So You Want to Read Middle Grade: Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan


My husband, aka, Mr. GreenBeanSexyMan just started his first year of teaching this Fall. He's teaching middle school geography. I asked him what his students were reading in school and here's what he's noticed as the most popular:


Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling

-This series is standing the test of time and a new generation of readers is discovering it for the first time. It's one of the most popular choices among students.



The Heroes of Olympus by Rick Riordan 

-Students were excited about the most recent release in this series and it's been circulating in my classroom.


The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

-Not many of my students were as excited about this series-I'd say only about 15% of my students went to see Catching Fire over the weekend, but those that did see it were excited to talk about it and enjoy the series.

Other popular choices-

The students in my class also seem to be reading whatever is one our state book award list. I've also noticed a lot of my students reading Mike Lupica.

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?
