We have some new books for teens that I would recommend! All of these titles are available through the Alameda County Libraries. You can look on the online catalog ( to find where they are available or to place a hold on one of the books.

Fire by Kristen Cashore. The much anticipated sequel/prequel to Graceling. In a kingdom called the Dells, Fire is the last human-shaped monster, with unimaginable beauty and the ability to control the minds of those forestofhandsandteetharound her, but even with these gifts she cannot escape the strife that overcomes her world.

 The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan. Through twists and turns of fate, orphaned Mary seeks knowledge of life, love, and especially what lies beyond her walled village and the surrounding forest, where dwell the unconsecrated, aggressive flesh-eating people who were once dead.shiver-final-cover

Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater. In all the years she has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house, Grace has been particularly drawn to an unusual yellow-eyed wolf who, in his turn, has been watching her with increasing intensity.

Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. Sequel to The Hunger Games. By winning the annual Hunger Games, District 12 tributes Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark have secured a life of safety and plenty for themselves and their families, but because they won by defying the rules, they unwittingly become the faces of an impending rebellion.

Great additions! I enjoyed Shiver and loved Catching Fire! The Forest of Hands and Teeth wasn’t bad. I still have to read Graceling but glad to see we now have Fire in the system!
