Maybe one of your New Year's resolutions was to read more and you haven't really stuck to it. Well, Thursday March 2nd is a great day to get back on track. National Read Across America Day is an opportunity to promote reading with children, but adults can celebrate too!

If you're looking for a good book to dive into, a few of the staff members here at the station have offered up some of their favorite reads in this list. I'm sure you'll find one worth picking up at your local library.

    If You Give a Pig a Pancake

    Laura Numeroff

    This is Gazelle's choice. It's currently sitting in the FUN 107 studio (not sure why), but Chris literally can't seem to put it down. Spinoff of 'If You Give a Mouse a Cookie,' this is sure to bring your family together for laughs before bedtime.

    The Red Queen

    Victoria Aveyard

    This is my personal recommendation. If you liked The Hunger Games series, then you will probably love this book. I read it last year and immediately bought the sequel "Glass Sword." The third book, "King's Cage" was released in early February 2017, and that's probably what I'll end up reading later today.

    The Fault in Our Stars

    John Green

    Even if you've already seen the movie, you should read the book too. This is probably true of any book/movie adaptation combo, but especially anything by John Green. Have tissues on hand, because you WILL ugly cry.

    One More Thing

    BJ Novak

    BJ Novak is known for his roles in the Office, Inglorious Bastards, and Saving Mr. Banks. Bet you didn't know that he's also an author of 2 great books. "One More Thing" is a collection of short stories and our Event Manager's favorite quick read.

    Pillars of the Earth

    Ken Follett

    Who knew a story about building a church could be so thrilling? This is Michael Rock's choice. A classic in its own right, it follows the lives of those intertwined in the English town of Kingsbridge during a time of "civil war, famine and religious strife."

    Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

    Ransom Riggs

    A group of kids live in a home with a woman named Miss Peregrine. Each of these children has something unique about them (not necessarily a super power). Think X-Men, but instead of using their powers to save the world, they're literally just trying to survive themselves.

    Nancy's choice is a good read for all ages. There's also a movie adaptation by Tim Burton that came out last fall.
