It's Percy time! Not only are we having our discussion of the Percy Jackson series on Wednesday (see calendar to sign up!), but news about the next Percy Jackson movie was recently announced. That's right; The Sea of Monsters will soon be a movie. Check out the cast! The actress who played Glimmer in the new Hunger Games movie has signed on to play Clarisse.
The Hunger Games is officially the hottest book in the world right now. We get asked several times a day, every day, all day, if we have copies of the book. "Why, yes, yes, we do have 10 copies of the book. No. No, they are not here, sadly. They are all checked out! There are 820 holds on the book system wide. Would you like to wait for the book?" That's how it goes at the desk. BUT have no fear! Ms. Sarah has a read-alike list for you!
These are videos of the same booktalks I did at Hickory Creek Middle School December 19th, 2011, and some of the ones I did at Summit Hill Middle School on December 13th, 2011. Looking for any of these books? Check on display in the Young Adult section of the library or alphabetical by the author's last name. Can't find it? Ask a librarian; that's what we're here for.
