TV Show Read-A-Likes: Teen Wolf & Once Upon A Time

If you work with teens, you know that sometimes the hardest part of readers' advisory is getting the teen to tell you what was the last book they liked.  My fall back question has become "what TV shows or movies do you like?" and that has helped me a lot.  For some reason, teens seem to be much more willing to discuss current television with an adult than books (at least until they are comfortable with the adult).  Go figure.

So stay tuned! This week I'll be doing a series of posts for YA reading recommendations based on popular teen TV shows.
