Every year, the Texas State Library chooses 20 or so books that will appeal to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade readers.
When the list is announced, Bethany and Bonnie like to go on a shopping spree at the book vendor's to make sure we can get these books in your hands.
These are the books we're most excited about having available soon at Bastrop Public Library.

This is the series I've been obsessed with as I mourn the end of Queen Sarah J. Maas's Throne of Glass series (the seventh and final book Kingdom of Ash was released on October 23rd and is available in the Teen Room: YA F Maa-- check the new side of the A-frame).
A patron requested that I order Reaper at the Gates earlier this summer, and I was reading book reviews about it, it piqued my interest, so I started with number one in the series: An Ember in the Ashes.
