I’m not necessarily a fan of mystery series, but Spencer Quinn’s Chet and Bernie Mystery series is one of my favorites. Though written for adults, it would be an excellent addition to high school libraries.The first book of the series, Dog on It, received starred reviews from Library Journal, Booklist, and Publisher’s Weekly, and the rest of the books have all been highly reviewed. Funny, suspenseful, and full of heart, this series is not just for dog lovers. Blogger: Tracey

Create an original poem using a page from a book.  This is such a creative idea... and I love how blocking out the rest of the text makes it look as unique as a fingerprint... like it belongs only to that child.  #poetry

I think we’ve all noticed the YA trend with beautiful girls on the cover, usually in elaborate gowns with long flowing hair. The middle/high school boys I know would never walk around with books with those covers. The tragic thing is that these books are told from alternating perspectives...both female and male characters. But a boy reader would never guess that by the covers.  So I’ve found great books that also have covers that boys won’t have to hide. Blogger: Lindsey
