For the past few months, Mrs. Chung’s class has been doing book clubs. This is where everyone in the class are allowed to choose as many books, which happens to be as they want to read and talk about with friends. Last month, in January, the “Chunglings” have chosen the top books that everyone else wants to read and talk about. These are some of the most popular books that were read that month:
