Book Recommendations



Kathleen's Pick: e-Audiobook on Hoopla
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James
Stranded on a spaceship speeding away from Earth, Romy is euphoric when she gets word that she will soon be joined by another ship, but as the Eternity gets closer, Romy begins to suspect that the captain has a mission all of their own.

"This book is tense and creepy--and a great reminder that I don't have it that bad! Romy is completely alone in space, with civilization light years away. Her only connection to life back on earth is through email, so she is overjoyed when she learns that someone will soon be joining her on another ship. But then the doubt creeps in. Can she trust a person she has never met? This book is thrilling and unpredictable. You'll get whiplash from all the twists and turns!"
--Kathleen
Marie's Must-Read: Graphic Novel on Hoopla
Fence by C. S. Pacat
 Nicholas Cox is determined to prove himself in the world of competitive fencing, and earn his place alongside fencing legends like the dad he never knew, but things get more complicated when he's up against his golden-boy half-brother, as well as the sullen fencing prodigy, Seiji Katayama.

"This graphic novel series all about boys competing in the sport of Fencing. It’s got DRAMA, SPORTS, ROMANCE! If you loved Check, Please by Ngozi Ukazu this is a great series to binge next! Make sure you check out the collected issues so you don’t use up all your downloads! --Marie
Sam Prescribes: eBook on Overdrive
Where The World Ends by Geraldine McCaughrean
 In the summer of 1727, Quill and his friends are put ashore on a remote sea stac to harvest birds for food, and only the end of the world can explain why no boat returns to collect them. A survivalist tale that questions humanity and belief. A Printz Honor Book.


"Every once in a while you come across a book that you beg your friends to read so that you aren't alone with your thoughts. It's so good. It shakes you. Beautiful. Breathtaking. Powerful."
--Sam

What Laura is Loving: eBook on Hoopla
Symphony for the City of the Dead
by M. T. Anderson
 A breath-taking history of Leningrad told through the experiences of composer Dmitri Shostakovich who dedicated his seventh symphony to his city of Leningrad, giving strength to the millions trapped inside the city through the 900-day siege during WWII. 


"A beautifully written reminder of the power of music in the face of hardships--from heartbreak to pandemic, music offers us strength, hope and companionship."
--Laura
Skye's Suggestion: eBook on Overdrive
Call Down The Hawk by Maggie Stiefvater
While dreamers Ronan Lynch and Jordan Hennessy work to control their powers and stop destructive dreaming, government agent Carmen Farooq-Lane is hunting dreamers to prevent the prophesized apocalypse.

"This is the much-anticipated sequel to Stiefvater's The Raven Boys series, and it lives up to the hype. It feels as otherworldly and whimsical and uncanny as her other books. While it's a treat for those who have read The Raven Cycle, it's not necessary to fully enjoy this book."--Skye
