Novel Winner Crowned!

NOVEL MADNESS has come to a close in my classroom today with the final debate over favorite novels. Both by Rick Riordan, Maze of Bones and Lightning Thief are worthy contenders. Both have swept through the classroom like wildfire, and students have kept on reading both series. Student reviews of our top sixteen books will be posted over the next couple of weeks, so come back and check us out! Now on to the announcement.

2012 Novel Madness Winner is



Maze of Bones is the first book in the 39 Clues series, all of which are written by different authors. Next year, maybe the winner will be my own On a Wing and a Dare.

    I like this book. However I think the reason the book got place #1 was because basically our whole class is reading this series during the time period of novel madness. The other books had their time in our classroom and went away. Right now the popularity of the series is decreasing.

      That is very true. During novel madness, I would hear everyone discussing how the book was one of their all-time favorites. But after novel madness, I haven’t heard anyone talking about it! It’s a shame since it was such a great book to read!
