If You Like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ...

This semester, my students are sharing book reviews in a different format, linking one book they thought many people in the class might have read and another that would appeal to a reader of the first book. (Please note that my third graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for third graders.)

This "If you like ... read this next ..." format was inspired by the We Need Diverse Books summer reading series. They used the format to encourage people to find and read diverse books, so all of their "read this next" choices highlight great, diverse book choices. You can find their posts here on their Tumblr page.

If You Like Harry Potter 7 ...

By: Sadie

If you like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, then you will love The Nest!

This well written book by Kenneth Oppel is about a boy (named Steve) who finds a nest in his back yard... Explore the secrets of The Nest and and uncover the secrets of Steve's backyard! Find out who is good and who is bad, who is telling the truth and who is pulling your leg, who is real and who is not!

On the back of this wonderful book it says:

I thought
it was just a dream
I thought
it had no power over me
I whispered

The Nest is just like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows in the scene that they both are mysteries that have that spooky creepy ghost story type of thing!

I would recommend this book to any one who likes mystery, bugs, ghost stories, or anything else along those lines!
