Come and check out these and some of the other new books and materials (or at least new to us) for Young Adults added to our library collection…

FICTION:

All These Things I’ve Done by Gabrielle Zevin

Ship Breaker by Paolo Bacigalupi

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

A bestselling and critically acclaimed juggernaut for young adult readers, which is especially nice when you consider that it doesn’t involve robots or magic or vampires. I’ve heard from quite a few of our patrons who said that it’s become their favorite book. And it looks like it’ll eventually be adapted into a film starring Selena Gomez.

Paper Towns by John Green

The Disreputable History Of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart

Dreamland by Sarah Dessen

The Odyssey by Gareth Hinds

A graphic novel based on Homer’s epic, classic poem, this book has been very popular since we got it and something I’d definitely recommend to any fans of Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson books.

When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead

Love Is The Higher Law by David Levithan

Beasts Of Burden: Animal Rites by Evan Dorkin and illustrated by Jill Thompson

Into The Wild Nerd Yonder by Julie Halpern

The Always War by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Girl In Translation by Jean Kwok

Geektastic: Stories From The Nerd Herd by Holly Black

NON-FICTION:

How To Survive Anything by Rachel Buchholz

Just a few of the “anything”s listed on the cover include: Shark attacks, Lightning, embarrassing parents (just as deadly as shark attacks and lightning strikes, to be sure) pop quizzes, “other perilous situations.” Some of those included in the book are mean teachers, hurricanes, lion attacks, avalanches, break ups, and being the new kid. This is a good book to have for just about any situation, it seems.

Sugar Changed The World: A Story Of Magic, Spice, Slavery, Freedom, And Science by Marc Aronson and Marina Budhos

The Notorious Benedict Arnold: A True Story Of Adventure, Heroism & Treachery by Steve Sheinkin

Revenge Of The Sea: The True Story Of The Whaleship Essex by Nathaniel Philbrick

Hot X: Algebra Exposed! by Danica McKellar

Stitches: A Memoir by David Small

I’m really happy that we have Stitches, a graphic memoir by acclaimed illustrator David Small. It’s a fascinating and engaging story about the artist’s tormented childhood dealing with a dysfunctional family and chronic disease and eventually the loss of his ability to speak due to a surgical mishap. And after the loss of one voice, he finds another in his ability to draw and tell stories.

It’s not too late to pick up some books or DVDs to keep you warm over the Holiday break. There’s plenty of normal titles and materials from you to choose from, plus that of the more seasonal variety…

…like Murder For Christmas, which you see above, which is a very cool anthology featuring several classic writers of the mystery and crime genre, such Dame Agatha Christie, John Dickson Carr, Ellery Queen, and Dorothy L. Sayers. And don’t forget that we have plenty of books for the kids and younger readers dealing with the holidays.

And just a reminder: Don’t forget that our hours are going to be slightly different between now and the end of the year. These are our hours for the next two weeks:

Monday, 12/19 thru Thursday, 12/22: 10 AM to 5 PM

Friday, 12/23 thru Monday, 12/26: CLOSED

Tuesday, 12/27 thru Thursday, 12/29: 10 AM to 5 PM

Friday, 12/30: 12 Pm noon to 5 PM

Saturday, 12/31 thru Monday, January 2, 2012: CLOSED

And we will reopen on Tuesday, Jan. 3, 2012 at 10 AM and resume our normal hours of operation.

Happy Holidays!
