally Gets It by Brent Crawford-The audiobook is hilarious and the humor is exactly what Glee fans are looking for.
