KEEPER OF WONDER LIBRARIAN TOP FIVE BOOK LIST - Young Adult and Adult Recommendations July-November

As promised, I'm back with the second half of this list! Some fabulous picks here and the only order is the by the number of librarians who recommended them. Hunger Games winning at three different picks! Sorry for the lazy, but I'm not linking to Goodreads, not much time this week! But the list is worthy of a print out and a trip to your local Indie bookstore!

Please note that next week, Thanksgiving week, I'll be taking a blogging break, but when I return in December, I'm going to introduce you to a fabulous Texas librarian, Laura Blankenship!

  1. These are both genres I need to read more of; I hang out mostly with middle grades. :-)

  2. Oh my goodness, you just exploded my TBR list. At least I can scratch some of these off--having already read them.


Hey, do you ever wonder why they call it 'your two cents?'
