  5. The Giver is awesome. Very sad, but what could you expect considering its subject matter? I used it with a class of teenagers who were learning English as a Second Language once.

  7. Fallen seems to be one of those series that people either love or hate, but I absolutely love it. I hope you enjoy it, too! :D

  11. I am positively in love with Lois Lowry - he's one of my favorite authors of all time. In fact, the name of our blog GatheringBooks was actually inspired by his "Gathering Blue" - you should check out that title as well - comes after The Giver, if I recall correctly. Have fun with it!

    Here's our IMM over at GatheringBooks:
