New Teen Fiction

Danielle's picture

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.

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! 

Meet Carlos Hernandez (Author of Sal and Gabi Break the Universe)

The Dundee Library Youth Department will have a special guest author this summer!  Carlos Hernandez is a Science Fiction/ Fantasy writer for both children and adults.  His latest book is a popular and widely acclaimed children’s chapter book, Sal and Gabi Break the Universe!

Dinosaur Day

Dinosaurs are one of those subjects you might get interested in as a kid but never get too old or too cool to stop loving. When I was young, I was a self-proclaimed expert on all things dino. Unfortunately, as much as my passion for Jurassic Park remains, over the years I've forgotten many of the facts I used to cram my brain with.

Dark Beach Reads

Oh sure, you could read about beach houses, dog detectives, and middle aged women getting a new lease on life while you’re enjoying the hot August sun.  But what’s the fun in that?  You already know how those books end-- the dog solves the crime, the middle age woman finds a new love at the beach house (the hunky repairman, let’s say).  Instead, take a trip to the dark side this summer and check out one of these recommended reads below.  They are still fun and fast reads, but just a touch more sinister!    

Books on TV: Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror

Books on TV is back, and this time we’ll take a look at TV shows that are based off of Science Fiction/Fantasy/Horror books. Some of these shows fit in to one of these three genres while others have elements of more than one of them. Take a look at the list below and reserve the shows and/or the books they are based off of with your FRVPLD card today!
