Perfect for teens who love to read and those who need a companion for school assignments or summer reading programs, Read, Remember, Recommend for Teens offers more than 2400 award-winning and notable reading suggestions in many genres, cross-referenced to help parents and teens chose the right books for them. This unique journal sold out its first print run, attracting readers with recommended lists for fiction, manga, historical fiction, romance, westerns, crime novels, and poetry, as well as nonfiction sections focusing on biography/ autobiography. College-bound readers will find a section to help guide their reading selections. The journal also provides room to record books read, jot down thoughts and ideas, and keep track of recommendations, books to read next, and works by favorite authors.

This is an excellent resource to have for book bloggers!  This book had all the book awards that are out there with it broke down in subsections, links to other book bloggers that have some awesome sites, sections for you to write down books for your wish list and that you loan out, and indexed thoroughly.  I was very impressed with the way this book is set up. They need one of these books for every genre, and if they did, I would own all of them! I recommend this to all serious readers and book bloggers out there!


Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading!
The theme of the Read, Remember, Recommend for Teens Traveling to Teens Tour is “Great Summer Reading”. For each of my guest posts on the tour, the blog host and I will both recommend a book we feel would be worthy of some sunny weather, summer reading.

“It was a dark and stormy night…”.  Has there ever been a better first sentence for urging a reader to cozy down and get ready for a great read?  So starts the story of Meg Murry, her special brother Charles Wallace, and three grandmotherly immortals who all embark on an adventure to save Meg’s father.  Mr. Murry was inadvertently trapped on Camazotz, a planet in another solar system after attempted to tesseract” – that is, travel through time via a shortcut or wrinkle in time.  What ensues is the coming-of-age story of Meg, an insecure, awkward teenager who is in need a her own specialness while she finds love in a friend, admiration for her father and a deeper understanding of her gifted brother.
Published for the first time in 1962, A Wrinkle in Time was the start of a great period in children’s and young adult literature and has become a true classic; one that your parents will love to see you read and your physics teacher might give you extra credit for trying.

As with most of the Traveling to Teens “Great Summer Reads” picks, A Wrinkle in Time continues with more in the series. 
A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters and An Acceptable Time complete the story of the Meg Murry and her immortal friends.
A Wrinkle in Time is mentioned on the following lists in the Read, Remember, Recommend for Teens reading journal:
Harry Potter Read-Alikes, page 74
First Fantasies, page 87

    I agree with you, my daughter has the teen journal and I feel as though I need one of my own. I love the adult journal and refer to it several times a day. I had a hard time prying it out of my sister’s fingers yesterday.
