October 12-18th is the American Library Association’s official Teen Read Week of 2008, and the theme is Books with Bite.  If you haven’t already read Breaking Dawn, the latest installation of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series, this would be a good week to do that.

  1. New Moon by Stephenie Meyer (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers, 2006).
