So, starting putting some titles on request to hold you over during the cold Thanksgiving break.
Be aware that this list is created specfically for teens in high school because of some of the titles' mature content.

So, you're heading back to school. I bet you are feeling all sorts of different emotions. Happiness? Fear? Excitement? Indifference? Absolute and utter dread? Well, regardless of whether you are happy to go back or just counting down the days until Thanksgiving Break, here are a few books that may help you get back into the rhythm of things.
Everybody loves legends and myths, and teen fiction is full of these tales starring mythical creatures or gods or powerful magic. These books are reimaginings or modernizations of classic stories, creatures, and people that you've learned about all your life! If you want to read about life in a goddess boot camp or what it would be like to be a modern day siren living in New York, then check out these excellent books:
Every year, 16 school and public libraries are selected to serve as a Teens' Top Ten nominating group. All nominations are made by teens ages 12-18 and they select their favorite young adult books from the previous year. Nominations are announced on Support Teen Literature Day, the Thursday of National Library Week.
Voting begins in August and the winners will be announced during Teen Read Week in October.
So, start reading!
Here is a video, courtesy of YALSA, highlighting this year's nominations:
So maybe you've seen your kid brother or sister reading these books. The covers look cool. You might have been intrigued, but you probably thought they were reading some children's book and then you started playing Halo and forgot all about it. Well I'm here to remind you of these awesome books! Check them out, even if they're in the children's section. We'll never tell!
The Summer 2013 SYNC List has now been posted!
SYNC is a program provided by Audiofile, the magazine for audiobook lovers, that provides free audiobook downloads every summer. Each week SYNC provides two free downloads: one modern young adult title and one classic title.

You guys know I'm obsessed with Fantasy books, so here are some new titles at the library! Remember, some of these are sequels so make sure to pick up the first book if you need to.
