Are you looking for a sharp, witty read for your high school classroom library? Carry On by Rainbow Rowell is a hilarious romp that is equal parts romance, adventure, and mystery.
I don’t know about you, but fall has always meant Halloween season to me--not back-to-school. While other teachers are out shopping for school supplies, I’m literally hiding skeletons in my closet before my boyfriend can reprimand me for bringing more decorations in the house. So October for me means pumpkin spice everything, draping cobwebs all over the house, and reading as much horror fiction as I can. For this October, I’m presenting to you Katie Alendar’s The Dead Girls of Hysteria Hall. It’s the perfect horror novel for high schoolers!
I devoured Allegedly by Tiffany D. Jackson during my time at the Teachers Pay Teachers conference in Austin. I read bit by bit in the hotel room, but absolutely demolished it on my plane rides home. In this post, I hope to help you match…
Do you (or your students) enjoy action? Mystery? Diverse literature? Sassy female characters? ZOMBIES?! Yeah, I thought so. Dread Nation by Justina Ireland offers all of this with a side of phenomenal writing; your high school classroom library is incomplete without it!
Need an exciting, but challenging, modern dystopian novel for your students? Then add Scythe to your high school classroom library immediately!
I don’t care who you are, we all love a little bit of romance. But I cannot hand a book about a relationship to a student without making sure there’s a twist. See, while I have a healthy respect for love, I hate to see it idealized. Enter Dreamland by Sarah Dessen.
I originally read Broken Things while on vacation and, guys, I devoured it! I mean, I almost stayed in my hotel instead of exploring the Vegas strip because I just didn’t want to put it down!
