N5B: Goosebumps

The first book in the Goosebumps series was published in 1992 and they are still going strong! Since then, R.L. Stine has even published a few spinoffs like HorrorLand and Haunted Library, but at some point it is just time to move on! For you Goosebumps lovers, here are your Next 5 Books:


Books for Daisy Scout Petals

Recently, the leader of a Daisy troop asked for help with finding a good book for each of the petals that the girls will earn, so I put together this little list and realized that she may not be the only one with this need. Here you will find five books for each of the attributes that the petals represent; some books might be too long, some books might be too short, but hopefully there is a book on the list that is juuuuuust right!

N5B: Percy Jackson

I know many kids in Easton are fans of the Percy Jackson books, and I absolutely agree! I love Percy Jackson so much that I made my mom read them--and you know what? She loves them too! Percy Jackson transcends the normal juvenile fiction demographics and there are so many books in the series that they can keep you busy for a long time. Did you know that Rick Riordan is coming out with a new book in the fall? I heard that it is about Norse mythology and the home base is our very own Boston, Massachusetts!

N5B: Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Diary of a Wimpy Kid is a favorite of a lot of kids around here, and it's no wonder why! The books are funny, they have awesome line drawings, and the main character is totally relatable. But what happens when you've read all of them... twice? Don't worry! Here are your Next 5 Books!
