May Book Pick:
Daughter of the Burning City by Amanda Foody
This was the second official Mysterious YA Book Club Discussion. We usually break up into groups of 4-6 depending on the amount of people that show up (usually over 30). Constance does a wonderful job of providing discussion questions, but the really adorable thing that she does is make 5-6 different little pictures that we pick at random to determine our small discussion group for the night. This time she used pictures of the characters from the book! I really enjoyed discussing this book in our group, especially because I didn’t finish it. It was wonderful to get answers about how the book proceeded, and hear what people liked, and didn’t like, about this story. The general consensus within my small group was that it lacked a depth necessary to be an amazing book, but the ideas and details were appreciated by all of us!
