from Micah Scott Shaffer - Graduate Assistant

While our library’s primary mission is to support Edgewood students in their studies, we also have lots of fun materials that often go unexplored by many of our patrons, including a large collection of childhood favorites, popular fiction, and graphic and YA novels.  We have some highlights of newer books right by the stairs on the ground floor, but head upstairs to the back wall and you might feel like you are browsing the YA section of Barnes and Noble.

Need a suggestion for where to start? Maybe one of these categories might speak to you. 

I’ve been meaning to read more diverse authors…Book cover: Whiteout by Dhonielle Clayton

Try Whiteout, the sequel to Blackout (we have both!), a collection of interconnecting Black love stories by BIPOC authors that takes place during a snow storm in Atlanta.

More suggestions:

Palate Cleansers aka I need something light and breezy:

Take a look at Check, Please! Book 2, Sticks & Scones by Ngozi Ukazu. This adorable graphic novel is about an unlikely love story between two Hockey Players.

More Suggestions:

Wait, that author wrote other books?Book cover: Pony by R. J. Ralacio

Pony by R.J. Palacio (who wrote Wonder), about a boy on a journey to save his father with his ghost companion. Yes, it is a book for kids, but when it is really good, who cares?

More suggestions:

I love the movie/TV show but I never read the book:

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng. Drama, drama, drama.

More Suggestions:

Wow, I have not thought of that book since I was a kid:Book cover: Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Anne Brashares

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants by Ann Brashares. Four best friends share a pair of jeans that somehow fits each of them perfectly (it sounds sillier than it is) and accompanies them on their adventures.
