Teen Reading Challenge Update

I’ve read 38 juvenile & teen books since January 1st & I’m halfway to my goal for total pages read. We’ll see how close I get… These are the books I read this week.

The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman ~ Working as a library page for the New York Circulating Material Repository, a lending library of objects, is more exciting than Elizabeth thought. When items start disappearing from the Grimm Collection (which contains magical items from fairytales) she and her new friends must discover who is behind the thefts before it’s too late! I loved this! The library is soooo cool! A great read especially if you’ve ever worked or wanted to work in a library.

 

 

Little Women & Me by Lauren Baratz-Logsted ~ When Emily finds herself dropped in the middle of Little Women during a school english assignment, she decides to “fix” some of the things she doesn’t like. Complications follow. I enjoyed revisiting Little Women, but Emily was hard to like. Also, am I the only person in the entire universe who is ok with Laurie & Jo not ending up together? 
 

 
Saving Juliet by Suzanne Selfors ~ I usually hate reading about Juliet, but Mimi (who is playing Juliet in her family’s theatre production and wants to escape the family business to become a doctor) was such a fun character that I didn’t mind. I think I was supposed to care about Juliet though, which I really didn’t…

 
 

 Choke by Obert Skye ~ I had a hard time getting into this sequel to Pillage. I’m waiting for the final book to make my final judgement.
