One of the best parts about book blogging is the exposure to books and authors you might never have heard of before. Pimp the book you think needs more recognition on this day. Get creative! Maybe share snippets from other bloggers who have reviewed it or make some fun art to get your message across.But as my regular readers probably know, I am always loath to label any book as a "must read" for everyone because I don't think there's a universally beloved book out there (and I don't want anyone hating my favorite books). So, instead I'm going to invite you to find some new favorites with me while reading through a list of the "best" chapter books!
It's the Top 100 Chapter Books Read-Along that I'm hosting at The Estella Society (a new playground for book bloggers) -- and we're actually starting with my favorite chapter book so I guess in a way I'm breaking my own rules and telling you to read it.
We'll be discussing The Wizard of Oz starting this weekend (Sept. 15) so you still have time to download a copy and read along! I'm very excited to create some new fans of this 112 year old masterpiece.
Our next few titles are The Strange Case of Origami Yoda, The Graveyard Book, The Dark is Rising, The Secret Garden, Tuck Everlasting, Journey to the River Sea, Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIMH and The Saturdays. So if any of these are books you've thought of trying, books you missed out on as a child or books you've read dozens of times and want to talk about, join us on the 15th and 30th/31st of each month for a fun discussion! There's no commitment to read all 100 books -- just join in when you can/when you want to.
What's your favorite chapter book? And have I convinced you to come read some books with me?
