When we come to the library to hunt for something new, we are usually on “auto-pilot” and head directly for the adult section of the library. Yet YA books have a lot to offer, even for those of us beyond our teenage years. And there’s lots of variety!
For example, for a walk down memory lane and a chuckle or two, consider reading one of Beverly Cleary’s wonderful YA books, which include: Fifteen, Jean and Johnny, The Luckiest Girl and Sister of the Bride.
For those of us who still love our superheroes, think about starting the new DC Icons series. The first book in the series, Wonder Woman™: Warbringer by Leigh Bardugo, was just released on August 29th, and will be followed by Batman™: Nightwalker by Marie Lu on January 2, 2018; Catwoman™ by Sarah J. Maas in the summer of 2018, and Superman™ by Matt de la Peña in the spring of 2019.
Finally, lovers of fairy tales will want to consider watching for The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert, which is due out on January 30, 2018. This dark fairy tale has been described by one reviewer as “pure imagination candy.”
