For this month’s Book Club, we talked about books we’re looking forward to reading over the upcoming winter break.
Anny talked about reading The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, which is a prequel to The Shadow of the Wind, the book she discussed during our last meeting. Anny also mentioned wanting to finish reading the Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them screenplay, which led into a discussion on starting a Harry Potter themed club or book club.
Jackson discussed wanting to reread the Percy Jackson books over break as well as working his way up to reading Game of Thrones. Josh talked about finishing Bill Nye’s Undeniable and rereading Neil Gaiman’s graphic novel Sandman. This led to a discussion on how awesome Neil Gaiman is (he really is!)
Luca talked about reading The 13 and 1/2 Lives of Captain Bluebear, which he described as one of the strangest books he’s read. This got the group talking about the strangest books Luca’s read and how it would make for an interesting display (it so would!)
And speaking of strange books, Joe discussed reading The Wolf of the North, which gives away its ending at the beginning and then just sort of…ends. Joe’s anxiously awaiting the sequel.
Ms. Melinson talked about some new books we received, including a topsy-turvy book from Lauren Oliver and a controversial book from Jodi Picoult.
