October Read of the Month a No Go

Well, I could not do it, I could not finish my October 2012 Read of the Month, Dare Me, by Megan Abbott.  I think this one was just too much "girl power" for me.  I really enjoyed the writing style, I just could not relate to the story line or the characters.  I have already promised to let a couple female friends borrow the book so I can hear their input.  Before I could even do that, one of my library students (also a varsity cheerleader) grabbed the book and started reading.  I should be hearing a full review next week.

So, no after missing a Read of the Month for two straight months I really need to find something good.  It works out perfectly that I am at the Michigan Association of Media in Education conference in Lansing.  Tomorrow I will be able to hear a wonderful presentation about some of the top new novels aimed at young readers.  I should have no problem picking a great book out for the month of November.  No way am I going 0 - for my last 3 months.  There will be a November Read of the Month.  Hope everyone had a great Halloween, can you believe it is November?
