How many books do you go through in a month? Do you and your friends read the same title and discuss a few chapters when you're done? If you could start your very own book club, what's the first book would you read? Here's our list to get you started!

Steph Yapnayon, Art Director

Stargirl by Jerry Spinelli is a good YA read for any teens. —Steph, Art Director

Dyan Zarzuela, Entertainment and Features Editor

Really loved Jon Skovron's short story in the anthology Summer Days and Summer Nights, so I'd like to read his books, specifically Misfit and Struts & Frets.  —Dyan, Managing Editor

Bianca Mascenon, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

I think the Anna and the French Kiss trilogy would be a great place to start. ?? —Bianca, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

Mara Agner, Assistant Lifestyle and Features Editor

I'd probably start my book club reading list with A Long Way Down by Nick Hornby or This is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Tropper—both are funny reads despite the heavy topics!—Mara, Assistant Lifestyle and Features Editor

Macy Alcaraz, Web Managing Editor

I was a huge fan of The Bobbsey Twins growing up. I can start a book club just going through the whole series! —Macy, Web Editor in Chief

Clare Magno, Art Director

My friends and I started  a book club once, and our first read was To All The Boys I've Loved Before by Jenny Han. J  —Clare, Web Art Director

Ayessa De La Pena, Web Editorial Assistant

Any book by Joan Didion. I've been trying to finish Blue Nights for the longest time already. LOL, huhu. :( —Ayessa, Web Assistant Section Editor

Janelle Yau, Fashion and Beauty Assistant

Eleanor and Park. I've been meaning to read this, but I keep forgetting! —Janelle, Fashion and Beauty Assistant
