The new year has begun, and we hope you are as pumped as we are about it! This year, we invite all of you to embark on the journey of taking on a great reading challenge, known as the 2015 Reading Challenge by Popsugar. You can find the full list here, so feel free to print it out and use it as a handy bookmark. Each month we will highlight four to five categories from the list, offer at least one book for each age group for each category, and then provide you all with more resources so you can find interesting books for each category. Also, join us on our Facebook page and tell us what you've read and which category it covered.
Let's get started on our January highlights!

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

Is she ever in for a surprise. First Mom announces that she's dating Mia's Algebra teacher. Then Dad has to go and reveal that he is the crown prince of Genovia. And guess who still doesn't have a date for the Cultural Diversity Dance?
