    Reading Rants: Out of the Ordinary Teen Booklists!

    Reading Rants, a website featuring out of the ordinary booklists for teens, has been an online presence since 1998.  Written by Jennifer Hubert and designed by Andrew Mutch, Reading Rants has become a popular book review source for teenagers as well as their grown ups.  In May 2007, Andrew transformed the site into an interactive blog, where teens can respond to Jen's reviews as well as writing their own.  Reading Rants also exists as a book for adult professionals who work with teens!

    Monster Librarian
     
    While zombies are popular in adult fiction and popular culture zombies are found in books, graphic novels, movies, and video games.

    Bookwink's mission is to inspire kids to read. Through podcasting and web video, we hope to connect kids in Grades 3 through 8 with books that will make them excited about reading. The videos are approximately 3 minutes long and are updated monthly. Each video booktalk is about a different topic, and additional read-alikes can be found on the Bookwink website. You can look for books by subject, grade level, author or title. We are constantly updating the book lists with our newest favorite books.
