What to Read While Waiting for the Veronica Mars Movie


Ever since the Veronica Mars movie was announced, I've been obsessively checking the Kickstarter page, watching Logan and Veronica clips on YouTube, and reading every piece of news about who is going to be in the film and what the plot my be I can get my hands on. Yep, I love Veronica Mars and I'm thrilled she'll be making a comeback. Obsessed like me? Or new to Veronica Mars and need to get in a YA mystery mood? Here's what you can read while waiting for the Veronica Mars movie:


-Before he was creating TV show detectives, Rob Thomas was writing YA novels. The book just got a new cover and re-released this month.






-High school murder mystery and total fluffy fun



-Veronica Mars if she was born in 1942



-If Veronica Mars was a bit more chick lit and went to a school for spies



-Veronica Mars meets Harry Potter







And if you just can't get enough of Veronica:



Any other suggestions for Veronica Mars fans?

  2. Great list, Sarah! May I also suggest "Lulu Dark Can See Through Walls" by Bennett Madison? A teen detective who is a lot of fun! I wish he would write more than the two in the series. The Spellman Files is also a fantastic series for teens interested in trying out an adult series.

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book!

Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
