Novel Madness 2018

Every year in March, to coincide with basketball’s March Madness, my sixth graders participate in Novel Madness to choose their favorite novel of all time. They brainstorm their top sixteen favorites, then pair up to create persuasive speeches. Here are this year’s top 16:

 

The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate

Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins

Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson

Maze Runner by James Dashner

Holes by Louis Sachar

Walk Two Moons by Sharon Creech

Frindle by Andrew Clements

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle

Chomp by Carl Hiaasen

Matilda by Roald Dahl

Hatchet by Gary Paulsen

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling

The Witches by Roald Dahl

House of Hades by Rick Riordan

City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau

 

This is an excellent lineup that includes old favorites like Matilda and Holes, and favorite authors like Rick Riordan and J.K. Rowling. This list also include first-time appearances by Chomp, and Fever 1793. Good luck everyone!
