Paul Pope and his upcoming graphic novel THE RISE OF AURORA WEST at San Diego Comic-Con!
I can’t wait to read this sequel to BATTLING BOY.
Every time we think we’ve adequately captured our TBR piles and current obsessions, we discover another book - which of course leads to another book and so on - that reminds us how much good stuff is coming out this fall (and even though we’re reeling from the fact that summer is nearly over, we’re already looking out for great books for 2015), and still there are plenty more! We’ve barely scratched the surface here, but you can always find more 2014 reads on our Goodreads shelf* here. Keep an eye out for our ongoing recommendations, and click on the links below to place holds on items currently in our catalog!
*There’s so many, we could go on for days: dystopian novels, like Love Is the Drug; dramatic reads, like Beauty of the Broken; retellings, like The Fall (as in of the House of Usher); suspense, like Kiss Kill Vanish…and more.

Summer reading is coming! Let us help you find a great book.
I love Like, Try, Why charts.
We might have mentioned before how much we love science fiction, and the fact that this year’s summer reading theme is Science. Actually: Science!! It needs an exclamation point.
So, we’ve put together a really, really, incredibly huge booklist (working title? The Hive) for fans of science and fantasy fiction - and we added a little something extra, since, if you’re anything like us, when you love reading a genre, you love to watch films and shows, and play video games, in that same genre.
And if you’re playing Reading Bingo this summer with us for Summer Reading - or if you’re planning to take part in our Summer Fling (With a Book)! matchmaking program - then these books will definitely see you through summer and beyond!
I like this format a lot.
Totally stealing this for displays in our Teen Center.
Hahaha, steal away! And add to it! If we’d had more room, we would have added more books, trust us. :)
Have we mentioned before how much we love the Pickerington Library? Well, it bears repeating. Also, if you haven’t read READY PLAYER ONE, go do it. RIGHT NOW.
And then the minute you reblog us, dear lovely people over at NPR Books, we pick up followers and likes and reblogs. It’s a beautiful thing and we appreciate the love more than we can say.
We feel a gif post coming on….
The Legend Fandom right now….
IT comes out in April though….
We’ll make it! We can wait! (Not really. But we’re gonna.)
I can’t wait to see how this is adapted.
