Books and Reading

School Library Journal rounded up a list of under the radar YA novels to “get away” with this week.

The Washington Post reports what we all know: kids need time to read at school. Nancie Atwell explains why: “All that quiet time reading stories chosen for me by an adult who loved me changed me forever. Now I had all these narratives inside me, all these people, and all this knowledge, not to mention a passion for books and the ability to read fast and with feeling.”

Gearing up for Halloween? Epic Reads has a list of 18 scary stories and Penguin Teen has some books that prove you should be scared of the dark.  If zombies are more your thing, check out this post at Lit Reactor.

Amanda at Teen Librarian Toolbox rounds up the forthcoming LGBTQ titles for the rest of 2015.

The B&N Teen blog shares a list of YA romances between characters on opposite sides of the tracks.
