What should you read next?

Tips on choosing a good book:

  • Find an author you enjoy;
  • Find an exciting series and read them all!
  • Branch out and read a different genre (mystery, adventure, romance, nonfiction, etc.) - it may be cooler than you think;
  • Talk to friends!  What stories have they fallen in love with?
  • Follow a favorite topic - What T.V. shows, hobbies, or worldly events interest you?
  • Obsessed with a popular movie or T.V. series? Often times those stories were books first!
  • Ask Mrs. Hogg, your Librarian!  What is she reading now?
