We had a great turnout last night at Olympia for our third YA² meeting. Thank you to everyone who participated and contributed to the discussion of Croak. It’s great to hear so many people enjoyed this fun and creepy book and that you’re interested in pursuing the rest of the trilogy (Scorch and Rogue). Here are some other books and movies mentioned during the discussion:

We had a request to read historical fiction for the January book club, and Under a Painted Sky by Stacey Lee won by a landslide! We’ll be meeting at Houlihan’s (Brentwood) on January 23rd, 7 p.m. Please register in advance so I know how many seats to reserve.

It was also requested last night that I post the nominees for each voting round for those who are interested in reading the other choices, so here are the nominees we had for the past three book clubs (I’ve asterisked the winners):

Science Fiction


Historical Fiction

If you have friends who may be interested in the YA² Book Club, please feel free to forward this email or have them email me at lbeckman@bplmo.org. Also, if you have any suggestions for a theme/genre/plot or character aspect for future book clubs, please let me know!
