Proof-Positive that My 7th Grade Advisees Love to Read

My advisees love to read!

I found this out last week -- it all happened so quickly!

As our advisory period was ending, I fired a series of quick-response questions to my advisees. Last question was (totally unplanned, I swear):
"What books do you absolutely love that you would recommend?"
Turned out, almost everyone recommended a book series -- an unexpected bonus! Proof-positive in my opinion that my advisees are excited about reading ... :)

Here's the list, enthusiastically shouted out to me in rapid-fire fashion: 
Iron Fey series by Julie Kagawa 

The Lost Hero series by Rick Riordan 

Cahills vs. Vespers series by Gordon Korman, Jude Watson, Peter Lerangis, Linda Sue Park, and David Baldacci
The Tiger's Curse series by Colleen Houck 
Inheritance, the last book in the Eragon series by Christopher Paolini, due out November 8, 2011
Watch Christopher Paolini as he completes the final page of his series.

And the book?
Miss Peregine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Did I mention (this week) how much I love my job?
