This week’s question is:
Worst cover? What is the worst cover of a book you’ve read and loved?
So I went back through my read list on goodreads, and I really can’t find one…I would say Owen Meany because of the Armadillo, but once you read the book you realize it should be one there. So I really don’t have an answer lol.

This week’s book is:
She was broken. And totally alone.”
The last book in the Maximum Ride series. I’m kind of glad it’s over. It’s just kinda went downhill since book 3. But, nevertheless, I will finish this long adventure I’ve been on with these freakish bird-human-mutant-children!

This week’s question is:
I definitely have a few I feel should be included:
- Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver. It holds such a powerful message and the writing is so beautiful!
- Thirteen Reason Why by Jay Asher. Another book with an incredibly powerful message that every teenager should know/learn.
- The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I think everyone should read this book by default. It’s a powerful dystopian with a great message.
- Delirium by Lauren Oliver. Yes I’m an Oliver fangeek but this is a really good book, and could raise so many amazing discussion question.
- Any of Ellen Hopkins’ books. The woman is a genius and all of her books hold incredible messages and discussion topics. You could have an entire unit of drugs, suicide, incest, etc.
Teachers are constantly complaining that students are reading. And I can understand that because honestly, I never read the books we were assigned in school either. I would skim them and sparknote them.
