Not Just for Teens

Recently teen books have become very popular with adult readers.  Many people enjoyed reading The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins, The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne.  As the Teen Librarian, most of my personal reading is in the teen book area.  I still read an occasional “Adult “ title and enjoy a wide range of adult authors.  However, I find that many “teen” books are fun and exciting to read with complex ideas, plots and relevancy.   The following are some of my personal favorites.

Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly [ separared by centuries, a teen tries to cope with the tragic deaths of two young boys]
