We're serious about series!

Have you checked out the 'Teen Series Books' shelves lately?  I love browsing this section.  Every time I look, I find something that I have not seen before.  Yesterday I discovered the Gallagher Girls series by Ally Carter.  I was already a big fan of the author after reading her Heist Society trilogy (check these out in our fiction section!) so I picked up the first book and started reading.  The series focuses on an all-girls boarding school in Virginia.  But, instead of the usual academic courses, these girls learn 14 different languages and how to disarm a bomb!  Most of them will eventually work for the CIA as spies.  It is very light and fun, a perfect beach read this summer or great as a break from the more serious homework and school-related reading during the school year.

If fantasy is more your thing, we have many series you might enjoy.  I started The Ranger's Apprentice series by John Flanagan this past winter and can't get enough of it!  The Redwall series by Brian Jacques is popular with students in fourth through seventh grade.  The Doctor Who series is fantasy/science fiction that can be read in any order.  Let us help you find what you are looking for!

Do you like romance?  We've got you covered!  The Gossip Girl series lets you experience the privileged and sometimes cut-throat life of  New York City's Upper East Side.  S.A.S.S is a little more tame but still fun.  We have dozens of romance series to choose from.  Come and browse or ask a librarian for suggestions.

We have a series for you!  Take a look next time you're in.                       KR
