Middle School Book Club: Romantic Reads
Last week I met with my Middle School Book Club to talk about this month's theme: Romantic Reads (cue high-pitched "OOOOooooooooOOOOOh").
We had a blast sharing the books we'd read, and found that they were an interesting mix of realistic and fantasy/supernatural. We read "girl meets boy" stories, "girl with 'powers' meets boy" stories, "boy best friend falls for girl best friend" stories, funny love stories, stories about angles falling for humans, and even a couple of science fiction love stories. (Check out the list below)
