6+7 Book Club Report

The 6+7 Book Club meeting Tuesday night featured a lively and enthusiastic discussion of Steelheart, by Brandon Sanderson. The consensus was that everyone (except maybe one?) enjoyed it more than The Rithmatists, another book by Sanderson that we had previously read, and some liked it so much that they had already gone on to read the two other books in the trilogy. We finished up our discussion by going around the room and naming the super power that each of us would like to have, if we were Epics, with some interesting and creative results! The rating for the book was 8.65.

Next month's book has been on our list for a while, but some have already expressed disappointment with the size of the book (small/thin); we will have to see if Margaret Peterson Haddix can win them over in 150-some pages of Among the Hidden.

We had a pretty long list of things to consider when choosing our book for May, but after a couple of run-offs we finally settled on The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman, a particular favorite of Anarda's, and an award winner!

Other books we considered:

Two Summers, by Amy Friedman
The Unwanteds, by Lisa McMann
Leviathan, by Scott Westerfeld
Uglies, by Scott Westerfeld
A Long Walk to Water, by Linda Sue Park
The Wee Free Men, by Terry Pratchett

This club meets next on April 11.
