The Library’s pick for Best Book of the Year in 2013 and 2012 were young adult titles: Rainbow Rowell’s Eleanor & Park in 2013 and John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars in 2012. We love the rich variety of stories in this genre, even if some of us are past the suggested reading age.

(OK. A few of us are way past the suggested reading age. Thank goodness the books don’t care, they only want to be read!)

    I’d like to add “Carry On” by Rainbow Rowell, which was not released at the time of the list nomination deadline.
    I finished it today, and it was, well, magical. (Yes, it’s about magicians. That’s a pun.)
