Kingsbridge Library Teens

“…to any teenage boys out there who might be reluctant to read about girls or books written by women: What are you afraid of? The worst thing that could happen is you’ll discover that girls are people too, and not necessarily all that different from you. The best thing you’ll learn is how you can act like a decent person, so girls might not mind talking to you. They might even say yes when you ask them out. They might ask you out, and you should be cool with that. Another boy might ask you out, and that could be cool too. Maybe you want to say yes. Look, there are no “boy books” or “girl books,” there are only good books and bad books. Seriously, go read some Judy Blume. You’ll thank me later.”
— E.C. Myers from Confessions of a Male YA Author (and author of the smart sci-fi Fair Coin)

Summer Fling with a Book may be over, but the book recommendations live on! We’ve rounded up all of the suggestions we made this summer, and in the grand tradition of…the last massive booklist we did, we turned it into a giant flow chart! Here is everything we recommended for readers who opted for adult fiction - our romance, science fiction, fantasy, mystery/thriller, and beach read picks!

The YA edition is up next, and we promise: that one is even bigger

This is cute & makes me feel like a real life YA author. :D

We vouch for Faith Erin Hicks being a real-life YA author!  We have even met her in person so can swear she does exist.

Christina and I sat together at breakfast, and earlier she shielded me from the rest of the dormitory as I changed. I haven’t had a friend like her before.

I guess I haven’t really had a friend, period. It’s impossible to have real friendship when no one feels like they can accept help or even talk about themselves. That won’t happen here. I already know more about Christina than I ever knew about Susan, and it’s only been two days.

A few of the book to movies in the last half of 2014.

Everything on this list gives me positive vibes except for Paddington.  I loved the books and even had a stuffed Paddington Bear when I was growing up.  But the trailer for the new movie looks SOOOOOOO stupid!

Favorite Book Series  Meme [3 / 10]: The Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer



Soon, the whole world would be searching for her -Linh Cinder. A deformed cyborg with a missing foot. A Lunar with a stolen identity. A mechanic with no one to run to, nowhere to go. But they will be looking for a ghost.
