One of the things I love about Skyward so far is how relatable Spensa is! She really rings true as a teenage character. What do you think – do you relate to her?
Last month I read popular author Victoria Schwab’s debut novel, The Near Witch. With beautiful prose and a haunting atmosphere, it reads like a dark fairytale! Here’s what I thought of it — and who I’d recommend it for. 🙂
Our February 2020 book club pick is Skyward by Brandon Sanderson! This YA sci-fi novel has been popular lately, so let’s dive into this adventure together. 🙂
Now that the first month of our Reading is Magic Book Club is a wrap, let’s discuss what we thought of The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman!
Books clubs give us spaces to share our ideas about books with other readers. The challenge? Getting the conversation started! That’s why I’m sharing FIVE simple conversation starters specifically for fantasy book clubs. 🙂
Sometimes there’s nothing like a good escape. And that’s exactly what fantasy literature does best — it draws us out of our everyday worlds into lands filled with magic. And sometimes dragons. If you’re just getting started with YA fantasy, here are a few books to get you started!
About our book club
To help share the love of middle grade and YA fantasy and science fiction books, we read one book per month here at Reading is Magic. It’s a way to discuss some great young adult reads — and share ways to teach these novels in the classroom!
You can join us in discussing books on our Goodreads. Or, sign up for our reading community below to receive monthly goodies like custom bookmarks, downloadable lesson plans, and book club conversation starters.
