Hey readers! I hope you're enjoying this YA classic from one of my personal favorite authors, Judy Blume!

TIGER EYES is also one of my favorite books, and there have been a ton of covers for the book over the year, most of which depict Davey:

Tigereyes9 by PinkyMcCoversong  Tigereyes6 by PinkyMcCoversong  Tigereyes5 by PinkyMcCoversong  Tigereyes7 by PinkyMcCoversong  Tigereyes8 by PinkyMcCoversong
Tigereyes4 by PinkyMcCoversong  Tigereyes3 by PinkyMcCoversong  Tigereyes2 by PinkyMcCoversong  Tigereyes1 by PinkyMcCoversong

Art Feature!

Before we're far into the book, Davey and her family go out to New Mexico to spend time with her aunt and uncle and get away from the trauma they sustained in New Jersey. Davey is stunned by New Mexico's beauty, so I thought I'd feature some photos taken in New Mexico:

summer feverr: santa fe skies by thisisbecc  Mailboxes by michaelmaroon

And now to discussing TIGER EYES!

  • 1. Have you read other books by Judy Blume? How do you think TIGER EYES compares?

  • 2. Judy Blume has gone on record as saying that TIGER EYES is the only time she has self-censored, deleting a scene in which Davey masturbates while thinking about her crush. Do you think JB made the right choice?

  • 3. Which edition of TIGER EYES are you reading? I'm reading an older edition, but in newer editions of her books JB and her editors made updates to the texts to modernize them for new readers. Have you noticed these updates? Do you like them? And, regardless, do you think this is a tactic that works for stories/authors? Should authors update their stories for technology or let them reflect the era in which it was written?

  • 4. TIGER EYES starts off with a really traumatic event occurring, putting the main character, Davey, and most of the characters in the story on shaky footing. Do you think the author depicted the reaction to trauma accurately? Was there anything that surprised you about the depiction?


For a little change of pace, we thought it would be fun to do a photo based prompt. SURPRISE! Use one of the above photos to inspire a piece of flash fiction or a poem. GO FOR IT! Participants will get extra participation points toward the prizes. Because.....


We have some hot new contemporary YA from fantastic authors to give away this month courtesy of Merit Press! The winner this month will get a copy each of HALF IN LOVE WITH DEATH by Emily Ross and IDENTITY CRISIS by Melissa Schorr!

Rosshalfinlovewithdeath by PinkyMcCoversong    Schorridentitycrisis by PinkyMcCoversong

To win prizes—and you are going to want to win these prizes—participate in the discussion, try out some of the activities, and be present in book club. It's that easy! Our top participant for the month gets the monthly prizes, and the top participant for July-December gets the prize bucket of all the prize books from the second half of the year. YAY!

I can't wait to see what y'all have to say about TIGER EYES!

And if you're making preparations for future reading, don't forget to check out the book club schedule and be sure to vote on our poll for the books we'll be reading next!
