New Books For My Classroom Library

I picked up some new books for my classroom library. One book in particular, I am very excited about and it's Annexed by Sharon Dorgar.  It will work perfectly with my Anne Frank unit; I am definitely looking forward to this read.  The other books are just some fun books to add to my growing classroom library.  

Here they are:

Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card

The Dead and Gone by Susan Beth Pfeffer

The Westing Game by Ellen Rankin

The Cupcake Queen by Heather Hepler

This World We Live In by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Knightley Academy by Violet Haberdasher

Hollow by Jessica Verday

Annexed by Sharon Dogar

Have your read any of these books? I look forward to reading them and seeing if they are a good fit for my classroom's library.  


  1. I haven't read any of these, but Annexed is definitely on my to read list. Can't wait to see what you think of this. I like the sound of a couple of these, actually. Knightley Academy looks like it might be my kind of book!

  2. I can't wait to read Annexed. Do you have a copy already? I am still waiting for mine. I also purchased the last book in the Life As We Knew It series. Love it! Thanks for sharing these titles.

  3. Ender's Game is one of my favorite science fiction books and the gifted teacher uses this with her 8th graders, but I recommend it to any of my kids who like sci-fi. I also love all of Pfeffer's books. I jsut got a copy of Annexed and am quite excited about reading from Peter's point of view. Great choices.

  4. The Westing Game is awesome! That was my favorite book when I was a kid. Your students will love it. :)

  5. Yay for annexed! i'll be reading it soon. I have also ordered the hollow, it should be here soon. knightley academy looks good, i'll have to check into it. i hope your class enjoys the books.

  6. Leanna- Annexed definitely looks good as well as Knightley Academy. I can't wait to read them!

    Mrs. D- I just got my copy this past weekend. I guess B&N had it out too early! Oops! I love The Last Survivors series, too!

    Kate- I know, right?! It's sooo good and a lot of them aren't familiar with the book so I am going to push it this year!

  7. Ender's Game is such a classic. I thought Cupcake Queen was decent. I haven't heard of Annexed. I want to look it up now.
