November Book Club Reports
Next month's book, Kiki Strike: Inside the Shadow City, by Kirsten Miller, is an actual mystery (not "a McGuffin," as Anarda called the so-called mystery in this one), also with a couple of sequels to pursue if people enjoy this first one.
Other books we considered:
The Mysterious Benedict Society, by Trenton Lee Stewart
Leviathan, by Scott Westerfeld
Among the Hidden, by Margaret Peterson Haddix
The Maze Runner, by James Dashner
Doll Bones, by Holly Black
Scarlet Stockings, by Charlotte Kandel
Gabby Lost and Found, by Angela Cervantes
Skulduggery Pleasant, by Derek Landy
Frozen Charlotte, by Alex Bell
The Sea of Trolls, by Nancy Farmer
Our next meeting will be on December 13.
The final rating of the book, by 22 members, was 8.6.
For December, our book is The Rithmatist, by Brandon Sanderson, proposed many times and finally selected, to George's joy. And the choice for January is The Naturals, by Jennifer Lynn Barnes.
