Because I'll probably be busy by the end of the month, I'm going to get April's nominations started early.

If you haven't done this before, our rules can be found here: http://www.goodreads.com/topic/show/2... If you have questions, please ask.

Our theme for April is War and Conflict! You may nominate 2 Young Adult books, one that is themed, and one that is not. Please label your books as themed and non-themed. Nominations will run for about a week.

Don't forget to check the group's bookshelf for books we've already read. http://www.goodreads.com/group/booksh...


Please include authors' names when nominating. Authors may not nominate their own books!

Thanks!

Phoebe (phoebecooper) Themed - War Horse by Michael Morpurgo
Non-themed - Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King

War Horse might lean more towards children's fiction than young adult, but it's a great read all the same. Not to mention there is now a film and a theatre production based on the book!

Renee (elenarenee) | 82 comments loved enders game but have discussed it in so many groups. I won't do a re read but I will dicuss


message 17: by Lauren (new)

Lauren (mrslaurenberry) Hi

This is the first time I'm joining in. I adore If I Stay so very excited to re read. Enders game doesn't sound like I'll enjoy it, but I'm going to
give it a go :-)

Renee (elenarenee) | 82 comments Lauren, I have heard many people say they didn't think Ender's Game was their cuppa. Later they were glad they read it. Give it a try. Its well written and different then you probably expect

My teenage son asked me to read Ender's Game because he really liked it, but I didn't want to. I read it anyway (because how can you say no when your kid is sharing books with you???) and I was pleasantly surprised! It was interesting and kept me reading the whole time.

Sara ♥ (saranicole) | 719 comments I quite liked Ender's Game! I thought it was pretty cool! I'm jealous that some kids get to read it in high school, when most of what I read was total crap!
