Summer Debut Fiction

While reading a new book from a favorite author is always something to look forward to, there's also something wonderful about the discovery of something brand new. This summer has been full of debuts, with many still coming. Take a look at these titles from first-time novelists that were published in July and August, featuring selections from both Dundee and Randall Oaks libraries.

Dundee:

New Adult Fiction

Just because libraries and bookstores were physically closed for months, that didn’t stop large numbers of books from being published during the lockdown period. Now that we’re back at Dundee, our Technical Services department has been working hard to process all the books on order that came out during that closure and since we’ve opened for curbside. Here’s a sampling of some of the new novels that have recently hit the shelves while you haven’t been able to browse.

New Teen Fiction

Have you gone through your stack of library books at home and are looking for more to read? Here are some new books that were recently added to the teen collection. These books fall into a range of genres-- contemporary, science fiction, mystery, fantasy, historical fiction, romance, and a collection of short stories. You can sign up to have your holds delivered to you, or, starting Monday, you can pick up your holds that are ready for pickup curbside at the Dundee Library.

Fiction You Might Have Missed

Now that FRVPLD has begun delivery service, maybe you're ready to give your Kindle or iPad a rest and are itching to pick up a physical book again. Here are some fiction titles that were released in the weeks leading up to our closure that maybe you didn't have a chance to take a look at. These books are all available on the shelf at the time of writing. Place your holds now to have them delivered to your doorstop!

Series Opening Books

Apart from lengthy books, which I wrote about here, extended time at home is also a great time to dive into a new series. The possibilities are endless, but here’s a selection of first books in popular series that you can get through our e-resources. If there's a hold list on one source, see if it's available with no wait on another! 

Reading Recommendations for Winter Reading Challenge

Have you signed up for the inaugural Winter Reading Challenge yet? If it doesn't sound familiar, take a look at Elizabeth's blog here for more details. Registration opened up on Sunday, December 9,  and there are different challenges for youth, teens, and adults. A couple of the challenges on the adult list are to "check out a cookbook and try out a new recipe" and "read a winter themed book". If you're looking for inspiration in those categories, I've compiled some suggestions that fit the bill below.
