April 10-12 Book Club Report

It's hard to believe it's April already! There were 17 at our next-to-last book club meeting of the school year, ready to discuss Illuminae, by Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff. The consensus on this book was that it was such a roller coaster ride that you could hate it after 40 pages, love it after a couple hundred more, hate it again, and end up with it being practically your favorite book ever. Only one person disliked the book throughout; everyone enjoyed the unusual format in which the book was presented; and the final rating was an 8.25 out of 10.

Next month, for our last book of the year, we will read the oft-nominated and finally selected I'll Give You the Sun, by Jandy Nelson. For those who missed book club last night, copies await you at the circulation desk.

Since we didn't need to nominate, discuss, or vote on books last night, we spent our last half hour of club playing around with making Bookface photos. If you don't know what that is, go to our Facebook page to see a few that we made and also a bunch of quite elaborate ones contrived by the staff of a bookstore in France. We're posting ours for National Library Week, which starts April 9; if you would like to join in the hilarity, make one yourself and email it to burbank.teens@gmail.com!

The next meeting of the 10-12 Book Club is May 2.
