#ReadersAreLeaders (The 5)

What is your summer read? I have so many books on my summer reading list! One of my very favorite things to do is to relax and read a great book. This summer, I want to read at least 10 books! I am looking for a mix of middle school novels and professional books. I am thinking of trying these middle school novels out this summer:

  • Fan Girl by Rainbow Rowell
  • A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness
  • Everything, Everything by Nicola Yoon
  • A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron
  • Deenie by Judy Blume

If you can read 5 books this summer and add your review to this flipgrid, you will win a $5.00 McDonald's Gift Card to start the year! #ReadersAreLeaders
