Tween Tuesday: Scholastic's Mother-Daughter Book Club PLUS Giveaway

Tween Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted here at GreenBeanTeenQueen to highlight and share great reads for tweens! Join fun, add your link below, and discover a new tween read!

Parents should never stop reading with their kids, which is why I'm so excited about Scholastic's brilliant plan for the summer to keep parents and kids reading together: The Mother-Daughter Book Club!

Start a tradition of reading with your daughter with a Mother-Daughter Book Club! Scholastic’s monthly selections will help you choose books that you and your daughter will enjoy!

The book club launched in May with 4 titles and there will be 2 new featured titles each month. June’s book selections are Whatever After: Fairest of All by Sarah Mlynowski and The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen.

Along with book selections, the Mother-Daughter Book Club website also features discussion questions and snack suggestions for your book club meetings and a monthly Skype sweepstakes where you can enter to win a Skype visit from one of the authors at your next book club meeting. June’s sweepstakes author is Sarah Mlynowski, author of Whatever After: Fairest of All.

So cool, right? I'm featuring this month's titles:

Whatever After: Fairest of All by Sarah Mlynowski: If you have a young tween reader who loves fairy tales, they will love Whatever After. It's the start to a new series about a brother and sister who discover a magic mirror in their basement. They are transported into Snow White's story, only stop Snow White from eating the apple and mess up her future. Can they put the story back together? There's tons of adventure and humor and the story is very fast paced. It also has an ending that leaves it open for more adventures to come. I read this one thinking of all the tweens who come into the library asking for fairy tales and princess stories. I'll be handing this one over for sure!

The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen: This one is another start to a series, and if you have a fantasy fan, they'll be up all night reading The False Prince! I would even suggest it to readers who liked The Hunger Games-it's fantasy, but it has a competition element that I think those readers will enjoy. There are lots of secrets and the plot is fast paced. This is going to be a go to booktalk for all my fantasy fans at the library!

  1. False Prince definitely looks good. It's so nice to have a fantasy series with names you can underSTAND, y'know ;-)

  2. Very interesting article that you’ve posted. Found the books quite informative for kids. Thanks for sharing.

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?
